Sunset Catamaran Cruise and Dinner | There's no lack of boat cruises at the V&A Waterfront, but if you're looking for a special sailing experience that exudes class and sophistication, we love this sunset cruise with dinner included! The famous Cape Town sunset is best seen from the water, so take a front-row seat and enjoy the stunning spectacle, before heading back to the Waterfront for a gourmet dinner at one of the city's most famous waterside restaurants; Maresol. A fantastic experience gift that lasts a whole evening, perfect for a fun date idea!
Vegan Pop-Up Dinner Experience | Veganism has exploded onto the scene in recent years, with foodies trying to move away from unsustainable eating habits and towards environmentally-friendly, healthy alternatives. If you're curious about vegan food but don't know where to begin, this pop-up dinner experience in Cape Town is a fantastic start. Join a friendly couple in their home for a dinner party shared by fellow food fanatics, travellers and locals, enjoying a four course vegan feast at their communal table. You may arrive not knowing what's in store, but you'll leave with amazing recipe ideas and friends for life!
Elgin Valley Wine Tour with Lunch | Elgin Valley is famous for its cool-climate wines, producing fantastic Sauvignon Blancs and Chardonnays that are known around the world. What a lot of people don't know, however, is that Elgin also produces over half of the country's apple exports, making it a great destination for food and cider fans too! This full day tour includes all transportation, wine tasting, olive and olive oil tasting, coffee and rusks, a delicious lunch of seasonal foods, and a visit to a cider farm. An all round great day out that makes the ultimate gift for wine and food lovers!
