Gold Restaurant

Pack a suitcase of energy for a taste-safari that will transport you from Table Mountain to Timbuktu. A night you will battle to forget. Their 14-course Cape Malay and African menu is accompanied by unique interactive traditional entertainment. Tamsin's journey with GOLD Restaurant began when they first opened their doors at the Gold Museum in Strand Street in 2007. A decade later, their incredible new home is 15 Bennet Street in Green Point and sees international guests flocking for a truly African culinary adventure.


Tswalu Kalahari

South Africa's largest private game reserve, protecting over 110 000 hecatares of spectacular grasslands and mountains. The team begin Tswalu hold conservation as their number one priority with a vision to restore the Kalahari to itself. No more than 30 guests at a time get to discover the beautiful of this arid savannah, its diverse wildlife and the serenity of what may well be South Africa's last great wilderness.

Two camps, The Motse and Tarkuni, offer super luxurious secluded suites with private decks, pools and open fireplaces.

It has been an honour to work with Executive Chef, Mandi Hough and her kitchen brigade, offering discerning guests tailor-made menu's to suite their every food fantasy. Together, we had an awesome journey taking bush dining to a new, crazy creative level of culinary magic. New executive chef, Alewyn Malan, not heads up the kitchen, so watch this space!


Clay Café

Tucked into the Hout Bay valley, along the banks of the Disa River, Clay Café is certainly the place to play for big bodies and little bodies alike. Visitors get to select from a large array of unfired bisque (pottery pieces), a wide variety of paint colours and tools to create their own personal, totally unique crockery. A fun, all-day dining clipboard menu features favourites like poached eggs on roasted sweet potato, crispy bacon and topped with Hollandaise sauce. Seasonally salads, rustic pizzas, jam-packed wraps, handmade pasta, beastly burgers and homemade sweet treats and bakes come out of the oven all day long. Not to mention . . . the best coffee in Hout Bay.

On the banks of the Mogalakwena River, in the Limpopo valley, 20km from the border of Bostwana and 80km from Mapungubwe World Heritage site, Mogalakwena River Lodge welcomes visitors from all over the world to discover the soul of Africa. Luxurious thatched chalets with exquisite views across the river. Here you'll find a local team of hard-working chefs in the kitchen preparing sumptuous meals inspired by local cuisine and seasonal herb and veggie crops from their bush gardens.
