Description Celebrated Winelands chef, Matthew Gordon, recognized event catering expert Duncan Doherty and baker extraordinaire Jean Pierre Smith, promise an intriguing and fulfilling gastronomic experience. With a vision to create a really world-class country restaurant and deli experience, complementing the excellent Vrede en Lust wines with light, sophisticated and delicious cuisine. The emphasis is on healthy food made with the freshest ingredients. A bakery and a deli stocked with local and specialty cheeses, olives and cured meats serves the restaurant and offer clients the chance to buy fresh country goods for their own kitchens. The restaurant is a full-time venue catering for up to 160 diners. The new layout allows for private areas that may suit conferences or tour groups. Intimate evening functions for up to 70 guests at Cotage Fromage complement our new Vineyard Terrace venue, which caters for larger events. The restaurant has been redesigned in keeping with the rustic, country feel of the original thatch and its historic roots. A new, wraparound, wind-protected veranda makes the most of the magnificent setting and views. Cotage Fromage is the ideal stop for breakfast or a leisurely lunch in the heart of the Winelands. Visitors can taste and buy some of Vrede en Lust's award-winning wines, play a game of Petanque or Boules on the two competition sized courts, go for a peaceful stroll among the vineyards or a more energetic bike ride up into the forests to take in the spectacular view of the Franschhoek Valley.

Kruger Park - Shimuwini ( Website)
Shimuwini is a Shangaan word for "Place of the Baobab Tree". The camp is so named because the nearby Letaba River which fronts the cottages, is lined with these huge trees, one of them estimated to be between 2 000 and 3 000 years old. Shimuwini Bushveld Camp is the most modern of the bushveld camps, being completely rebuilt after the floods in 2000.
