Is there a change of season in the Karoo? Temperatures do begin to drop from April, the later sunrise and earlier sunset become more exquisite to watch, and local tourists make their way into the cooler landscape for cycling and exploring. African Relish enjoys the autumn with it’s holiday season and the activities we share with guests.
As a year passes with the Covid lockdown we are happy to be #openforbusiness.
We have added new suppliers and artisans to our Foodie Tour. An early morning stop at the Karoo Slaghuis for a demonstration on how to debone a leg of lamb. Followed by a visit to Leonie & Andre Perold aquaponics, a chat with Cobus van Bosch knife maker and a witsblits tasting at the Fransie Pienaar museum. Guests still enjoy the visits to the Prince Albert Olive oil press and Gays Guernsey dairy cheese tasting. A cooking demo and lunch in the cooking school completes this hands on foodie experience.
Book yourself a Tuk Tuk adventure to explore the town of Prince Albert.
Coming up in April and again later in the year are week-long private cycling groups from around the country, meeting in Prince Albert. Itineraries include short cycle rides to the blacksmith, weavery, knife maker, rides to Meiringspoort and Weltevrede fig farm, the Big rides up the Swartberg Pass, and down to Die Hel, a fun cook off, ghost ramble, botanical and bird walks, olive oil tasting, lectures, and meals at various restaurants about town.
From May to end August the Winter Warmer special offer is valid, for a family of 4 or couple, staying two nights. The discount includes a half day cooking class or Foodie Tour along with our cookbook.
See you on the verandah, or see you in the kitchen. Book a cooking class.
