The ground at Paarl is as beautiful as I've ever seen: rocky mountains in view, plenty of greenery. Not much to the town, as I recall, but you can get there on a day trip from Cape Town, by train or car. Wine country.

Bloem - the ground is central, by an artificial lake. There is not much to Bloem. I wouldn't advocate a special trip. Lots of better places in S.A.
