    What to Expect
    Start your jazz evening in Cape Town with dinner at the home of a local musician. Enjoy a meal, drinks and a unique live show in this private home to set the mood. Past hosts for these jazz dinners include South African greats like Hilton Schilder, Blackie Tempi and Mac McKenzie. Hear stories of Cape Town’s jazz culture.

    After dinner, the Jazz Safari may take you out into Cape Town to take in another live performance at one of the city’s jazz clubs, or you may head to the home of another local jazz musician to hear more music in a private setting. At the end of the tour, return with your guide to a central location.

    I don't remember exactly how I found out about Coffee Bean Routes, but I am definitely pleased I did. Like most people I had come to South Africa as a part of a safari trip. But I wanted to experience 'real life' too. I am...More

    This is advertised as a “Jazz Safari”, but there were precious few jazz sightings on it. Instead, it is essentially a field trip to the homes of two different local musicians who perform solo in their living rooms while you watch. One of them serves...More

    Dear Dennis, thank you for your review. I'm disappointed that you didn't get out of the experience what you hoped for. Certainly the basis is the two intimate home concerts, and conversations with the musicians. On your night, you had two South African jazz luminaries,...More

    We took the "Jazz safari" in a group 7 strong; it was not as advertised. We were taken to the homes of 2 musicians, one a legitimate jazz player, the other a multi-instrumentalist music teacher and performer. There had clearly been inadequate communication ahead of...More

    Dear Guy, thank you for sharing your experience. Certainly the evening did not begin as it should have - the dinner host had mixed up his calendar entries and was not ready. That is very embarrassing for us, and indeed would have lead you to...More

    In a word, Excellent! At first I was disappointed to be the only guest but it became a unique experience to have deeper conversation with the musicians about the S. African (and world) jazz scene and to get to know them as people as well...More
