Or perhaps a more hands-on approach is what you are after, and an urban foraging adventure and cooking class with a celebrity chef is more your thing.
The Oyster Box
After exploring the very best of the Cape Kingdom it is time to take on the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and treat your senses to a luxurious experience at the Oyster Box Hotel on the Kwa-Zulu Natal coast. Durban, famed for its strong Indian influence, allows visitors the opportunity to learn a little more about the spices associated with Indian Cuisine and to try your hand at mastering the techniques to a perfect curry. Afterwards unwind with a local Durban Ale and watch the changing colours of the Indian Ocean as the sun slips slowly away behind you.
Phinda Rock Lodge
After a few days of exploring this coastal playground, a short journey will take you to the ultimate in peace and solitude – Africa’s famed safari experience at Phinda Rock Lodge. Not only will your taste buds be spoilt with the very best of African safari fair in this unique setting, but you will be completely wowed by your life-changing encounters with Africa’s wildlife.
Wrap up your African foodie experience with a safari in the heartland of South Africa at Tswalu Kalahari, South Africa’s largest private game reserve. Travel in a group and book in to the secluded homestead that is Tarkuni, or opt for the exclusive Motse, and enjoy your own private deck and open fireplace. Whilst here you will be welcomed to experience the very best epicurean, wellness and safari experiences available.
