Practical information

Getting to Stellenbosch

1. International transport

The nearest airport is Cape Town International (CPT). If you transit via Johannesburg make sure you collect your piece of luggage and check it in again. If not, it won’t follow you to Cape Town, one of these things with the way customs operate between international and domestic flights in South Africa.

2. Domestic Transport

  • There are multiple airport shuttle services available. The rates from CPT airport to Stellenbosch are under R400 one way.

  • Uber is also an option
