The black and white photographs displayed on the Fyndraai Restaurant’s walls date from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. They form part of a project to preserve this region’s photographic heritage. They are drawn from the Paarl Heemkring’s collection of over 26,000 glass-plate negatives. This precious and fragile collection was digitized in 2008, courtesy of a grant from the Delta Trust, so that it may be appreciated by future generations.
There is no furniture at the picnic sites, but blankets re provided. If you prefer to have your picnic with a table and chair, you may do so with pleasure, at one of our tables on the lawn in front of Fyndraai restaurant.
On collecting your picnic basket from Fyndraai restaurant, it is approximately a 10 minute walk to the picnic area. A guide will carry your basket and assist you in selecting the perfect spot from a variety of available sites; these include a large grassy lawn alongside our forest, sandy river bank spots and shady spots overlooking the farm dam. When available, our tractor and trailer will transport you to the picnic area. Guests are more than welcome to cool off in he river shallows.
Our perfect picnic rosé wine, Lekkerwijn, and a bottle of our Vogelvrij spring water is included in each picnic basket for two. If you require any further drinks with your picnic, please purchase them before walking down to the picnic site, as the site is not serviced. Ablution facilities are available, discreetly hidden in the forest.
