Come indulge in delicious local food and wine at AfriCamps at Stanford Hills
. This camp is set on a boutique wine farm in Stanford, an exciting slow food destination with chefs serving an array of fresh and locally produced food. We have 5 glamping tents situated on the foothill of the Klein River Mountain range overlooking a dam and the Stanford Valley. This foodie delight is only a fifteen minute drive from Hermanus and can be reached from Cape Town in two hours.
Stanford Hills Estate is fast becoming one of the area’s most popular attractions. Aside from offering tastings and sales of their award-winning range of wines there are a variety of other activities and attractions. The restaurant, The Tasting Room, is set above a dam with endless views over the Stanford Valley. The restaurant has a reputation for laid back fun, with the emphasis on fresh and inventive food of an exceptionally high standard. The chalkboard menu changes daily according to what is locally fresh and available, including items from their own vegetable garden. The farm also produces Proteas and Pincushions, which are endemic to South Africa, so from August through November the farm is filled with these colourful blooms. The farm offers horse-riding, hiking and even whale-watching by air in a small airplane which takes off from the farm’s private landing strip. You can also have a swim in a farm dam, try your hand at fishing, or simply lie in bed and listen to the birds.
The charming town of Stanford is overlooked by the Klein River Mountains. It is famous for it’s award winning eateries and has an eclectic mix of art galleries, breweries and wine farms, all with fantastic views of this valley area. Stanford is in close proximity to Hermanus, considered as one best whale watching destinations in the world and a treat for adventurous types as there are mountain bike trails, horse riding, shark cage diving and boat cruises, all within the area.
