This is only one of many university sites in Stellenbosch but it is well worth having a look at. It won’t take you long, just wander in off the street absorb some history and snap a couple of photographs.

Stellenbosch was and still is an afrikaans university although it is under lots of government pressure to change. The neatly kept buildings and gardens and the level of expertise in the faculties speaks to the Afrikaners ability to maintain, manage and educate.

We took a drive around and even went inside the university to explore. I was very impressed by the architecture and charm of the school and surrounding community. Defintely a student area but one will appreciate the charm about it.

This is one of the better universities in South Africa and one of the most traditional ones. It is a lovely school in a pretty town in the heart of the winelands.
