The quiet town of Durbanville, is about a 45 minutes drive from the Cape Town city centre. It is most likely not your number one choice for interesting places to visit outside the CBD.
Besides being known as the home to a number of award-winning wineries, there isn’t much info out there on what to do in the area. Be that as it may, I ventured there for a weekend of exploring.
A friend and I made the trip from Cape Town to Durbanville on a sunny Saturday afternoon with the aim of having a combination of a relaxed weekend and a bit of an adventure.
Our home for the weekend was the Protea Hotel by Marriott Cape Town Durbanville on Jip De Jager Drive.
