Due to concerned inquiries from sensationalist reporting in German media:

☝️ We are not dying like flies in South Africa and no mass graves are being dug either! ❣️

The second wave reached its peak three weeks ago and the curve is flattening significantly. According to local frontline medics the South African variant seems more contagious but not more deadly.

Our beaches have been open again for a week (it's still summer with beautiful weather), alcohol can be sold again, restaurants are trading again and the curfew is a more palatable 23:00 to 04:00.

Furthermore, in public, everyone is wearing masks, sanitizing hands and keeping their distance.

Journalists claiming to be reporting on the situation in South Africa should not stoop to sensationalist reporting to enrich themselves and to "sell" a story. Have more empathy for the adopted country you call home and be aware that your sensationalism costs jobs.

Everyone stay healthy and don't let them drive you crazy 🙏😘

We took a walk around the city today in support of our restaurants and #jobssavelives. All our guests remember Cape Town’s natural beauty and welcoming people but it’s our magnificent food that ties it all together. Sadly we are seeing so many of our favorite establishments buckling under draconian lockdown regulations. The hospitality industry supports millions of livelihoods and families in South Africa. @chefswarehouse_chef_liamtomlin @charleschamp @dodokr8 @oldharbourbeer @runrabbitruncoffee @epice_franschhoek @thali_capetown #capetownrestaurants #foodiecapetown #breestreet #tourismcapetown #tourisminmyblood @ Tamboerskloof, Western Cape, South Africa

In this time of crisis where we are all worried about our futures, we all need a little hope. A sign. No matter how obscure and seemingly insignificant. A voice in the darkness that shouts “Land ho!” as we navigate our boats through this storm.

With this in mind we thought we would share a little story with you. A story that gives us hope, encouragement and motivation.

A few days ago we were sent an email, out of the blue, by previous owners of The Trevoyan. The picture they attached was of The Trevoyan in 1918/19, the year of the Spanish Flu Pandemic.

He wrote, “One day an elderly lady came to the gate and was peering through. I asked her to come in as its a guest house and she could have a look around, but she declined. The next day I had a 4 page letter on patterned notepaper to say that her family were the original owners and her grandfather had planted the oak tree! She told me about the *Spanish Flu and how everyone around them died but no one in that house was affected and they all survived!” He continued, “The house was originally called Blink Bonnie and she told me that her wedding photos were taken on the verandah where you serve breakfast and they then had a **sea view as the shore was in Strand Street!

This little story from Trevoyan’s past gave us the nudge to do everything we can to save our business for our past guests, our repeater guests, our future guests, our staff and finally ourselves. We love it and we will persevere! We will be back to welcome you all.

Some facts:
*South Africa was one of the five worst-hit parts of the world. About 300,000 South Africans died within six weeks. That represented 6% of the entire population at the time.

**The Trevoyan no longer boasts a sea view as the land was reclaimed in the 1940s pushing back the sea.

SANCCOB saves seabirds

So many of our guests have visited the penguins in Simonstown. Now the penguins are visiting Simonstown. #lockdowndays

#Lockdown has its perks for #Africanpenguins in Simon’s Town. This is one of the reasons why our Penguin Rangers have their hands full but waddling down the street is enjoyable & safer for the birds these days, clearly!
#AdoptAnEgg at https://bit.ly/3csbrtQ and get connected to the very heart of saving this #endangeredspecies.

Summer inspired our Cape Town breakfast bowl. A mixed organic tomato selection with cubes of creamy Feta cheese, locally produced capers. Dressed with a dash of olive oil and a splash of fresh lime juice and you're set for a day of exploring.
