The stunningly beautiful Boland towns of Paarl and Wellington have become renowned as the ultimate holiday destination for families. Whether you’re planning a quick day visit, weekend stay or extended holiday breakaway, multi-generational groups are accommodated with varied activities and offerings to suit any age group.

Garden tours at Babylonstoren will get kids excited about going green, while the goat ambassadors at Fairview are absolutely irresistible.  If getting active is your thing, visit Wine Valley Adventures or Paarl Adventure Trails at Spice Route and Rhebokskloof with special hiking routes, kiddies’ tracks, and bike hire. You can also opt for a nature drive at Bontebok Ridge Reserve.
