Friday – Arrive in Tulbagh

Ease into the weekend in luxury. This 4-star hotel is centrally located on historical Church Street and boasts a main building that dates back to 1859. Get rid of the week’s stress; indulge in a massage or treatment at the in-house spa or relax with a craft beer or gin cocktail in the wine bar.

Satisfy your hunger and tantilise your taste buds; indulge in a meal in one of Tulbagh’s oldest houses. Built in 1754, Readers Restaurant offers local and international cuisine.

If you want a more unique experience, opt for a personal menu created specifically to suit your needs.

Saturday – Enjoy the town

Breakfast – The Tulbagh Boutique Heritage Hotel

10% off your accommodation when paying with your Capitec card.

Start your day with a mouth-watering breakfast. Whether you follow a gluten-free, varied or vegan diet, the menu at the Olive Terrace Bistro, located at The Tulbagh, is created using locally sourced seasonal produce and caters to all tastes. Plan your day’s activities with a cup of coffee next to the fireplace or take in the mountain landscape from the terrace.

Mountain biking – The Tulbagh Boutique Heritage Hotel

Rent 2 bikes for the price of one when paying with your Capitec card.

Surrounded by beautiful mountains, Tulbagh is the ideal place for a mountain bike adventure. Hire a bicycle from The Tulbagh, and get a free safety helmet and route map. An easier route takes you on a tour of local wine estates. However, if you’re up for a challenge, a more difficult route takes you up into the valley where you can enjoy unspoilt mountain views.
