A self-catering sanctuary in the heart of the Banhoek Conservancy
Find tranquillity in the heart of the Banhoek Conservancy at the progressive Camissa Farm. The roomy cabins and cottages of Camissa Farm are adorned with natural light offering guests the opportunity to step away from busy city life and bask in nature, with epic surroundings of mountains and spectacular panoramic views of the Simonsberg. As pioneers of sustainability and environmental conservation, Camissa Farm has dedicated a large portion of their farm to restoring natural parkland while farming small-scale mixed orchards. Guests can enjoy mountain and hiking trails, day trips to the surrounding vineyards of Stellenbosch, or take in all nature has to offer right from their cottage or cabin viewing deck.
Best time to go to Cape Winelands
The best time to visit the serene Cape Winelands is just before and just after winter (March to May and September to November). This is before and after the rainy season, meaning the weather will be pleasant and warm, but not scorching, and days will feel like they go on and on with late picturesque sunsets. Surroundings will be stunningly green and pair beautifully with a glass of wine in hand.
