The Write-up for adults:
South Africa isn’t just a feast for the eyes, it’s a feast for the mind and senses. Take in the breathtaking scenery of the world famous Cape whilst experiencing Afrikaans culture in all its flavoured glory. Feast on traditional South African dishes, while learning how to cook them. From curry and rice, to “boboti” and “braai”, finished off with some sweet “souskluitjies” or even a koeksister and some “boeretroos” or tea – don’t worry, you’ll find out what all these are in glorious tasty time.
Pick from a wide range of guided tours, drenched in history and intrigue. Learn not just about the geographical anomalies of the country, but also how the demography has shaped and steered its vivid history. Take in the beauty of Cape Town from the top of Table Mountain as you survey the surrounding areas, learning how each is made unique by the diverse people that populate them. Wander through the lush winelands as you broaden your mind with stories of the farming culture and ethic that still forms the backbone of the Rainbow Nation.
Take in the smiles, the “howzits” and the “lekker” – all the terms the locals will be all too happy to teach you, giving you the conversational upper hand at the next social event you’ll find yourself attending.
Seeing this side of South Africa isn’t just an air-conditioned tour bus, it’s a hands on immersion in culture and flavor.
Francois and Mimmie du Toit welcome you to an unforgettable holiday treated with the hospitality which only South Africans can offer.
