3 Things to Try While Vacationing in Franschhoek, South Africa

When it comes to fine wine, South Africa might not be the first country that comes to your mind. We didn’t think it likely that the place had much to offer in terms of that either, but one trip there and that country has now become one of our favorite wine spots to visit. But we don’t just frequent anywhere in South Africa, no. Our choice place is none other than Franschhoek.

The place has been dubbed a ‘haven for wine connoisseurs’ and if this describes you, then give us a call and we'll book you a flight to South Africa right now. Here are some great things to discover while you're in Franschoek, South Africa:


· The Wine Tram is Coming for You

We’ll tell you right now that Franschhoek Valley has made a name for itself around the world because of its excellent cuisine and wonderful wine estates. And don’t even get us started on the amazing scenery of its mountain-valley setting.

There’s so much to see and do there, which is why a tram tour is a perfect way for you to go about all this, making optimum use of time.

The double-decker railway tram offers great tours that give you an uninhibited view of the beautiful and picturesque valley. And with over 5 routes to choose from, you don’t have to worry about a lack of variety.


· Hike & Bike

Wine isn’t the only thing you should look forward to when in Franschhoek. The environmental group known as Golden Leaf has done a remarkable job of establishing and maintaining a series of biking routes.

Rent a bike and enjoy the vast and scenic view of the Berg River. If that’s not sweet enough, the valley heralds a cool and refreshing air that’s made even better by the cool breeze of the dam. The two of them merge to give you something that’s honestly one of the most pleasant and rejuvenating experiences you'll have in your life.


· Leopard’s Leap Wants to Feed You

The famed kitchen can be found at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards. A vacation that doesn’t involve food in some way is not complete, don’t you agree? This kitchen is one of the best places to go for a fab lunch experience.

The best part is, of course, the actual food! You’re in South Africa, after all, so expect to taste cuisine you’ve neither seen nor ever heard about before. And you get to chow while chatting with adventure seekers like you and sipping on the finest wine Franschhoek has to offer.

Do you mind if Roux Luxury Travel joins in on the fun, too? We always take time out to appreciate Franschhoek anytime we send clients there. Because we’re a full service travel agency in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, one of my favorite things to do is send wine enthusiasts and vacationers to great destinations around the world.

Why not give us a call for your next vacation to South Africa? It doesn’t matter if this will be your first vacation to South Africa or not. With us guiding you every step of the way, the experience will be the most memorable one for you yet!
