More about River Cruise

Trail your feet in the cool waters of the Breede River, while toasting the good life with a glass of Viljoensdrift wine on board their elegant flat-bottomed river boat named Uncle Ben 2.

The approximately 1 hour-long meander along the river, flanked by indigenous Breede River Yellowwood and Wild Olive trees teeming with a variety of bird species, sets the scene for a leisurely riverside experience. Fill your picnic basket to the brim with sumptuous fare from our deli, add a bottle or two of Viljoensdrift’s fine wines and enjoy your picnic during your trip down the river. What better way to spend a laid-back afternoon with family and friends?

Opinions On River Cruise

What the locals say about River Cruise.

Penny Wartnaby

We thoroughly enjoyed our cruise. The scenery was beautiful. The Deli offered a good selection of tasty picnic eats which were very reasonably priced. It was nice to be able to do some wine tasting afternthe cruise as well. The staff were all friendly and courteous.

Frieda Maritz

What a lovely experience! My husband and I enjoyed the wine tasting before hand and we selected wonderful, fresh items from the deli for our cruise on the river. The cruise exceeded our expectations and would recommend this to anyone.

Coen Asjes

Cruise was very nice. Unfortunately Viljoensdrift wines were not my taste.

Lynne Nilsen

The river cruise was fantastic. Our group had a wonderful time. And we sat and listened to music and had lunch. A really wonderful way to spend a Sunday.
