Itinerary Description:

This exclusive luxury South Africa culinary tour begins at the source of the country's gastronomy scene, in vibrant Cape Town. Within the iconic blush painted walls of Belmond Mount Nelson, experience the afternoon tea that has become a Cape Town institution and gourmet dining in the hotel's elegant Planet Restaurant, one of the top ten hotel restaurants in the world. Matching the stylish décor are Chef Rudi Liebenberg's custom-designed, interactive culinary menus featuring 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.

Next, continue your South Africa culinary tour in the Cape Winelands within the authentic 17th century Cape Dutch farmhouse estate of Babylonstoren. Featured on Condé Nast Traveler’s 2015 Gold List, Babylonstoren is a luxury inn and working farm renowned for its immersive farm-to-table atmosphere and bucolic beauty. Spend days strolling through the expansive gardens, procuring ingredients for your gourmet dinner, canoeing down the farm dam, and cycling through the Simonsberg vineyards, quite possibly the finest terroir for wine in Africa.

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, and boma dinners under the stars, experience Sanbona on your own schedule, venturing out in search of the reserve's rock art and rare white lion.
