WATCH | Tourist hot spot the Cape Winelands silent during lockdown

accreditation

The Cape Winelands - home to some of the world's best wine producers, which are nestled among small towns that attract hundreds of tourists every year - are now hauntingly silent because of the lockdown. 

News24 visited the area, and only a few people can be seen out and about getting essentials. 

The N1, which would normally be filled with Easter weekend holidaymakers, only had trucks making their daily deliveries.
