Welcome to our last official chat for 2019. As the year draws to a close it is only natural to do some reflecting on the events of the year that has just rushed past! It is important to acknowledge the people and companies who contributed to our successes.
Tourism remains a strong and resilient industry in South Africa. Cape Town seems to be getting it right with growth being stimulated in the cruise industry and direct air access confirmed by United Airlines between Cape Town and New York. Cape Town was voted the favourite city in the world and South Africa the third-favourite country in the Telegraph newspaper’s annual travel awards, based on what it calls the most comprehensive, wide-ranging and reliable travel survey in Britain.
It’s so easy to fall in love with South Africa - it has all the ingredients of that perfect holiday; pristine beaches framed by lush mountain scenery, an abundance of culture, world-class wine, a selection of restaurants to please the most experienced foodie, and, of course, the star attraction - a spectacle of nature and wildlife.
With the Summer holidays looming we dedicate this section to some new and happy additions for the Festive Season.

Cape Fynbos Gin & Citrus Edition
The Cape Floral Kingdom, approximately the size of Portugal, stretches from Cape Point. The majority of the 9,000 species found in this area are members of the fynbos group and many of these are flowering plants. 70% of these flowering plants are found nowhere else on earth. Truly "coral on land", just as rare, delicate and exquisite.
30 of the botanicals used in the gin are indigenous fynbos species (sustainably harvested), many with a long history of use by the Khoi San people.
Also view the beautifully packaged set with Buchu and Rose Geranium cordials, a gift sure to be well received! A perfect sun-downer to end off a hot Summer's day!

Food from the heart
This is a treasure of authentic dishes from all over South Africa. It takes the cooking enthusiast on a quest for flavours that will remind you of grandma’s kitchen, almost-forgotten ingredients and that unfathomable element that binds everything together: nostalgia
Whilst we are all focused on ending 2019 on a high note, we also continue with our planning for 2020. Keep an eye out for our next blog that will be featuring the 2020 events calendar and planning for those all-important trips and gifts. May this holiday season be filled with laughter, joy, and peace.
