What to do at Palmiet Valley Estate

What do you do in the Cape Winelands for fun? Wine tasting, gourmet food and golf of course.

Palmiet Valley Estate is located in the heart of the beautiful Cape Winelands in the historic town of Paarl. Paarl and the surrounding wine farming towns of Franschhoek and Stellenbosch are famous for their world class whites, reds, sherries, ports and brandies. Ways to experience the Winelands during your South Africa holiday include by foot, on horseback, or in a chauffeur-driven classic limousine from Palmiet's vintage car collection. 

A highlight of any visit to the Winelands during your South Africa holiday is a wine tasting trip through these picturesque towns and farms, sampling the wine and cheese produced here, visiting the historic farm homesteads and Huguenot monuments dating back to the 17th century, browsing the quaint high street antique shops, and lunching in some of South Africa's finest restaurants or picnicking on any of the wine estates along the way.

Mountain Hikes

There are some great mountain trails for you to enjoy during your South Africa holiday, and the Drakenstein Mountain Reserve is home to a variety of protea plant species, rare birds, baboons and mountain bok.


Paarl is famous for its rock climbing terrain. This activity caters for the adventure-seeker and includes a descent through the Limietberge canyon using abseils, jumps, belays and traverses. With no less than six waterfalls, abseils range from 15 to 50 metres with the option of cliff jumping for the brave-hearted.
