The Great Plains Collective – Issue 15

2021GP Collective Issue15

Food! Glorious Food!  

We hope you enjoy this edition of the Collective which culminates all our favourite restaurants across 6 cities and towns in Southern and East Africa. There is something for everyone on our recommended restaurant lists. The chosen establishments are all unique in their own way, whether it be the location, the Chef, the view, the vibe, or the story, they all have one thing in common: a memorable epicurean experience.
Buon Appetito! 

There is something new and delicious to discover at every turn in Cape Town, South Africa. In fact, this list could probably be much longer.
We have opted to choose a few tried and tested options and look forward to updating you in the next edition about other special epicurean discoveries as we eat our way through Cape Town.

2021GP Collective Issue15 InsideScoop

I recently had the opportunity to enjoy a delicious high tea with some of our industry friends. The experience was so enjoyable that I felt it should be shared far and wide. Just Teddy is a small pâtisserie in the designer shopping centre Hyde Park, Johannesburg and we highly recommend that our guests take the opportunity to indulge in the lavish experience of their three-tiered High Tea when shopping at Hyde Park. Just Teddy has redefined heritage haute cuisine, curating a fashion-inspired fusion of Parisian flair mixed with Middle Eastern flavour.

Hyde Park Corner, a luxurious shopping experience for guests that are visiting or overnighting in Johannesburg was recently voted as the ” Best Shopping Centre” by Best of Joburg Readers’ Choice Awards 2022.
Hyde Park Corner is open Monday to Saturday 9am-6pm, Sundays and Public Holidays 10am-3pm.

Please contact our Safari Designers for any information on our preferred partners in this Collective edition.

Keeping the dream alive,
