...travelers get to enjoy South Africa’s natural splendor, wild creatures, and diverse cultures, as well as its amazing restaurants, food producers, and vineyards.
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) February 15, 2012
When Stormy and Will met 15 years ago, they knew they both loved to travel and eat great food. What they didn’t realize was that they would one day each own a business dedicated to these things and that those businesses would partner to offer culinary tours.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer - as well as to join fellow travelers - on this tour,” said Will Swanepoel, owner of the Extraordinary Life Travel. “I grew up in South Africa and love traveling the Garden Route and Route 62 whenever I can. The great thing about this tour is that travelers get to enjoy South Africa’s natural splendor, wild creatures, and diverse cultures, as well as its amazing restaurants, food producers, and vineyards.“
When asked about the food in South Africa, Stormy Sweitzer, owner of Maoomba says, “Where do I start? You’ll taste everything from ostrich carpaccio, Cape Malay cuisine, wild game, and melt-in-your-mouth grilled calamari to delicious home-grown olives, artisanal cheese, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and, of course, the wine. I have traveled to South Africa numerous times over the years, and I am always impressed by how fresh-tasting it is.”
She also adds that, “As someone with food allergies, I find that I am able to eat extremely well there because nearly all of the restaurants we visit know exactly what goes into the food they serve. In fact, many of them grow produce themselves and source foods from area farmers and fishermen. “
