This picturesque Wine Estate forms part of the Paarl Valley Wine Route and lies nestled between two valleys. A mere 45 minutes from Cape Town, the natural beauty of this estate is complemented by the beautifully restored heritage buildings. Lying at the foot of the majestic Paarl Mountain, this estate offers many different options for the incentive market.
Horse Riding & Quad Bikes
Vines and viniculture have been the backbone this estate was built on. As such the surrounding hills and valleys are filled with the vines used for making wines. Since most incentives have already been to the winelands, a leisurely horse ride through the lush vineyards promises to offer a completely different perspective to enjoying these lush estates.
The rides begin on the beautiful Rhebokskloof Wine Estate and proceed up and into the surrounding Paarl Nature Reserve. Riders are treated to spectacular views of the Du Toits Kloof mountain range, the Swartberg farming areas to the west and the majestic Table Mountain to the south.
The trails are led by experienced instructors and en route two wine tastings at different estates will be enjoyed. A maximum of 25 to 30 horses per time on one outride is possible. For larger groups, we can split and rotate each group between the 18 quad bikes on the estate and the horse riding. This ensures that each guest has the opportunity to experience the surrounding vineyards on horse-back or the more adventurous quad bike.
Step Back to Vintage Carriages
A trip in a genuine vintage model carriage transports you back to a bygone era, when life was a bit slower, but a lot more valuable. As many of the wine estates around the Cape date back to when the first Dutch and French Settlers began the wine industry for which South Africa is now renowned, it seems most fitting to experience these farms in the mode of transport of those times. The carriages travel between the vineyards without using the commercial tarred roads. Up to 75 persons can be transferred at any given time.
Tented Camps in the Vineyards
Chief’s Tented Camp has long been a highlight of incentive travel, experiencing the South African bush at grassroots level. Tented accommodation, in lieu of hotels or lodges, on a full service level has ensured that even the most hardened incentive traveller has been blown away by these tented camps. And now Chief’s is widening out and making the tented camp adventure accessible to a wider range of incentives. Incentive trips are more and more becoming compressed, most times only spending three nights in our country. Now the wonders of Cape Town can be experienced from a ‘camp site’ in the middle of a vineyard.
Chief’s has successfully erected their well-known tents between the growing vines of Rhebokskloof. A superlative experience: a formal sit down dinner right in the middle of the vines or a relaxed drink around a camp fire with sweeping views across the breathtaking valleys and hills. All these ingredients combine to a recipe for the perfect, unforgettable, unrivalled incentive.
