Are you a Winelands mom who loves to write and enjoys visiting trendy (but also very child-friendly) spots with your family in the area where you live?

Whether it is a cycle track on a wine estate for toddlers, a coffee shop around the corner with mega drawing boards for the kids or the nursery down the road with a jungle gym, we would like to know about it and share it with other moms!

We are specifically interested in articles on places and activities in Franschhoek, Somerset West, Wellington and Paarl.

Kindly note that we currently do not pay for articles but we do clearly indicate who wrote the article with a short bio on the author and we also believe in back-linking to your own personal blog/ business website. The Stellenbosch Mom also reserves the right to reject articles that are not up to scratch and do not adhere to the following prerequisites.


  • Lots of photos of “mommy angles”: views that other moms would like to see of the place/ activity (which we may edit if the quality does not meet the standard)
  • 500 – 800 typo-free words
  • The author has to be a mom (or dad) and needs to be written with your “mommy lens” intact. Moms need to know what to expect and this means they need to know what to pack for the outing, the costs involved, directions – in short EVERYTHING as moms like to be prepared!
