Planning a trip to South Africa post COVID-19


If you’re planning a trip to South Africa, there is no better time than the present. With the country’s vaccination process in full swing, South Africa is now on the green list for the majority of countries around the world. We’re also pleased to announce that all the staff at GOLD are fully vaccinated. Restaurants like GOLD, hotels, and activities around the country are open and ready to welcome travellers with strict COVID protocols in place to protect guests and staff. We also couldn’t imagine a better place to visit with our wide-open spaces.

When visiting South Africa, you really should put a visit to Cape Town at the top of your bucket list. Chat to anyone who’s been to the Mother City and they’ll tell you it’s right up there with the most beautiful places on the planet.


Cape Town’s Iconic Table Mountain

Spontaneous adventure versus planned must sees

While spontaneity might be your thing, spontaneous travel is more difficult in today’s climate. It’s therefore advisable to take some time to find out what the oldest city in South Africa has to offer and plan ahead for those must sees. Cape Town is overflowing with dramatic scenery, unbelievable views, plenty to see and do, and of course, some world-class cuisine. In your search, you might well find some sites and activities you hadn’t yet heard of, let alone considered. But be sure to book, with limited capacity at many venues you need to act early to secure your spot.

All about the food

The food options really are endless and thankfully restaurants and bars are operating throughout the country. You’d need months to eat your way through the variety of restaurants that cater for an increasingly discerning and demanding public. In terms of location, we also have everything from spectacular urban sunsets to vineyard restaurants in the ever-popular Franschhoek and Stellenbosch wine regions. At GOLD Restaurant in Cape Town we specialize in providing an out-of-this-world African feast with 14 authentic African dishes all of which also have vegetarian options available.

Around the African food world in 14 ways

As the South African saying goes, “local is lekker” (delicious). A visit to any foreign country is incomplete unless you’ve sampled some local fare – all the more reason to come to GOLD Restaurant. We’re all about providing our guests with a memorable African dining experience. Again, there’s no need to rush from place to place to savour authentic African cuisine. We provide a 14 course range of Cape Malay and African-inspired foods with a deliciously palatable western twist.
