This “foodie” adventure begins deep in the African bushveld, where only the freshest of ingredients are found. At the Royal Malewane, Ker & Downey guests will enjoy the culinary genius of Grand Chef John Jackson in a romantic Bedouin style tent, tasting the exquisite cuisine specially prepared along with hand picked wines.

From the romantic setting of the intimate Royal Malewane, its off to the hands-on culinary experience at African Relish. Here you will spend time becoming familiar with the Karoo cuisine experience while staying in beautifully renovated, original village cottages. Learn from hands on cooking demonstrations and authentic Karoo traditions, then taste your creations!

Your next stop is Le Quartier Francais. Here your taste buds will enjoy the gastronomy of Chef Margot Janse. You will try Margot’s eight course Gourmand, and then a full day’s tour of the local Glen Wood and Moreson wineries, where you will journey through South African wine and meats, complete with a stop at Huguenot Chocolates for pairings and tastings.

Your last stop will be in coastal Cape Town, for a three night stay at the luxurious One&Only Cape Town. Begin with a Cape Malay Cooking Safari, gathering local ingredients for a hands on cooking luncheon. Then enjoy a Cape Peninsula tour, the V&A Waterfront, and a gourmet dinner in a private South African home, arranged exclusively by Ker & Downey.
