Chugging along the famous Franschhoek Valley…

…in the heart of the Cape Winelands is the Franschhoek Wine Tram. A scenic hop-on hop-off tour takes you to wine estates all over the picturesque Franschhoek Valley. With breathtaking scenery, warm hospitality, renowned restaurants and fine wines, the Franschhoek Valley is one of the most pristine wine regions in the world!

The wine tram is one of the best ways to discover the true essence of the area as you will endure a unique and leisurely experience through rolling vineyards in an open-side tram and open-air-tram-bus stopping in at some of South Africa’s oldest and most prominent wine estates. And the best part is… you don’t need to drive after tasting all the fabulous wine.

The combination of tram and tram-bus allows greater versatility and access to hop-on and off at each stop to experience the activities and wine tastings on offer. The tram lines don’t necessarily run right through the estate front doors so charmingly you get picked up by a vintage tractor for a short trundle through the vineyards between Rocky Bridge and Grand Provence.

Once you get to the end of the line, the magic doesn’t need to stop there. From charming BNB’s to five-star boutiques there are various accommodation options within the Franschhoek Valley region. Sitting on your terrace with a glass of white wine mesmerised by the rolling vineyards or by the crackling fire with a beautiful glass of red, your Cape Winelands experience will be complete.

  • We will definitely be back..

    “Honestly would recommend Unearth Experience to anyone, and we have already had quite a few people asking about who organised our trip and passed on your details! We will definitely be back to Africa.”

  • Spectacular trip...

    “What a spectacular trip Rory created for us! He gave such attention to detail; organized several amazing surprises, which really made the trip even more spectacular. There was definitely no shortage of pinch yourself moments on this holiday! From the moment we flew out of Sydney until we arrived back home, Rory was in regular contact with the group to ensure that everything was running smoothly and that we were enjoying our trip. He was able to plan a holiday which caught all the highlights of Africa in a limited amount of time, and gave us the perfect amount of time in each place. We could not recommend Unearth Experience more highly to organise your holiday. Thank you Rory for a once in a lifetime experience!”

  • Going the extra mile...

    “Thank you for organizing an amazing holiday! I really appreciate it so much - you went the extra mile to make it so special for us. I don't know where to begin... Londolozi was my highlight - the staff were incredible. Thank you for the special things that was organized like the evening wine tasting, the dinner under the stars (while it was full moon) and the lovely Boma dinner! Oh my goodness, I was so excited and could not believe my eyes. The dinner under the stars was definitely something that I will remember for the rest of my life. My other highlight was locking eyes with a beautiful Leopard about a meter from the vehicle. Rory and Karen - that was unbelievable - I still get shivers thinking of it.”
