Breakfast at the Steenberg in Constantia, South Africa

Eggs benedict at the Steenberg

Over the weekend, I was sifting through my photos of my trip to South Africa last year, when we went to Johannesburg, Cape Town and the Sabi Sabi Game Reserve in Greater Kruger National Park.

This was such a wonderful trip.

Then I found some very nice photos from this trip, which I promptly sent off to the Travel Companion, to remind him of what a happy time we had.

This sparked a bit of an exchange, and I ended up sending him a very long message via my Blackberry.

He replied: "That must be the longest BBM in history."

I had to agree.


Anyway, I took lots of food photos on our trip to South Africa last year -- way more than on our trip to Tanzania this year, in fact -- because we had so many delicious breakfasts, lunches and dinners.

So I thought I'd share with you what breakfast was like at the Steenberg, a five-star luxury hotel in the suburbs of Constantia, which is about 20 minutes from Cape Town.

It's the oldest working farm on the Cape, and it's been voted one of the best luxury experiences in Africa.

I have to say that if you get booked in the Khoi Khoi Suite, which is probably their best suite, it most certainly is.

It's like having a very nice duplex apartment.

Sparkling wine with breakfast

Breakfast here was excellent, as well.

The Steenberg has a lovely cold breakfast buffet set-up.

And on the menu for hot breakfast items was a Cape Malay omelette, which we decided to try.

It was spicy and so very good.

Even now, I remember how wonderful it was.

This was my last proper breakfast, by the way, on this particular trip to Africa, living a never-ending, and never-endingly eventful Travelife.
