More about this hidden paradise -so glad it’s private and not mentioned in any travel publication- in Stanford: click here (opens in new window). But there are places similar (but not as diverse) in Stanford that are more accessible for a wider public such as the hiking trails with waterfall at Salmonsvlei Dam along the Papiesvlei Road and Pigs Snout along the road to Hermanus. Just ask the local tourism bureau in Stanford. This ‘Garden of Eden’ however, we like to keep to ourselves. It just accentuates the choice for Stanford as ‘Best Village Destination in South Africa’.
