Entertainment for everybody!

This wine estate offers a lot more than just wine. They have a restaurant, wine tasting and wild animals and specific lions that you can observe from close by.

Visited the lion park, only to be able to experience a beautiful wine farm with amazing views, wine tasting, big cat tour and a good choice in restaurants. An unforgettable afternoon spent watching a wedding setup, drinking good wine and eating a fab meal sat outside in the gardens. Highly recommend this place.

The beautifully maintained gardens have some mountains in the background which provide a lovely view. There is ample on-site parking... More

We visited Vredenheim in March last year to view the gardens and have lunch with my family. The gardens are lovely and really worth a visit, the restaurant is excellent and the Sunday Lunch is a treat.

Just a good restaurant, the animals are better to view on other places. Lions are kept in much too small cages.
