South Africa’s cultural influences from Africa, the Far East and Europe make the Rainbow Nation one of the most fascinating gastronomic destinations worldwide. Foodies have their pick from an endless supply of five-star establishments for fine dining, European-style bistros and more vivacious traditional eateries.
Taste a smorgasbord of South African flavours, from Dutch and Cape Malay dishes to a traditional barbeque (“braai”) of locally sourced meats, or sample European haute cuisine prepared with a South African accent at award-winning restaurants nestled between mountain and ocean. The more adventurous can take a Cape Malay cooking class in the Bo-Kaap or enjoy a scenic helicopter ride which ends in lunch at Franschhoek’s prestigious Grand Provence.
