When Café Thirty-A owner Harriet Crommelin got back from her 11-day trip to South Africa , she decided to share her experience in a language everyone could understand — food.

Pouring imported South African wines, Cafe Thirty-A chef Ken Duenas and Crommelin have created a five-course dinner worthy of the savanna as a way to commemorate her South African trip last December.

"I hope the dinner inspires guests to visit South Africa ," Crommelin said.

"They get to experience a little bit of our trip," added Stephen Marlette, Crommelin's significant other and travel companion.

Crommelin and Marlette have traveled extensively through Europe and United States over the years. It was Crommelin's nephew who convinced her to travel to Africa , along with fellow friends who claimed it was the trip of a lifetime.

Crommelin and Marlette typically travel with only their imagination.

"I have a saying that tourists don't know where they've been and travelers don't know where they're going," Marlette said.
