Food and Wine

There’s no Oliver Twist here, you will be wined and dined to your heart’s content.

Most hotels and resorts offer dining choices from buffet to fine dining with a true melting pot of international and ethnic cuisines on offer. In each city you will find a a variety on offer from the freshest of seafood to a celebration of African flavors in a fun and lively environment.  Explore the Winelands region just outside of Cape Town, where South Africa’s award-winning wines are produced, as well as where you will find their award-winning restaurants.

Most safari lodges offer an all-inclusive menu and most include wines as well.  You’ll want for nothing with bush breakfasts, with freshly baked breads, and lavishly prepared dinners under the open African skies in the boma (outdoor enclosure) with a fire pit, beautifully arranged tables and conversation with like minded travelers from all over the world.  Ask about private dining options, or cellar dining to make your dining experience even more special.

While traveling, immerse yourself in the culture by trying a delectable traditional dish -Biltong, a cured meat that is simply mouth-watering. 

In Mozambique, with its Portugese and Arab history you’ll find the heavy use of seasonings, and the popular Piri-Piri sauce – a flavor as spicy as the country.

When dining in the Indian Ocean, enjoy a menu inspired by traditional Creole recipes and fresh local ingredients.

Whatever your palette, the food and wine will deliver.  Following is a selection of tours, hotels and lodges known for their outstanding culinary offerings and vast selection of wines.
