Wellington - the South African winelands town you didn't know about

Anyone who's been to South Africa even if it's just once will have heard of the famous winelands towns of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek.

But there are many more lesser-known, smaller towns which have a great variety of offerings, for instance Wellington. This particular town has none of the over-marketed feel of its more famous cousins yet is less than an hour from Cape Town.

We particularly like the story of Chippa's Shisa Nyama (a sisha nyama is like a large public barbeque with a bar): this one was started by Mr. Chippa himself who made some money as a 'telepreneur' (setting up mobile phone booths in former townships) and now runs this very successful and upmarket eatery.

Popular with all segments of South African society, you get a great meal and an even better welcome.

Ethos

Our logo is an image of a skull found in the Rising Star Cave System in Gauteng, South Africa in 2013. It was named ‘homo naledi’, meaning ‘human of the stars’.

The cave system has so far given rise to the remains of over 15 individuals, making it the largest hominid fossil remains site ever discovered.

Travelling to Southern Africa is truly a return to the source of humankind, to Where It All Began.
