Vergelegen's mystic Camphor Forest is the host for a "white tablecloth" picnic. It offers an opportunity for both intimate as well as family and friend gatherings in a beautifully shaded and tranquil environment in the remnants of Van Der Stel's Camphor forest.

"Men and women today do not spend whole days at the dining table and ten-course meals have disappeared. But more than ever before, food, through the choice of dishes and their preparation, forms an integral part of life and remains the natural expression of conviviality."

Robert J Courtine - Larousse Gastronomique

It is in this spirit that we welcome you to the Picnic at Vergelegen!
