Stellenbosch is situated in the Cape Wine lands district. It is the oldest town
in South Africa after Cape Town and undeniably the most picturesque and historically-preserved
town in Southern Africa. Ideally situated in a magnificent mountain valley outside
of Cape Town, Stellenbosch boasts a mild Mediterranean climate and is the ideal
destination from which to explore the wine lands, Cape Town itself and the Cape
Peninsula. The beach is 20 minutes away.
An academic University town, Stellenbosch has a bustling sidewalk café scene, excellent
gourmet restaurants, and a vibrant nightlife for all ages. Eating out in Stellenbosch
is an experience not to be missed, with restaurants offering everything from traditional
South African fare to continental and exotic fusion cuisine.
South Africa is one of the most diverse and enchanting countries in the world. Exotic
combinations of landscapes, people, history and culture offer the traveller a unique
and inspiring experience. South Africa is a heady mix of third and first world cultures
- along with the best and least crowded beaches in the world. Throw in wildlife
parks such as the Kruger National Park, eight world heritage sites, beautiful natural
scenery, a great infrastructure and you have a great destination waiting to happen.
If you would like to combine your Rolfing training with some travelling in South
Africa, we will be delighted to help with any requests you might have with regards
to destinations, accommodation and help to connect you to reliable local agents

There are numerous options available within walking distance of the training premises
as well as the centre of town, ranging from Hotels, Bed & Breakfasts to Backpackers.
South Africa’s currency is the rand. Because of fluctuations against other currencies,
it is best to contact your bank for an update on exchange rate.
