Though coffee is a staple of the West, we’re indebted to Africa for supplying us with our favorite perk-me-up bliss. Coffee originates from Ethiopia, but today it’s produced in many other southern hemisphere countries as well: Brazil, Costa Rica, Uganda, Burundi and Kenya among them. Despite the fact that it is a large exporter of beans, in Kenya coffee culture only recently started taking off with the advent of Western-style cafes.

Franschhoek is fondly referred to as the culinary capital of South Africa – and with good reason. The town’s tastebud-pleasing, boundary-pushing eateries take you beyond the town and into the heart of its wine farms. A weekend of long lunches, laid-back wine tastings, and wonderful pairings of the two just became your next must-do trip in South Africa.

It’s early morning in a forest in the Tsitsikamma. You’re buried beneath a thick duvet and soft pillows, not entirely awake yet. But the chatter of indigenous birds and the rustling of leaves and branches outside your forest suite served as a natural alarm. The sun creates long streams of misty light through the trunks and onto the wooden floors.
