Customer Reviews

Our tour guide (George) arrived on time and was very polite and knowledgeable. We (myself and 2 kids) were the only members of the tour, so that was really special. Despite the windy conditions on the day, we had a good time, with George sharing lots of interesting information regarding the antelope. Due to strong gusts of wind, the canopy of the trailer almost blew away but George amanged to secure it using a pair of pliers and wire that he salvaged from a fence - the girls and I were very impressed by his quick action! Due to the windy conditions we asked George to cut our visit a bit short, but it was a fun and eventful outing, which we will do again. - Neil Gribble

My son and I had a lovely game drive. The ranger was very informative and charming. Our birthday month was well spent and thank you once again. We will definitely visit Vredenheim again. - Gwyneth Abrahams

I can without doubt recommend it! It was amazing! - Evette de Klerk

Vredenheim is just outside Stellenbosch. We went on the game drive (wine and cheese included!) then came back to watch the feeding of the big cats. The wine estate is very attractive and close enough to the Stellenbrau brewery to have a beer on the home. A very nice afternoon and recommended. - Martin Lloyd

We really enjoyed the drive with George, he is a lovely young man very personable and knowledgeable. Our only disappointment was the fact we paid to see the cats but noticed that we could have just walked in to see them like many other people did on the day - Sonia Jacobs
