Romantic Picnics - Riverside

Riverside Picnics

Our Picnic Spots are all in a unique setting, nestled in the river bank, tucked under gazebos and protected by our river island on which Cape Clawless Otter hunt, relax, sip on Wine or Bubbly and watch the river birds surf the rapids a few feet from the comfort of your lounger.

The Gourmet Romantic Picnic baskets are set up with mattress, cushions and throws on a private stretch of river with abundant birdlife where even the very shy and rarely seen African Finfoot has taken up residence.

The Luxury Picnic Spots…Rapids, Aphrodites, Ophelia’s and Fish Eagle picnic spots are completely private and surrounded by tall reeds and trees, sheltered under an enclosed thatch gazebo. The interiors are designed for romance with a comfortable double bed flop spot, mosquito nets and an intimately set table alongside the river.

The Boudoir Picnic Spots at The Willow Tree Hideaway or The KingFisher River Loft, are the ultimate in romantic decadence. For those very, very special occasions…this is the ultimate treat.

Enjoy wraparound views of the nature reserve and let us indulge you with our delicious and wholesome picnic fare. We cater for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans, gluten intolerant and Halaal guests.
