Around the World in South Africa

I've recently discovered some 'out of this world' places that make you feel as though you've been transported to another country. No need to hop on a plane - we've got the whole world in our very own back yard!

Stellenbosch - Blouberg - Durban - Jo'burg

Ever wanted to eat a traditional African buffet dinner in the tree tops? Moyo is unlike any place I've ever been to. It's truly an experience that you'll remember for a long time to come. At R250 per person, I can guarentee it's worth every penny. Whether your sitting at the top of a tree eating by candlelight, enjoying a romantic dinner for two in a private tent, or enjoying the African dancers and drummers in the centre of the restaurant - you are literally spoilt for choice. You soon forget where you are, and feel as though you're in the middle of an amazing African celebration.  My African experience - 9/10

Bellville, Western Cape

There's nothing South African about this restaurant, except of course the staff. From the decor, to the drinks, to the food - every part of this place screams 'Mexico'.  Their menu covers all kinds of Mexican classics including; Quesadillas, burritos, enchiladas, tacos, wraps, and my favourite - chilli poppers.  The drinks menu won't disappoint either and include a range of flavoured tequila's, including my favourite - chocolate cake tequila.  The only downside is there seems to be only one branch in the country. My Mexican experience - 8/10.

Somerset West, Western Cape

There's something magical about Thai Sabai. The skin clinic / day spa is Thai owned and massages are done by experienced Thai masseuses.  You can't help but feel as though you've been transported to a tropical Thai island. From the lush gardens and the tranquil waterfall outside, to the Thai inspired teas and light lunches, to the soothing music in the background, and the rich Asian decor, every effort has been made to ensure that you're completely relaxed and feel like a brand new person by the time you leave.  They offer everything from 30 minutes massages to half day treatments. My Thai experience - 10/10.
