The Flying Gourmet visits South Africa's Cape Wine Country

Be sure to sample the nation's award winning wines during your stay. South Africa's vintages are among the world's best. Some specialties include lovely Chardonnays, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Cinsault, Riesling, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, Caberbet Sauvignon and Pinotage varietals. You will find that one of the most pleasant ways to enjoy South African wine is on a visit to the scenic wineland of the Western Cape. Few places in the world are as stunning as these lush valleys. Towering mountains are a dramatic backdrop for the rows of grapevines and giant oaks. (continued)

Shopping in Cape Town and Area. With the current exchange rate of 8 Rand to 1$ US it is a good time for visitors to go on a shopping spree while enjoying the attractions of Cape Town and area.

This is underscored by the fact that not one of South Africa's major languages is spoken by a majority of all the people. (continued)

Experience a South African Working Holiday. The future of conservation in South Africa depends on obtaining a means of funding for Private Nature Reserves and Wildlife Rehabilitation Centers. The amount of funding made available to projects such as erosion control, invader plant control and fire control will make a large difference in the scale of conservation in the future. Now there is a solution. (continued)

Dining in the Sky. Passengers using South African Airways' newly opened First Class Lounge at Johannesburg International Airport can expect a culinary experience worthy of this sophisticated haven.
