Cape Town

This exclusive luxury South Africa culinary tour begins at the source of the country’s gastronomy scene, in vibrant Cape Town. Experience afternoon tea at a property that has become a Cape Town institution. Dine on gourmet cuisine in an elegant restaurant, one of the top ten hotel restaurants in the world. Chef Rudi Liebenberg’s custom-designed, interactive culinary menus feature Mount Nelson’s finest ingredients and wines served to Cape Town’s celebrity elite.

While in Cape Town, enjoy a Cape Malay Cooking Safari, gathering local ingredients for a hands-on cooking luncheon. You will also complete a day trip to the Cape Peninsula, touted as one of the most beautiful scenic drives in the world.


Following your stay in Cape Town, continue your South Africa culinary tour in the Cape Winelands. An authentic 17th century Cape Dutch farmhouse estate featured on Condé Nast Traveler’s 2015 Gold List serves as your home base. The luxury inn and working farm is renowned for its immersive farm-to-table atmosphere and bucolic beauty. Spend days strolling through the expansive gardens, procuring ingredients for your gourmet dinner, or canoeing down the farm dam. Or rather, cycle through the Simonsberg vineyards, quite possibly the finest terroir for wine in Africa.

Sanbona Wildlife Reserve

The final stop on this South Africa culinary tour provides a taste of the country’s authentic “explorer’s cuisine” deep in the African bushveld of Sanbona Wildlife Reserve. Here, personal service meets fresh culinary concoctions in the heart of the wild. When not savoring bush meals, sundowners, or boma dinners under the stars, experience Sanbona on your own schedule. Venture out in search of the reserve’s rock art and rare white lion.
