This will certainly be an informative session, built around congenial photographic devotees. There will be hidden gems to be explored, and photographers can immerse themselves with the relaxed Artistic community of the Riebeek Valley, a community that enjoys their wine, olives, cheese and great conversations, in a tranquil environment.

The laid back simple way of life in the Riebeek Valley, revolves around long lunches and warm chats, enwrapped by the beautiful vistas. The Riebeek Valley is full of boutiques, galleries, restaurants and shops that vie with the best of them, all for easy country comfort living. For the people who live in the Riebeek Valley, because of soul, story and sense of place, they are uncompromising in their pursuit of individual expression.

From art, architecture, croissants & café society, combined with a background of the Swartland and its surrounds, lies a hidden gem offering spectacular views and authentic villages for a contemplative, slow-travel photographic experience. This is your opportunity to rediscover (discover) your creative talent, in a series of the most historic towns in South Africa.

The warm soft glow of the sun over the Kasteelberg, and those seen in a distance over the Winterhoek, Witzenberg and Obiqua Mountains creates a beautiful atmosphere and form some of the best light of the day. In the town we will have more contact with locals, and take some portrait photography. Along the way you will learn many aspects of photography, and whoever needs it, will get support.

No matter what your level is, there is certainly no pressure. The tour is a good mix of learning new skills, having a good time and getting more in depth knowledge.

Embark on a 2 night package in the charming Riebeek Valley, just 80km from Cape Town. Rejuvenate yourself in the picturesque beauty of this country town, better described as "arts town", which reveals a scenic marvel of world class wine , landscape and untouched country style community existence. Very special and very colourful. This getaway is filled with an abundance of photographic splendours. I refer to this place as the "bread basket of Africa".
