Weltevreden Estate is an amazing venue just outside Stellenbosch. They have a restaurant, kids outdoor wonder-world and accommodation on the farm. The staff (Venue Manager Libby) was absolutely amazing and they treated us and our students with so much care and respect. Nothing was too big or too small to ask.

Our students were treated with delicious food and drinks throughout the 3 days. Day 1 we had some delicious filled chicken with a cheesecake for dessert. Day 2 we had a hearty bowl of pasta and yummy chocolate fondant for dessert. On day 3 we ended off with amazing lamb chops and veg! Dessert of course being a yummy chocolate brownies.
