In the instance The Black Tie Affair will track down the perfect present, wrap it in style and have it delivered by one of our butlers if the destination is local.

the epicurean

If you count cheeses to help you sleep and you know your Roquefort from your Remoulade then you are truly an Epicurean.

Not for you are the short-lived pleasures of fried fast food or the convenience of pre-made meals. Instead, you yearn for the sun on your face as you pick your own cherries and the thrilling tug on the other end of your fishing rod that lets you know that your lunch has been caught.

Cape Town is rightfully regarded as the gourmet capital of the country and The Black Tie Affair provides the opportunity to sample the bountiful harvest the city has to offer. We offer our clientele the opportunity to be fully immersed in all things cullinary: from rolling your own sushi under the eye of an expert chef to stomping the grapes at harvest time.

Dining out is elevated to the next level of sensory indulgence as we offer the voyeuristic thrill of eating at a table inside the bustling kitchen of a top restaurant and watching the magic happen right before your eyes.

Should a less hands-on approach be required, our team can organise anything from an intimate gourmet picnic for two on a mountain-top, to a dazzling dinner for thirty in your own home.

the thrillseeker

For those of you who live to feel the adrenalin pumping through your veins and the wind rushing past your ears, we salute you. Cape Town and its surrounds offer a myriad of opportunities to tick off most of the action items on your bucket list. Whether racing a Formula 1 car around the circuit or abseiling off Table Mountain, there is never a dull moment. Whether on land, sea or in the air, every day is a chance to push the limits of endurance and have a great time while doing so.

To the seafaring type we offer a range of activities including jet skiing, scuba diving, shark cage diving, surfing, kayaking and many more.

For those who prefer thrills on land we have horse riding: along the beach or through picturesque vineyards, mountain biking over rugged terrain, abseiling our many mountain ranges, bungee jumping off a Guinness certified highest commercial jump, quad biking on the dunes, hiking, off road biking and sand boarding on the beach.

If you like the view from above then there’s skydiving, parachuting, helicopter rides and tandem paragliding.

Whatever gets your pulse racing you will find it here.
