Stellenbosch’s tourism sector, like all tourism in South Africa, has been hugely challenged throughout the lockdown – but through Support Stellenbosch, the town is embarking on a number of initiatives to drive demand and inspire locals to visit and support the businesses in and around the town.

Support Stellenbosch has been created to inspire locals to support local and stimulate our town’s economy and pave the way for its swift recovery. To that end, we are extending this solidarity to support our restaurants and tourism businesses that continue to be affected by the lockdown and resulting lack of patronage,” explains Jeannneret Momberg, CEO Visit Stellenbosch, the town’s official Destination Marketing Organisation.

The Support Stellenbosch campaign calls on residents to support local business through experiencing the town like a tourist.  This includes an online directory of restaurants, accommodation and experiences which are Stellenbosch Ready, having adopted Visit Stellenbosch’s safety and hygiene protocols, endorsed by the World Travel & Tourism Council.

“On Saturday, 5 September, we kick off a Support Stellenbosch month with a fresh new rewards campaign where locals and visitors will receive a voucher to the value of 50% of what they spend (for transactions of R200 or more), redeemable through SnapScan at any participating restaurant within the campaign period (capped at a maximum of R400). There are also special travel packages, accommodation and experience discounts,” explains Momberg.

There’s never been a better time to visit Stellenbosch, she adds. “There are incredible Support Stellenbosch deals to be enjoyed: from wine blending, horse riding through the vineyards and discounted wine-pairing experiences across Stellenbosch’s award-winning wine region, to art walks and guided cycle tours.”

Support Stellenbosch will include a special Showcase of the town for locals in the last weekend in September, October and November, providing locals with special offers.

“This astounding show of support among Stellenbosch accommodation, experiences and restaurants to revive the town’s tourism economy is an incredible example of what one town can do when it comes together behind the common goal of making it safe and easy for guests to visit. This really is a first for South Africa. There’s nothing we like more than hosting friends in Stellenbosch. This initiative gives us an opportunity to do just that,” concludes Momberg.
