Food & Wine

One of the many pleasures of going away on holiday is the food you are going to sample, the food you don’t have to cook and the time to try different tastes. Wining and dining on holiday enhances your sense of relaxation as you treat your palate to its own vacation from your style of cooking and eating. We at Journey in Style love the variety of foods and wine that you can try on holiday in Africa. Take a look at these few destinations to whet your appetite:
The incredible beauty of the Maldives is even more spectacular at the newly renovated Mirihi Island Resort.  You simply have to start with the Ruhgandu Wine Bar which showcases some of the 300 best wines and champagnes globally. If you love rum, then head for the Anba Bar which happens to boast the largest and most wide-ranging collection of fine Rum in the Maldives! Drinks aside, what about some good cooking?
Check out the Dhonveli traditional buffet restaurant with its clever sandy beach floor and extravagant choice of food. Sit on the veranda at sunset and sample delicious seafood, meats and other local dishes at Muraka restaurant.
Make sure you Journey in Style to Mozambique, another fantastic island destination. We recommend Azura Benguerra Lodge for something special and very romantic. Your faithful Mozambican host will set up your romantic dinner for 2 on the edge of the island, or you can choose to eat a full breakfast at a decked table on the shore where your toes get pleasantly wet. At Azura Benguerra, you can also experience the champagne cruise at sunset.
Your holiday takes off with a daily cocktail in your beachfront sala, drinks in the star bar every evening and sumptuous dinners in the wine cellar for real dining privacy and pleasure.  Your dining experience at Azura is part of your holiday here in paradise so tuck into fresh produce and seafood, homemade bread and baked dishes. Take a picnic to the beach after a day filled with outdoor activities. Settle under the starry skies at night for candlelit beach dinners and unique Mozambican flavours.
Back in sunny South Africa, your stylish journey moves on to Knysna Hollow on the Eastern Cape’s picturesque Garden Route. Picture a gracious old manor house still retaining its original pressed ceilings, yellowwood floors and home-grown furniture. The best part about staying at the Knysna Hollow is its Restaurant where you sample fine cooking daily, three times a day!
Taste foods from countries around the world and concentrate on the South African specialities such as Karoo lamb, venison and rich Afrikaans desserts. Cape Crayfish and other fresh seafood are a delight to your palate. Start and end your evenings in the Rutland Arms, the lodge’s pub with stunning yellowwood panels and a great ambience – sip Cape wines and meet fellow food and wine lovers.
A holiday at a safari lodge is part of your search for the perfect break in Africa. Journey in Style to Singita Boulders Lodge near the Kruger National Park for an experience in wildlife viewing and fine food and wine. See how the wine cellar has been built around a huge boulder from whence the lodge takes its name!  You won’t be able to get enough of the fresh venison and other great South African traditional meals here – especially after night game drives when you get back to your suite hungry and excited about what you have seen. Sip great wines and enjoy other guests around a roaring log fire.
