We don’t know about you, but here at The Daily Meal we always like to hop on a horse and explore a valley before a five-course meal, which is exactly what you will do if you go on a deluxe nine-day safari to South Africa before visiting Le Quartier’s Tasting Room. And that’s only one evening. The rest of the time you will travel to unbelievable wineries, taste cheeses, and stare at lions. 

"We loved the personal attention we got at each of the properties," said one customer of Extraordinary Journeys. "It is all about getting the best service and feeling you are getting special treatments at each stop. Everyone went out of the way to figure out what we liked and offer us experiences just for us."

Guests stay in Singita Ebony, which is an extremely wine-friendly safari lodge, where they can drive around and see the local fauna of Sabi Sands Game Reserve, ranging from bathing hippos and leopards to the more exotic galagos (bushbabies). 

Epicurean itineraries are quite literally taking over the world, and this one explores Cloete Cellar, Haute Cabriere, and Delaire Graff as well as Franschhoek Valley.

Added another customer, "I also love the mix of traditional and modern. Cellars Hohernort is very traditional while Le Quartier is more cutting-edge."

"Safari" is Swahili for "journey," and as you travel through South Africa, your trip won't just be about animals, but about hunting for some of the best wines in the world.
