South Africa's credentials as a safari and adventure travel destination are well established but its vibrant and diverse culinary scene is often overlooked. With influences ranging from culinary big hitters such as France, India and Asia, South Africa's moniker of "The Rainbow Nation" extends all the way to its diverse food and wine scene. There is more to South Africa than the big five, braais and pinotage although they make for a great place to start. This adventure touring itinerary picks its way along South Africa's stunning Garden Route and allows for ample insight into the nation's culinary scene while balancing any overindulgence with opportunities to expend those excess calories gained along the way. From fine dining in some of South Africa's premier locations to hearty and rustic farm prepared meals, and experiences ranging from the thrill of a wildlife safari, a gentle cycle among the vines and leg shaking ascent of Table Mountain, this trip provides a well rounded encounter with this fascinating country.
