Barely an hour and a half's drive from Cape Town lies the historic country town of Tulbagh, nestling in an exceptionally beautiful valley surrounded by majestic mountains.
With heritage and natural beauty, award-winning winemakers, a theatre to entertain, a chocolatier, accommodation and restaurants to suit every taste - the question is actually: "Why Not?"
On the 29th September 1969, the quietness of night was shattered at 22h05 by tremendous explosive sounds followed by a gigantic roaring, rumbling noise rolling forward like the waves of a stormy sea. Stupefied people rushed outside over broken glass and fallen plaster. The mountains surrounding Tulbagh resembled a city of lights as falling rocks acted like flints on the tinder-dry vegetation and started fires.
CHRISTMAS IN WINTER FESTIVAL: 28 & 29 JUNE 2014 Christmas once again comes early this year as Tulbagh dons its winter cape in the month of June and welcomes the rest of the country to join them for a weekend extravaganza of wonderful winter warmers.
