Five Must-Eats in South Africa

“If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.”

J.R.R. Tolkien

Make sure on your next trip to South Africa you make the most of it by snacking on all 5 of the below treats:

1.Venison in the bushveld

Safaris are not only an incredible adventure for the whole family but they also will no doubt surprise you with some unforgettable feasts. South Africa is well known for its incredible meat and more specifically its venison (game meat) is the best in the world. It is not only unique in taste but its healthy too.


2. Cape Malay Cuisine

The local Cape Malay cuisine is as colourful as the rainbow nation itself and never ceases to delight. The slightly sweeter curries, boboties and even deep fried koeksisters will wow your taste buds and have you begging for more.


3. Wine in the Winelands

Need we say more? The Cape Winelands is by all means sensory overload. Not only is it breathtakingly beautiful, the food decadent and delicious but the wine to die for. The Cape wine route is in fact one of the longest and most popular in the world.


4. Biltong

Biltong and droëwors are two unique savoury meat treats that are now not only famous in South Africa but most definitely beyond its borders too. Make sure you have some on you at sunset, it goes perfectly with both beers and G’s and T’s. The best sundowner snack possible.


5. Seafood

The Cape is home to a wide variety of seafood: lobster, yellow tail, calamari prawns, you name it… we have it… and lots of it! Sit along the beachfront with fresh line-fish and an ice-cold glass of Sauvignon Blanc and your life will be complete.
