    A Must have experience!
    We went for a Game Drive on Friday the 5th of Jan 2024. Such a cool experience and ended it of with a nice wine tasting. Never knew their were Game Drive options in Stellenbosch. Will definitely recommend doing this! Perfect for friends, great as a couple experience. Big thanks to Daniel for the informative tour and the great wines. See you all soon!

    Great value for money
    Did game drive and wine tasting. Amazing value for money. Was surprised at the quality of the game drive given the price. Saw giraffes, lots of zebra, antelopes and tour guide was really knowledgeable.

    Great game-drive
    Visited at Saturday 9am for the 2-hour game drive. We were staying in Franschhoek village and it took about 30 minutes to get there in the car. You drive through the vineyards to get to the reserve. The driver was very knowledgeable and friendly. You can see a lot of animals close up in the reserve. We saw Giraffes, Zebras, Waterbuck, Bush Pig, Eland, Springbok and many other animals. I'd highly recommend this game-drive. It cost r350 for an adult and r175 for a child. It also included a welcome glass of cap classique and wine tasting at the end. You can get cheese and charcuterie platters to go with the wine tasting.

    Magnificent humans, animals and bubbles
    We arrived to a mysterious misty Villiera wine farm on a cool Saturday morning. We were greeted by warm hosts with bubbles and then wrapped in blankets to find the animals hiding in the mist. The animals were wonderful but what really made this experience stand out was our game ranger, Guillaume. What an interesting man he is. He entertained us with stories, theories, facts and humour. This man was so enchanting that we felt like booking another game drive just to engage with him some more. Guillaume also led us through the wine tasting (the bubbles are delish) to end a wonderful, memorable morning of making memories together with our family and friends.

I visited here as part of a wine flies tour. Nice vineyard, with a glimpse behind the scenes. Known for their sparkling wines, we enjoyed several samples and some biltong under the large majestic oak trees.

Our little one is nearly 3 which is too young for a proper game in the kruger but he loves giraffes and we wanted to give him a taste for it. We did the 2 hour game drive followed by wine tasting and it was excellent. The driver Guilleum was great and very knowledgeable and we saw: eland, wilderbest, spring bok , fish eagles and giraffes. This was rounded off by some excellent villeria wines. Highly recommended for families with young kids. They also suggested a place for lunch Joostenberg Bistro just down the road for lunch. Topclass.

The game drive experience is a must. This is not the Kruger Park but an hours drive from Cape Town, it is a real treat to see so many antelope, giraffe, zebra and much more. Our ranger Daniel was extremely knowledgeable and gave us lots of information about the whole Villiera estate. It was a unique experience to observe the animals so closely and for so long. The fabulous game drive experience is followed by a superb wine tasting of very fine wines. Guilliaume was excellent in his suggestions and knowledge...we went home with 6 bottles and a lovely jar of local honey. A brilliant day out and all very affordable too.
