Keeping Kosher on Safari

Posted on June 19, 2016, featured in Press

We all need a break from time to time. And now that summer is finally here, friends and family are looking forward to spending time together, making plans to get away and escape the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. Whether you plan to pack up the kids and head out to your local camping grounds or organize an incredible exotic trip halfway around the world, the last thing many people need to worry how about is how their food is prepared.

For the discerning Jewish traveler, on the other hand, well, that is a different story. Living as a kosher observant individual doesn’t only apply to your own household, but also when you are outside your home, making traveling a challenge. Suffice it to say, taking a vacation doesn’t mean taking a vacation from keeping kosher.

While it is true that keeping kosher on the road can come with its share of obstacles, it doesn’t have to—especially if that means spending your vacation on an incredible, once in a lifetime safari adventure.

With its numerous diversities—scenic, cultural, natural, and of course, wildlife—South Africa is becoming an increasingly popular vacation destination for many international travelers. Explore the wild plains and the rocky coastlines, marvel at the canyons and the waterfalls, and search for the “Big Five” (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, and buffalo). No matter your age, gender, ethnicity, or religion, people from all over the word are encouraged to completely immerse themselves in all that South Africa has to offer. So, if you are wondering if a kosher safari is even possible, we’re here to tell you that the answer is a resounding yes!

Here at Sikeleli Travel & Expeditions, we understand the particular needs and interests of the Jewish community. That’s why we’ve put together a fabulous Jewish Heritage safari, offering travelers the unique opportunity to enjoy a kosher-friendly wildlife adventure.

We provide a wide array of handcrafted itineraries, custom-designed with our kosher guests in mind. For example, you can learn about the heritage of the Jews and how they came to be in Africa. Or visit the Cape Town Holocaust Museum, reputed to be one of the most informative in the world. Travelers can also enjoy kosher wine tasting in Stellenbosch, as well as check out one of Africa’s oldest synagogues in Livingstone.
