  • There’s nothing quite like the taste of homegrown food, so why not choose a holiday that offers just that?

    Set on a 300-year-old working farm in South Africa’s magnificent Drakenstein Valley, food is taken very seriously at Babylonstoren. At the heart of the 200-hectare farm is a beautifully landscaped eight-acre garden, with over 300 varieties of edible plants. It’s quite unlike any other – and the result is servings of simple, honest food, with little-to-no fuss, that can be enjoyed at the wonderful Babel restaurant. Here you’ll find colour-coded salads, while the menu itself changes with the seasons. In summer, feast on an Orange Salad of pumpkin, oranges and carrots – and in winter, warm up with a slow-cooked leg of lamb. If you’re looking for a meal to remember, the organic oasis of Babylonstoren awaits.
