Flights & getting there

Long-distance bus services charge high prices for the short sector to Cape Town and do not take bookings.

Shared minibus taxis to Paarl (about R50, 45 minutes) leave from the stand on Bird St.

Metro trains run the 46km between Cape Town and Stellenbosch (1st/economy class R19.50/13, about one hour). For enquiries, call Cape Metro Rail. To be safe, travel in the middle of the day. If coming from Jo’burg, change to a metro train at Wellington.
