A weekend that was - A Sho't Left on the Knorr Flavour Tour

12:28 pm

The weekend started at the 5 star Moloko hotel in Sandton. Invited by the South African Tourism for the first evening of the Knorr Flavour Tour because - nothing’s better than a shotleft.
The purpose of this whole tour is to showcase how food incorporates into travel.
The Knorr Flavour tour is a road trip starting in Johannesburg to Durban with stops in Harrismith and the Drankensburg to showcase South Africa as a culinary holiday destination.
After the 6 course dinner we spend the night at the Moloko hotel.

The Chef outdid himself.
Wake up in the morning, get into our bus and head out to Vilakazi Street in Soweto to have breakfast at the Thrive Restaurant. The breakfast is followed by a township tour of Soweto visiting places such as the Hector Peterson Museum, driving past Desmond Tutu’s house as well as Nelson Mandela’s house which is now a museum.
Hector Petersen Memorial in Soweto.
When done with the township tour we went on a scenic drive to Van Reenen for lunch at the Green Lantern Inn. Van Reenen is the little Dorpie (Town) with a personality.
The Small Town with a personality.

After lunch we continued with our scenic drive to the Drakensberg. Dinner and spending the evening at the Didima Resort, Cathedral Peak and then spending the night at the Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife – Didima Camp.
Saturday, Day 2 – We had breakfast then head to our first exciting activity of the day. Helicopter flips over the Drankensburg mountain range – I know, even i envy my life sometimes.
We will then go on a scenic drive to Durban and have lunch at the Goundens Indian Restaurant. What would a Durban visit be without having authentic Indian curry? You would be doing it all wrong really.

The late afternoon started off checking into the Four Star Southern Sun Elangeni Hotel. My 18th floor room with the ocean view so breathtaking. The little time we had after checking in before dinner, I ran to the beach to dip my feet. Only makes sense right? Of course. Dinner at the Cargo Hold Restaurant on the Promenade at the uShaka Marine World. This experience they call “Dinner with the Sharks” yes, you have sharks as dinner companions. I am happy to report we were not dinner to the sharks but sharks did watch us indulge in some delicious culinary experiences prepared with Knorr Salad dressings.

Day 3, The last day of our amazing tour starts like this –Breakfast at the Southern Sun Elangeni hotel then we off to the Moses Mabhida stadium to do sky car. The sky car goes all the way to the top of the stadium and gives you the chance to see a 360degree view of the city as well as the ocean. This is the best view of Durban No doubt.

Unfortunately I couldn’t swing down into the field as there was a conference, as much as the idea of swinging into a congregation in the stadium excited me, I had to pull myself towards myself and settle for the Sky Car.
Lunch was at the One and Only Shisanyama  at the Kwamashu township. A township lunch to end what has been an amazing Sho’t Left of Mzantsi.
