Indigenous Escape // Saturdays

Today finds us looking as far back as first generation inhabitants, and how the Khoi-San survived off the ocean. Our host’s Billy & Ronel live in Betty’s Bay and will be showing us how to forage and prepare an edible from the shoreline.

The day includes a stop at Cape Town’s other penguin colony, and an optional afternoon hike for those up to it. Billy will have the braai going and look forward to the homemade ginger beer from Ronel! What a lekker day in South Africa!    

 ⌛  9 hours
🐧  You’ll see penguins!
✔️  Scenic drives 
✔️  Prepare a Periwinkle meal
✔️  Learn about unique fauna, flora and wildlife

This Side That Side // Sundays

Today we’ll see SA from more than one angle. We’ll start with a stop in Redhill, a township in the False Bay region. Experience authentic township food, iskopo and umqombothi (sheep head and traditional beer). Meet local children and learn about how they as a community are overcoming poverty.

Our second part, "That Side" is met with wine and braaing with locals . Meat over flame and always a great salad from the kitchen! We'll be taught how to make Braai Broodjie, our version of a grilled cheese on steroids. 

 ⌛  8 hours 
🥘  Braai this & that side!
✔️  Township experience
✔️  Table Mountain Nature 
✔️  Braai Broodjie Workshop
