South Africa Food & Wine Holiday

It was Luciano Pavarotti who wrote: “One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating”. We couldn’t agree more, especially when it comes to our selection of food and wine holidays – each of which takes this simple pleasure to decadent new heights.

It should come as no surprise that most of our food and wine holidays centre around the Cape Winelands. Basking in Mediterranean-style sunshine, the grand estates of the Winelands have long produced world-class wines. What’s more, these vineyard-clad valleys are home to many of the country’s top restaurants; try ‘The Tasting Room’ at Le Quartier Francais in South Africa’s culinary capital Franschhoek and, closer to Cape Town, internationally renowned ‘La Colombe’ at Constantia Uitsig.

But good food and wine is not restricted to the Winelands alone. Combine a culinary getaway with Big 5 game viewing on one of our Kruger luxury safaris. Set in game-rich private reserves, Kruger’s top safari lodges are known as much for their innovative cuisine and luxurious accommodation as for their thrilling wildlife sightings. As for the wine, you simply can’t do better than the Singita lodges where wine lists average over 180 wines – a staggering choice made less daunting by Singita’s experienced sommeliers.

Fine cuisine goes hand in hand with superlative service and beautiful locations – and our recommended food and wine accommodation guarantee all three. Simply browse our most popular tours and holidays or chat to one of our Africa Safari Experts and they’ll put together a one-of-a-kind food and wine holiday taking in South Africa’s top locations in true taste and style.

Mountain gorillas are critically endangered and are found in only a few locations in Rwanda and Uganda.

The Ol Donyo region is home to a number of elephants, including some with rather impressive tusks. The local Samburu are always willing to share their knowledge and expertise while out on a safari walk. The Samburu offers some of the most spectacular natural settings in Kenya. A group of young Samburu warriors join together in dance and song. While lionesses normally do much of the hunting, you will see the bachelor males pull down game on their own.
