Grangehurst Winery is a lovely place. We instantly fell in love with the rural setting right between Somerset West and Stellenbosch, Cape Winelands, Western Cape, South Africa, in front of the magnificent backdrop of the majestic Helderberg Mountain.

What is best to do on a hot summer day in the Cape Winelands? Go to Viljoensdrift in Robertson and enjoy a relaxing boat cruise on the Breede River with wine and a picnic! We tried it this February, and we really enjoyed it!

Mostly game drives are very peaceful. You see young elephants playing on the road next to your car, an elegant giraffe slowly eating some leafs of a thorny bush, and maybe a funny family of warthogs walking along with you. But sometimes you observe more thrilling action, a lion kill - the brutal part of nature, but a big part of it. And when you see it like we did, you maybe also would get an unpleasant feeling…

A few years ago, on Saturday, the 3rd of April, the 41st (!) Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon took place in Cape Town. It had rained the night before, so the weather was pretty good for running.

The Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden does not only show thousands of flowers and plants, but hosts also a variety of musicians - local and international stars you can listen to while you're sitting on the lawn, having a nice picnic. When we stayed in Cape Town as FIFA-Volunteers during the World Cup 2010 we had the great chance to enjoy Sir Elton John in this beautiful setting!

We have been travelling to South Africa since 2003, and each time we visit our favorite restaurant, the Aubergine Restaurant in Cape Town. Back home in Germany it was great to hear that renowned chef Harald Bresselschmidt would come to the Black Forest, Germany, for a South Africa dinner event. For us a good opportunity for a nice weekend excursion.
