One of the oldest areas in Cape Town, and South Africa, Constantia doesn’t always get the credit it deserves. From the incredible wine farms, to the unrivalled beauty of the valley, as a whole, Constantia has a story to tell.

Right on the city’s doorstep, the Constantia Valley is home to some of the oldest and most prestigious farms in the country. Each farm has its own unique selling point and charm, but one thing they all have in common is fantastic wine and superb attention to detail. Groot Constantia, Klein Constantia, Steenberg Vineyards, Constantia Glen Wine Estate, Beau Constantia, Buitenverwachting, Constantia Uitsig, Eagle’s Nest and Silvermist all await you in the valley.

Beyond the wine route, visitors can enjoy a number of award-winning restaurants and popular local favourites with La Colombe Restaurant at Silvermist Wine Estate, 5 Rooms and the Greenhouse, just a few of the sensational spots that await you in the valley.

If you’re keen on a round of golf, Steenberg Golf Estate and the Westlake Golf Club are regarded as two of the best courses in the city and well worth a round or two while in Cape Town.

If adventure is also calling, Constantia hosts the Zipline Adventure above Silvermist Estate a must for those seeking an adrenaline rush. Acrobranch offers the same to the kids, the area has a number of trails to explore for hikers and trail runners.
