“Food brings people together on many different levels – it’s the nourishment of the body AND soul” – Giada De Laurentiis

Food is an essential part of our everyday lives, and a universal language that creates bonds, memories, and moments. Nothing can bring people together like a feast of delicious foods, and no adventure is complete without it! With every bite you can taste the story of the places, and of the people – their history, their pride, and the love that goes into every dish.

Whether it is your first taste of Bokkoms (salted and dried fish -a unique West Coast delicacy); biting into a warm roosterkoek smothered in reserves and locally made cheeses; savouring the freshest seafood at an open air beach restaurant; digging into traditional dishes such as “kerrie afval”, bobotie or braaivleis; sipping chilled Methode Cap Classique whilst eating fresh oysters; enjoying homemade rusks with a steaming hot mug of “moer koffie”, or nibbling on tapas while sampling artisanal gins – the Bergrivier region offers it all – and so much more!
