Some of life’s finest pleasures are a beautiful setting, good company, great cuisine and excellent wines – all the better when combined. One of the greatest joys of where we work is that the Cape Town is the cuisine capital of Africa, boasting 8 of the Top 10 restaurants in South Africa. Just down the road, the Cape Winelands offers exquisite mountain-ringed valleys, magnificent wine estates and awarded restaurants; making this truly is one of the world’s most idyllic food and wine destinations. Open air dining in the bush is another quite unique experience and Southern Africa’s wildlife destinations are matched by sumptuous fare and award-winning wine lists. This is your invitation to savour your way around Africa.
