“Durbanville has always been popular with visitors, from day-trippers to travellers eager to experience a little more of the Cape. With spacious rural destinations being safer alternatives for near-home getaways, Durbanville is once again front of mind – and for good reason,” says newly appointed DWV manager Natasha de Villiers.
The region is well-known as a hub for outdoor enthusiasts; for offering the broadest range of wine-and-dine experiences; and, for catering to diverse needs, from those of families to solo road-warriors.
In addition, it offers all this year-round – irrespective of season.
