Celebrating Cape Culture
Upon docking in the Cape Town harbour, ancient mariners would blast their horns to announce their arrival – a sound that could be heard as far as the Paarl mountains. This call signalled the incoming of ships, inviting farmers from surrounding areas to mount their horse carts to go collect and trade. This gathering of diverse artisans is what we channel through our destination today – a collection of flavours and a celebration of Cape cultures.
Every artisan invited to be part of the Spice Route Destination community is handpicked and different. From chocolate making, beer brewing and glass blowing to a selection of tastes from all corners of South Africa, the shared goal is to bring a unique strength and art to the whole collective while supporting each other’s individual trade.
To explore is to find the new through travel. There is so much to see and do at our destination, and our vision is to encourage you to traverse the farm and experience your very own sensory journey of discovery, giving you the space and time to begin and end how you like.
From the bright colours and cobbled alleyways of the Bo-Kaap to the historic Cape Dutch manor houses of the Cape winelands, the Spice Route Destination is a reflection of South Africa’s multicultural fusion. Every element celebrates our mixed culture, colourful stories and heritage offering an eclectic but curated experience.
