Cape Town will put a magical spell on you! We also recommend a drive to the fascinating Cape of Good Hope. A visit of the penguin colony at Boulders Beach is also a worthwhile stop. Or how about a boat trip to Robben Island to learn more about Nelson Mandela and the Rainbow Nation? To satisfy your culinary streak, participate in a Cape Malay Cooking Safari.

Winelands South Africa


Not only the landscape is pure enjoyment; also the award-winning wines are a treat. If you love chocolate, wines and a bit indulgence, you have come to the right place. The winelands region has excellent restaurants offering local and international cuisine. You also find cosy little street cafes. Go on a trip to discover award-winning wineries or take a walk through the fascinating landscape.


Grootbos Nature Reserve offers a unique and luxurious travel experience. This 5-star eco-paradise is nestled between mountains and sea. The property was built in harmony with nature. Each suite offers an incredible view from your private patio. Grootbos is certainly a highlight on your culinary travel. You can expect a fine dining experience with a difference: fresh, local produce and homegrown organic ingredients.


Explore historic settler villages dating back to the 18th century. Visit a popular ostrich farm. Discover Cango Caves stretching over several kilometers underground featuring some of the biggest stalagmite formations. We recommend to take the Route 62, which is the most panoramic route connecting Cape Town with the Garden Route. Zigzag through dramatic mountain passes, desert-like landscapes and drive next to refreshing streams.


The Garden Route is one of the most scenic routes in South Africa stretching over 300km from Mossel Bay to Plettenberg Bay. You stay at the Tsala Treetop Lodge in Plettenberg Bay. Tsala is a small luxurious haven in a sea of ​​trees. The speciality is its wine cellar. It’s a tribute to the wine growers of South Africa and presents the best wines of each region. Each wine is carefully selected and maintained so that you can enjoy its wonderful flavors. There are also fantastic views and romantic sunsets. Surely, you would not want to miss that on a culinary travel, right?


Karoo means “land of thirst” in the Khoe-San language. You explore this magical place during game drives. Don’t expect Big Five sightings, rather enjoy amazing landscapes ranging from dense thicket to sweeping vista of high-plateau grassland. Be mesmerized by beautiful sunsets and star-filled night skies. You also have the opportunity to study the finer things of nature on your walking safari – no vehicles, no noise, no rush.


Multi-award winning Shamwari Game Reserve is one of the best wildlife areas in the Eastern Cape Game Parks. This region is free of Malaria. Be on the lookout for the Big Five during your morning and afternoon game drives in an open safari-viewing vehicle. Enjoy coffee breaks and sundowners in the African bush and indulge in an authentic and exclusive safari experience.
