Art In Voyage takes you Beyond Travel on this South Africa Culinary journey to the south Hemisphere. Did you know the country boasts one of the best cuisine, and wines, in the world? On this culinary journey, both our Executive Chef Kevin Fonzo and our Wine Expert Katie Barratt take you on a feast of the senses.
In Cape Town, we have put together a balanced program of culture, history and culinary delights. Located half-way between Europe and India, Cape Town has a long history of trading spices from the far east. As a result, incredible culinary creations and traditions ensued.
We will introduce you to local traditional markets and chefs. Coming from all over the world, many have made Cape Town their home. As a result, they bring their own flavors and interpretations to the table, for your pleasure. In the winelands, you will discover a wine industry to be reckoned with. South African has some of the oldest estates in the world, many starting production in 1659. Surrounded by stunning mountain ranges and housed in traditional Dutch colonial farms, wineries offer connoisseurs incredible palate experiences.
Our journey continues through the garden route and the coastal towns of Knysna and Plettenberg Bay. There, a cooler climate prevails. This translates into fantastic sea food and stunning white ones.
We conclude this epic experience in Kruger National Park where the wildlife roams freely over land covering the same surface area as Belgium. There, we offer you to hit crescendo with a unique Glamping experience, complete with two game drives a day and three incredible meals a day. We will introduce you to some of the most memorable sundowners just before enjoying game-meat culinary feasts in the bush.
On this South Africa Culinary journey, be ready for your palates to experience the other side of Africa.

A Country of Contrasts
But what else do you call a place where you could happily slalom between penguins waddling on the Cape and lions stalking the bushveld, cinematic coastal switchbacks and burnt Kalahari sand, the oldest wine industry outside Europe and cutting edge fusion cuisine?
Cape Town, always first!
You really can’t overstate the case for visiting Cape Town. First, there’s the in-your-face beauty of a craggy mountain range that drops precipitously into a glittering sea, its flanks carpeted in green. Then there’s the pristine white beaches lapped by – it must be said – a chilly Atlantic, their curves defined by giant granite boulders to bake on, and burbling mountain streams in dappled forests.
The Big Five of course
That's lion, elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard and rhino, in case you weren't sure. And then there's hippo, giraffe, wildebeest, zebra, meerkats, wild dogs, kudu, hyena and ostrich. All free-roaming in one national park, where luxury tenting awaits!
And then there is the wine!
There are more than 200 cellars in Constantia, Stellenbosch and Franschhoek, all part of the Winelands region (15-45 minutes away from Cape Town). There, you can also explore art galleries, sip more wine and sample local dishes in gracious Cape Dutch estates
