We all have a responsibility to take care and adhere to the regulated health and safety protocols – whether we’re at home or travelling.

Stellenbosch was awarded Africa’s first stamp of approval from the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), which outlined the necessary safety precautions to ensure destinations are ready to welcome back travellers.

Part of our commitment to you is ensuring that Visit Stellenbosch members continue to comply with stringent health and safety protocols aligned with international and local best practices.

We also know that you are looking at a destination’s readiness based on its vaccination rate. We are actively working towards our goal to get 100% of the staff of Visit Stellenbosch members fully vaccinated for your peace of mind. Keep an eye out for the Visit Stellenbosch Ready & Vaccinated seal. Support our fully vaccinated (to date) Stellenbosch businesses.
