In an effort to highlight the plight of the critically endangered African Rhino, One&Only Cape Town has devoted the entire month of September to this worthy cause.
Over the course of the past five years, hundreds of rhinos have been illegally poached in South Africa, their horns destined for markets where it is wrongly believed that the ground powder has aphrodisiacal properties. WINING & DINING
From when guests enter the resort, there will be no doubt as to the focus for the month, with
A model rhino will take centre-stage in Vista Bar & Lounge for awareness and a bespoke Save the Rhino cocktail Rhinos Revenge
will also be on sale at the bar for guests throughout the month of September.
Be enticed to dine with purpose this month with the special set menu
at Reuben’s. The three-course lunch and dinner menu
will cost R230 per person and features carefully conceived edible specialities paired with Linton Park’s Rhino Wines
