South Africa Luxury Travel

A Taste of the Western Cape

The Western Cape abounds with fabulous food and wine. We’ll trace the history of viniculture as we visit some of the foremost wine estates in the Constantia Valley and we’ll have you tasting and pronouncing dishes like Bobotie and Potjiekos as we eat our way through the city. Come celebrate the country’s rich culture and taste the natural bounty of seafood, meat, game and wine on our South Africa luxury travel experience. We’ll explore the area by foot or bike—or, our van is never far behind. On this private adventure it’s all up to you.

Trip Details



We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.


These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.



“I can’t say I really ‘work out,’ but I’m in good shape and am relatively active.”


“I enjoy a good walk or ride, and feel comfortable while on the move.”


“I get moving at least once a week, and don’t mind a little sweat.”


“I get moving a few times per week and enjoy some exertion.”


“I want to feel invigorated each day and going hard is how I like to do that.”
