Travel Tips for Stellenbosch

Butterfly world - Paarl

by mvtouring

Butterfly World, the largest free flying park for butterflies in Southern Africa, opened its doors to the public in November 1996. The concept originated in the UK and such enclosed parks can be found in countries throughout the world. Each year these parks are visited by thousands of visitors and now thanks to the initiative taken by two Capetonian women, South Africans have the opportunity to experience nature at its best.

Butterfly World has a craft shop and the Schmetterling Coffee Garden. Come and see the informative dis- plays and enjoy an experience of a lifetime. Groups are welcome. But- terfly World is open every day of the week from 09:00 till 17:00.

Great care was taken with landscaping the stunning indoor garden, which gives as much pleasure, with all its water features and exotic plants., as the beautiful butterflies flying freely around you. Colourful butterfly-friendly birds complete the lovely tropical garden picture.

The location of Butterfly World on the Route 44 near Klapmuts, just off the N1, is perfect as it lies at the junction of the main Wine Routes of Stellenbosch and Paarl.

There is no time limits on a visit to Butterfly World, and visitors are welcome to take photographs or videos of these beauties. Refreshments and light meals are available from our restaurant, and our craft shop stocks butterfly related goods.

Inside the flight display house, displays depict the life cycle of the butterfly, and if visitors are lucky, they might see a butterfly emerging from its pupa.

The park is open every day of the year except 25 December, and trading hours are 9 to 5, except June, July and August, when the opening hours are 10 to 4.

There are no formal guides, but if a request for a guide is made at ticket sales, we will provide a personnel member who can show the group around. Bookings are not essential, but preferable when a large group is visiting, to ensure personal attention.

Rates (subject to change)
R28 / adult, R15 / child and R70 / family of 2 adults plus 2 children

"Zevenwacht Wine Estate"

The Zevenwacht Restaurant is located within the Manor House and whilst we were there a wedding was going on outside in the marquee.
You can also have a picnic within the grounds and is child friendly too with a play park. It also offers an Inn where you can stay, with cottages and chalets. Also a Day Spa and a Chef School.

This was our first stop on our winetasting tour, so you only get a glimpse of the place really but it was set in such beautiful grounds.

"The Rickety Bridge Wine Estate"

This wine estate dates back to the 17th century and is five mins from Franschhoek. It lies on the slopes of the Franschhoek mountains overlooking the Wemmerhoek Mountain range.

It also boasts a Restuarant which we had lunch in outside on the terrace. It was beautiful like they all were, the scenery was breathtaking in all three that we visited that day. You can also stay here at the Manor House.
After we had lunch we took our wine and sat under the trees with a blanket that was given to us, it was so chilling and relaxing we didn't want to move! The food was excellent too.

A great way to spend the day with amazing views to see all day long. You can do half day tours and full day one, we chose to do the full day.

"A magnificent view from Seidelberg Wine Estate"

This was the last stop of our wine tour day, and this was one I would love to come back to. It was so beautiful here and a place where allot of people come for social gatherings, couples, groups of friends and family and just families, wonderful to see and everyone was having a good time. The backdrop here was breathtaking.
You can also stay here too, as it boasts guesthouses which include a swimming pool, tennis court and sauna.
