Accommodation

Stellenbosch is a very popular tourist destination in South Africa. November is at the start of the busy season and also a popular time for conferences. Please book your accommodation in advance. Also keep in mind that public transport in Stellenbosch is not easily accessible. Participants either have to book accommodation close enough to walk to STIAS or, alternatively, rent a car. Parking is available at STIAS.
