The perfect pair: Food & Travel

If you are looking for something exciting to do for the upcoming festive season, then consider arranging travel that involves food, especially since food embodies the culture of the place you are travelling to.

Because food is different in every corner of the globe, and even in different areas of your own province, travelling an hour from home could land you in an area brimming with a variety of different cuisine cultures.


Only an hour and a half from Durban lies the KwaZulu Natal Midlands – a true gem in its own right.

Start your journey with a stop at the Mandela Capture Site, visit the quirky shops and restaurant at Piggly Wiggly, try the wines at the Meander Fine Wines, or purchase some beautifully crafted pieces at Hillfold Pottery. If you enjoy cheese, then a trip to Swissland Cheese is a must, before making you stop at the gorgeous Granny Mouse Country House & Spa, which offers award-winning gourmet cuisine worth every bite, as well as an array of culinary experiences sure to be the perfect addition to your journey. You are also able to maximise on the experience by indulging in a treatment at the onsite spa, or stay over in one of their luxurious rooms or suites.

Also on offer, if you want to try something new, is macaroon and wine tasting, brandy and chocolate tasting, and more, that is sure to add some excitement to your journey.

So whether you choose to “eat well and travel often”, “taste your way around the world”, or if travelling is food for your soul, make sure to make the most of your new experiences and visit places you would least expect to.

Tip: whilst on your travels, why not shop for food items you can bring home with you, and allow the experience to last a little longer.
