Impala, kudu or springbok – world famous oysters and seafood
The  South Africans love meat: steaks, chicken, ostrich or boerewors – a  delicious spicy sausage made from beef and lamb. No braai is complete  without a periperi chilli sauce, baked sweet potato or pumpkin slices,  squashes and butternuts are popular. Knysna is famous for the very best  oysters. But also seafood, marine fish and calamares are absolutely  delicious. A local traditional dish: the Bobotie, a casserole stuffed  with minced meat and topped with custard, seasoned with one of the Cape  Malay Curries and of course Biltong: In the past, the Voortrekkers ate  the popular dried meat snack in the covered wagon. Today you get it cut  into handy slices or as whole pieces.

Great selection for beer-  liqueurs- and wine lovers
The  South Africans love a cooled Windhoek lager from Namibia, formerly  German-Southwest Africa. From the fruit of the Marula tree comes the  taste of another South African specialty, the Amarula liqueur.
Wine lovers will find many of wonderful wines in South Africa:
 Knysna’s neighboring community Plettenberg Bay is the smallest  wine-growing region in South Africa and covers only 58 hectares of the  100,000 hectares that are cultivated nationwide. This wine region is the  country’s easternmost wine route. Plett’s first vineyard, Bramon, was  born in 2000. Today there are 16 well-established vineyards on this  picturesque stretch of the Garden Route, between Harkerville and the  Crags.
In addition to the typical South African varieties Pinotage  or Sauvignon, Shiraz, Chardonnay, Merlot, Malbec and Pinot Noir are also  grown
