Board the train in Cape Town and enjoy a 55 minute journey to Vredenheim. Your destination is the Vlottenburg station, situated right next to Vredenheim’s own farm. After disembarking, your journey will take you through our sprawling fields, which are home to a variety of game including zebra, ostrich, wildebeest, bontebok and gemsbok.

All that travelling is thirsty work, so you’ll be greeted with a tasting of our wines in the Tasting Room. Our own red and white grape juice will be on offer for kiddies and those who opt for a non-alcoholic option.

Next, it’s time to make your way through our expansive gardens and along the dam to our Big Cats Park, where you’ll meet the Bengal tigers, leopard, cheetah, caracal and white lions that call Vredenheim’s wildlife sanctuary their home. From the King of the Jungle to the fastest land animal on earth, you’ll have the unique opportunity to view these magnificent creatures up close and to learn more about them from our expert guides. Don’t forget to bring your cameras along for this unforgettable experience.

Afterwards, it’s time to tuck into one of Hudson’s Venue & Restaurant‘s famous picnic baskets, each brimming with a selection of cold meats, salads, freshly-baked olive & rosemary ciabatta, cheeses, biscuits, homemade relish, fresh strawberries and decadent chocolate brownies.

Kiddies are treated to their own super-cool picnics (no grown-ups allowed!) with a hot dog, crisps, cheese, juice, fresh fruit and sweeties, all served in an activity box with crayons.

Once you’ve sipped, viewed and tasted the very best that Vredenheim has to offer, it’ll be time to board the train once again and head back home. A once-in-a-lifetime experience for the whole family to enjoy. Places are limited, so book now to avoid disappointment.
