With its quaint white-washed cottages, colourful fishing boats, wind-swept beaches, picturesque back roads, burst of wild flowers in spring time and, of course, ‘lekker’ people who know how to spin a good yarn, it’s no wonder the West Coast of South Africa holds a special place in the heart of anyone who’s spent some time exploring here.
So, when we recently got the opportunity to help guide Saldanha Bay Tourism Organisation through the process of developing a new regional tourism strategy and launching a new marketing plan for the West Coast Peninsula, we jumped at the opportunity.

In keeping with the growing global demand for culinary and wine tourism, South Africa recently put the spotlight on wine tourism to attract a greater share of foodie, wine and lifestyle travelers. The wine and tourism sectors in the Cape winelands have come together, guided by a new wine tourism initiative, and made its debut at the 2017 ITB, Berlin earlier this month. ITB is the world’s largest tourism convention and was the perfect platform to put the spotlight on South Africa’s wine tourism experiences and reveal the hidden gems that lie tucked away in regions like the Klein Karoo, Swartland and Cape Whale Coast and where visitors can get a real taste of the local way of life.

It is no secret that Cape Town has some of the best markets and we are really spoilt for choice. On top of that you can attend wine festivals all over the Western Cape throughout the year. You can even attend a mini festival (or is it mega tasting), walking through the streets of Cape Town, once a month on a Thursday evening. I’ve attended quite a few festivals over the years throughout the province but Constantia Fresh stood out above the rest.
