Stellenbosch encourages tourists to ‘travel’ with cultural interest

Avid travellers and intrepid explorers in search of more inspirational encounters off the beaten track can now engage with the vibrant locals of the Kayamandi Township through fun-filled tours on foot by Stellenbosch 360, the town’s tourism outfit, as part of their Route 360 cultural tourism initiative.

Rather than being a geographical route, Route 360, is a ‘people’s route’ that paves the way into the hearts and homes of six Stellenbosch communities through authentic cultural experiences that offer visitors a colourful slice of the locals’ unique lifestyle, traditions and tastes.

Kayamandi, a pulsating community close to the town centre, is the first of the diverse dozen to offer their own cultural Township Tours, conducted by Route 360 and designed to showcase the abundance of inherent talent and natural resources. Rare experiential offerings and enlightening excursions through Cloetesville, Ida’s Valley, Jamestown, Klapmuts and Raithby are also on their responsible tourism charts for the near future.Continue Reading …
