Itinerary

Explore South Africa's Western Cape and the many culinary pit stops along the way. From Paternoster to Cape Town and The Winelands, you can experience arguably some of the best food and wine in the world.

  1. Fly to Cape Town

  2. Days 1-3: Cape Town & the Western Cape

    On arrival into Cape Town International Airport, collect your hire car and drive about 2-hours to the small fishing village of Paternoster. On the way stop for lunch at Hilda's Kitchen, which is set under the trees next to a Cape Dutch farmhouse and test out the old school Cape lunch.

    Strandloper is a delightful small boutique and stylish hotel in the small fishing village of Paternoster on the west coast. The village has been discovered by some savvy Capetonians, so it has had a gentle facelift but nothing to take away from the charm of the white washed fisherman's cottages. Paternoster has become renowned for its excellent fresh mussels and sea food.

     

    Accommodation: Strandloper Ocean Lodge (2 nights)

  3. Days 3-5: The Winelands

    The drive east to the Cape's Winelands, famous for their fine wines, cellar door tastings and vineyard restaurants - run by chefs who have now an international reputation. From Bread and Wine to Reuben's, Overture and Babel at Babylonstoren you will be spoiled for choice. Stay at Babylonstoren, a working farm, in one of their delightful cottages, built on the site of the old farm workers' cottages. When you will arrive there will be a box of organic fruit and vegetables waiting for you so if you are feeling inspired you can rustle something up. Alternatively dine at Babel where the chef will transform the daily harvest from the farm at Babylonstoren and other locally sourced ingredients.

    Accommodation: Babylonstoren (2 nights)

  4. Days 5-8: Cape Town & the Western Cape

    Next stop is Cape Town, the foodie capital of South Africa. Stay at The Cellars Hohenort in the heart of exclusive Constantia. The Cellars has two fabulous restaurants, the renowned Greenhouse and The Conservatory. Relax here or enjoy the spa. Alternatively use the hotel as a base to explore this wonderful city and its many excellent restaurants and bars.

    This is just a suggested itinerary, some of our guests do a similar route and can easily be combined with time relaxing on the beach in Mozambique, The Seychelles or Mauritius or safari in the many game rich areas of South Africa. All our itineraries are completely customized so can be designed totally round your own interests.

    Accommodation: The Cellars Hohenort (3 nights)
