As mentioned in the last newsletter, visitors to L’Ormarins and the Anthonij Rupert estates can now experience a touch of nostalgia with a ride in one of FMM’s custom-built ‘trams’, a form of public transport popular in South Africa a century ago. The new versions link the museum, Terra del Capo and Anthonij Rupert wine tasting centres, each picturesque journey between the estates lasting around 30 minutes. Hop on/hop off conditions apply.

Recently, the museum has been questioned about visiting facilities for motorcyclists and the new tram service helps considerably in answering the calls.  For various reason motorcycles are not allowed onto the L’Ormarins Estate. Now, motorcycles can be safely parked at the Anthonij Rupert wines tasting venue on the old Graham Beck estate, which is now part of the group. Riders can then travel on the trams to L’Ormarins/FMM through the winelands, taking in areas that previously were not open to the public. WH/MM
