Gastronomy TourDescription ~ Gourmet Getaway 

Savour a variety of flavours in breathtaking locations among sun-drenched landscapes lapped by two oceans and lush valleys lined with vineyards.

Get a taste of the Cape’s cosmopolitan essence and unique blend of cuisines, cultures heritage and history.

Take part in interactive cooking sprees. Discover the subtleties of Cape Malay cuisine with its fusion of spices, sweet and sour flavours and East and West traditions while in the Constantia valley, the art of wine blending in Franschhoek and authentic South African specialities on a three day culinary excursion in the charming Karoo town of Prince Albert.  

Visit classic and contemporary wine estates. Taste Old World & New World styled wine, unearthing the secrets of their terroir. Meet respected foodies and acclaimed chefs. Tantalise your taste buds – at award winning restaurants and be enchanted by the provenance of  things.

Stay at three magnificent Relais & Châteaux properties – in Cape Town, the food and wine capital Franschhoek and the seaside resort of Hermanus, as well as in a traditional Karoo cottage in a gem of a village nestling under the majestic Swartberg mountains and UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Prince Albert, a little oasis with beautifully preserved architecture, is home to African Relish, a recreational cooking school where you’ll discover the pulse of South Africa.

Embark on an epicurean expedition: relish bounty from the Mediterranean – cold pressed olive oils, sun ripened fruits, aromatic fynbos infusions, fresh fish; flavourful game from the veld and succulent lamb from the Karoo, all washed down with stylish wines.

Engage your food senses on a journey of discovery through enchanting landscapes filled with gastronomic delights and exhilarating interactions. If these dates don’t suit, there’s another option that takes you to a magnificent luxury refuge in August for a different sort of cooking spree.

Opt for a safari experience of a lifetime … discover the magic and majesty of Africa, and lighten your carbon footprint in the process. 

Look over these Safari Extensions for magnificent destinations on private concessions … such as among the rolling hills of the Eastern Cape, in malaria free reserves at the end of the Garden Route, or around Kruger National Park further north.
