Foodie Tours

South Africans are passionate about food and wine, and Cape Town has become one of the gastro capitals of the world.  So if good eating and drinking is your ‘thing’, book onto one of our private tours and indulge yourself.


When it comes to plonk, the Winelands region is the South Africa’s headline-grabbing, go-to destination.  If you’re short of time or keen on luxury, sign up for a helicopter tour and enjoy Constantia’s finest cellar tours and tastings. 


Back in Cape Town itself, our half-day foodie walking tour promises lots of African soul food, including falooda, a traditional Muslim rose milkshake, and bobotie pies, a modern take on the Cape Malay and Afrikaner traditional dish.


Or you could do play chef yourself, learning how to make some Rainbow Nation classics and more contemporary fare.  The African Cooking Experience takes place in Langa township at a culinary school which doubles as a shipping-container restaurant.


The Best of South Africa Travel map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.
