Your trip is not complete until we meet

Paarl, located in the heart of the Cape Winelands, is the third-oldest town in South Africa lying in a beautiful valley between the Drakenstein Mountains and Paarl Mountain, a landmark outcrop with three enormous granite boulders on top. Its attractive Cape Dutch homes, famous vineyards and glistening mountain range beckon year-round. More recently, Paarl featured on the world stage when former president Nelson Mandela was held at the Drakenstein Prison during the last part of his 27-year incarceration.  Paarl is well worth a visit as it offers a variety of accommodation, restaurants to dine in, wine farms to visit and scenic drives.
