Safari Sjef – 01
Safari Sjef is going to treat Western audiences to a majestic African journey through some of the continent’s most magnificent scenery and delicious dishes, which will be given a twist to appeal to the international audience. The show’s focus is on Africa, its landscape, people and food. Each week, Wynand will visit a new destination and create a magnificent meal in beautiful surroundings. The food will be as exceptional as the area with sophisticated elements, such as molecular gastronomy performed in the bush.
Viewers will also learn more about the area as Wynand explores the destination, speaks to local personalities and visits places of interest. He will explain how his experiences have influenced his choice of menu for the show and explain how to create each dish, suggesting substitute ingredients where they may be difficult to procure overseas.

Guests from the local community will be invited to share the meal Wynand has prepared, often without the benefit of a modern kitchen which adds to the novelty. Local beverages will also be showcased. The aim of Safari Sjef is to show Africa off at her very best.
Each week will see a new destination with a new culture and new exciting adventures to be experienced. Episodes will be filmed in the Okavango Delta, Botswana, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia amongst other exotic locations and the stars of the show will often be the wildlife so synonymous with Africa: gorillas, elephants, crocodiles and zebra. Interesting people will also take centre stage such as the Masai Mara Tribe, a sangoma and the remarkable people who are dedicated to conservation in the area. Wynand will also participate in some of Africa’s famous adrenalin sports, from bungee jumping to white water rafting.
