Getting to Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch is roughly equidistant from the N1 and N2 for delegates who travel here by car. The nearest commercial airport is Cape Town International Airport, which is serviced by all domestic airlines and several major international carriers. Cape Town International Airport is 35km from Stellenbosch and the conference is unable to provide shuttle services to/from the airport. Bettina Shuttle provides a shuttle service to/from the airport.


Stellenbosch is a major tourist destination and there are a wide variety of accommodation options available both in town and in neighbouring areas. Accommodation ranges from low cost backpackers to high end boutique hotels and guesthouses. STIAS is at the far edge of the Stellenbosch University campus, adjacent to the Jan Marais Nature Reserve, and is within walking distance from the historical town centre.

Stellenbosch University has a limited number of self catering flats (ranging from two to four beds) available on campus. The Waldenhof Guest Apartments are the closest option to STIAS. See for more information.

A full listing of accommodation options is available from Stellenbosch Tourism at However, please note that this, exhaustive, listing includes accommodation that is also significantly further afield, and several wine farm options. You can filter the search to limit your choices. Each listing has a map, which you can use to identify the distance from STIAS.
