The lot is for four friends for four days, all experiences and meals included, as well as transfers to and from the airport (flights excluded).

De Grendel Wines, established in 1720 is one of themost iconic wine farms in Cape Town, South Africa. A rich history in both the farm and the owners make for an amazing journey through the history of South Africa. Today De Grendel is well-known not only for their fine wines, but also their fine dining restaurant, and even more importable, the ground breaking work in social development. De Grendel is actively involved with the Wine and Agricultural Ethical Trading Association, the Montrose Foundation and the Waitrose Foundation – all aimed at uplifting the community. The award winning De Grendel wines by Charles Hopkins are well-known throughout the world, having won several awards, including a haul of 18 awards at the prestigious Veritas awards in 2017.

Nitida Farms is the perfect counter-foil to the story of De Grendel, being the young upstart of the bunch. Bernhard Veller purchased Nitida in 1990 with the intention of doing some relaxing and perhaps some farming. One 1971 Ford tractor and a sense of adventure, and suddenly the 50 sheep and two cows turned into one of the top boutique wine farms in South Africa, and a leader in the field of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon wines. Nitida has won many awards and now hosts two magnificent restaurants on the premises, all designed to maximise your wine tasting experience or to just relax by the pond and have a world class meal. Best known for their Sauvignon Blanc, Nitida has been building its reputation on the wines produced by wine maker Daniel Kuelder, winning many awards since 1995.

Shannon Elizabeth, an American actress, became aware of the plight of the rhinos in Africa in 2001 when she started Animal Avengers, a non-profit organisation geared towards making a difference. From humble beginnings, based on a passion for animal rights and conservation, the Animal Avengers quickly evolved into a much larger programme, to the extent that Elizabeth relocated to Cape Town in 2016 to start the Shannon Elizabeth Foundation with a view to working on the larger, global issues facing Africa’s rich history. The Foundation currently works with the International Fund for Animal Welfare, the African Wildlife Foundation, the Peace Parks Foundation and the Global Wildlife Conservation, amongst others. It also publishes the Wildlife Review Initiative with renowned Peter Borchert. Elizabeth is passionate about Africa and its heritage and is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the conservation fraternity.
