Join Louise Carver & Ross Learmonth at Stanford Hills Estate

Louise Carver and Ross Learmonth

Louise Carver and Ross Learmonth will be performing at Stanford Hills Estate on January 3rd. This is Carver’s fifth concert to welcome in the New Year at this beautiful estate, which lies at the foot of the Klein River Mountains.

Carver says: “This is becoming a tradition for me. Playing all my hits on a protea farm with vineyards and orchards is a beautiful way to start the year. I am so excited that Ross Learmonth will be joining me for the 2020 concert, it is going to be a special one!”

Both Carver and Learmonth are known as two of South Africa’s most popular artists. Having had 40 Top 10 hits between them over the years, this exclusive show will be filled with music South Africans know and love. 

The performances will include collaborations with both artists singing and performing on each other’s songs (there are also some surprise covers in the works). 

Louise Carver has had multiple radio hits with singles such as ‘Empty Fantasy’, ‘Home’ and ‘Warrior feat. Zulu Boy’. Internationally, she has had two number one European hits and two US Billboard number ones, with ‘Sunrise’, and ‘Crazy Enough.’

Apart from the chart success, Louise has been nominated for eleven South African music awards, produced six studio albums, one live album, and was a 46664 ambassador for the Nelson Mandela foundation.

In 2018 Carver started *Carver Entertainment, a live music events company. “I noticed a gap in the market for live music shows outside of clubs or at big festivals. It was a desire of mine to perform at venues that my fans will also love.”

After nearly two decades of touring and recording, the formidable Ross Learmonth is about to embark on a series of solo shows titled ‘Bare Bones’ – an exclusive journey detailing the description and explanation of the song writing, stories and events that led to Learmonth’s success as Prime Circle’s frontman.

It will be the first time that Learmonth ventures out on his own and a solo album is on the cards for 2020.

About us

Actually, Home Food and Travel offers a lot more than just reviews of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.  We also visit great destinations, receive advice from interior designers and stop to smell the roses and taste the coffee.

Our team of journalists are seasoned travels and love visiting the myriad of exciting places around South Africa.  Whether it is off the beaten track or in the heart of the top attractions of the country, we’ll be there,

Home Food and Travel advice on finding the right accommodation

So what is the right accommodation?  Well more often than not, it’s your travel budget that dictates the type of accommodation that you choose. 

Expensive is not always better.  Our team at Home Food and Travel will tell you that they have camped in areas with limited ablutions and had a wonderful holiday.  They have also spent a night in a five star hotel only to be disappointed because their expectations exceeded the experience.

The reason for your travels will also affect your choice.  A business trip requires different amenities to a beach holiday. 

Our articles, reviews and experiences can certainly help you make your decision.

Restaurants with a good mix of service, food and ambiance

To my mind a great restaurant offers three things – excellent service, great food and a wonderful ambiance.  Of these, service is the most important. 

No matter that the food is delicious and the setting delightful, poor service can ruin the occasion.  However, great service combined with mediocre meal and a plane jane restaurant can still be a pleasant night out.

We’ve eaten in restaurants that are really dirty but with incredible food and couldn’t help but give a rave review.  We’ve also hardly noticed what we ate because the setting was just amazing.

However, the best restaurants come with the best of service, food and ambiance.

Spas are the ultimate relaxation aid

How do you know when you have had a great spa experience?  The answer, of course, is when you doze off on the treatment table. 

Well that’s our theory anyway.  It also doesn’t take a grand location with enormous facilities for a spa to be really good

A small, personal spa that is owner run can result in the best massage you have ever experienced.  However, the grand spas in five star hotels offer unsurpassed facilities in an environment that just makes the stress in your shoulders and neck melt away before you even finish checking in.


You don’t have to be an adrenaline junky to enjoy an exciting experience.  In fact, what are commonly termed adventure activities usually have incredibly high safety standards and unblemished safety records.

Ziplining, bungy jumping and shark cage diving are all very safe.  It’s just that our mind tells us we are craaazzzzyyyy to be doing this.

On the road to great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities

If you’re driving, be safe and make use of all the wonderful farm stalls that populate South Africa’s open roads.

If you overhear somebody asking a lot of questions or see someone taking photos of empty bedrooms chances are it’s one of our Home Food and Travel team members.

We’re out looking or those great places of accommodation, restaurants, spas and adventure activities.

See you on the road!
