9. Culinary Safari 

If you like eating as much as I do, then on Sunday, 14 February, I have a culinary journey for you to embark on.


We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, therefore, we will start at Eish!! with the Salmon Eggs Benedict with homemade hollandaise sauce.


Nothing like a hearty, 3 course Buffet at Bosveld Lapa. Some of the items on the menu include Crumbed Mushrooms, Beef, Pork and Chicken, not to mention the Strawberry Cheesecake with your name on it.


There is no need to swim the ocean to share a meal with your special person, you can just pop in at Ocean Basket. Their platter for 2 is the perfect way to get you to gently brush your partner’s hand as you reach for that prince prawn.
