The Brandberg Mountain is 2 573 meters above sea level making it Namibia’s highest point. It derives its name from the glowing colours it reflects during sunsets.

In 1955 it was described as a “white lady’’ by Henri Breuil, who made the connection to paintings he saw in Greece. Hellenistic influences have been excluded in its origin but the name stuck. The name is also misleading as the painting is that of a male hunter.

Clos Malverne Estate
This wine estate in Stellenbosch is your wine tourism destination. Here at Clos Malverne you can experience handmade wine and great food with a view, get married or have a stunning function. Spoil yourself in beautiful surroundings at the spa and stay over in luxury guestrooms right on the winefarm of Clos Malverne Estate.
Clos Malverne is truly a family affair. Besides overseeing the entire operation, Seymour and his wife Sophia, have spent enormous time and effort successfully developing international markets for their wine estate. Seymour’s daughter, Belinda Pritchard-Quickelberge, makes sure that Clos Malverne’s visitors are well looked after and pampered at the day spa, also situated on the estate. Even Seymour’s mother has a role to play, if in name only. Auret, the flagship wine of the range, is her maiden name, and Seymour’s middle name.
We practice a careful “handmade” style of winemaking, with minimum interference by the winemaking staff, resulting in elegant wines, which are expressive of their terroir. We are one of only a handful of wineries in the world that remain true to the traditional and time-honoured way of using a basket press. Basket pressing is one of the oldest methods of pressing grapes; the Ancient Greeks and Romans developed it, later perfected by the French, basket presses were one of the earliest styles of a mechanical press, and using a basket press means that it is extremely time consuming. The results are soft, elegant wines of great complexity.
Open fermenting cement “kuipe” is also used and their grape-skin caps are punched-down by hand. The cellar can effectively manage the crush and vinification of up to 400 tons of grapes, although the yields from the vineyards are presently producing at 350 tons per annum. Small French and American oak casks are used to mature the premium red wines.
Shrouded in the misty veils of the Devon Valley, lies the 27 hectares that is Clos Malverne’s premises. The Devon Valley microclimate is the key to the quality of the grapes grown in this serene environment. Although the valley is shallow it acts as a natural receptacle for the mists that linger around Stellenbosch in the early morning hours of summer. The valley is cooler than surrounding areas, significantly lengthening the ripening season, resulting in grapes of ideal ripeness.
Our vineyards reside on the gentle slopes of the valley to ensure the most favourable exposure to sunshine and are located on two separate properties in near vicinity of one another, each selected by degree of varietal affinity to the particular soil type. Dwars-in-die-Weg has 11 hectares under vine, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Sauvignon Blanc. All vines are drip irrigated using water from the farm dam. Clos Malverne’s 12 hectares of vineyards, which include plantings of Pinotage, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, also makes use of drip irrigation.
The food and wine experience with a fantastic view! Since its beginning, The Restaurant at Clos Malverne has been a popular destination for food and wine enthusiasts. Now serving upmarket, comfort food and rustic, wood-fired pizzas - we are opening our arms to all. Our new affordable menu, together with our broad wine list caters for every taste since the recent extension of the ever popular Devonet range of wines. Because of the beautiful view, the outside seating area has also been expanded to ensure no more fist fights over the front row seats. Join us for an unforgettable, mouth-watering taste sensation!
Our popular Winelands destination has developed a devoted following since 2009 for its fresh, seasonal and easy, contemporary cuisine prepared by executive chef Brendan Stein and his team of expert chefs. The interior of the restaurant is stylish yet without any airs and guests can enjoy a wine tasting at the comfort of their own table prior to their lunch.

Coral Divers Dive Resort
Indulge yourself in a relaxed adventure at Coral Divers. Our resort offers a range of accommodation, as well as a professional scuba diving charter and PADI 5 Star Dive Centre in Sodwana Bay. Conveniently situated, it offers the only Dive Centre located inside the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. Enjoy the surrounds of the lush natural bush, wildlife and beautiful sandy beach. Experience the warm Indian Ocean, pristine coastal forests and the abundant fauna and flora of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, both on land and in the ocean.
We offer 3 styles of accommodation inside the park. Choose the option that suits you best, ranging from the larger en-suite cabins, the standard cabins or the really affordable permanent safari tents.
While our air-conditioned en-suite cabins are set in lovely park-like surrounds and come with double, twin or triple bedrooms as well as tea / coffee making facilities and a mini fridge, the rustic standard cabins sleep two guests and are ideal for the budget conscious diver, who does not quite want to "rough it". The bathroom is private and placed adjacent to the cabin with a side entrance.
The third and our budget accommodation option are the safari tents. Enjoy a very social, friendly atmosphere, for when it is simply all about the diving and you just need somewhere to sleep. The tents are basic, but super affordable and are set in rows under a roofed structure to provide shelter from the elements, complete with two single beds. The nearby KZN Wildlife shared bathroom facility provides hot showers and toilets separately for ladies and gents.
