We will meet at Nomad's Land for introductions and a restroom stop after your drive to get here. Leave your car in our safe on-site parking area, I will provide transport for the day. We kick off the day with a Betty's Bay 'must-do' - we pay a visit to the African penguin colony at Stony Point. Walking along the boardwalk, I will teach you about the penguins and other animals at and show you the useful edible and medicinal plants growing in the area. Our next stop is the 'supermarket of the sea' - the tide and sea conditions will determine the spot. I will point out all the edibles on land and in the rock pools and teach you about their cullinary uses and how to sustainably and legally harvest food from the sea. After foraging in the rock pool we will take our harvest back to Nomad's Land for lunch preparation. Learn how to make your own perriwinkle 'frikkadels' and sesame sea lettuce crisps on the fire and get some 'braai master' secrets. Lunch will include your own creations and line fish prepared on the fire served with garden salad and fire bread and will be the 'formal' end of the activities, but you may extend your visit with a swim or round of mini-golf.
I am in love with the sea, seafood, foraging, nature and my home town Betty's Bay. Sharing my passion for life with others combined with a natural flair for entertaining people led me to a career in hospitality for the last 20 years and landed me a spot as a contestant on two TV reality cooking competitions - 'The Ultimate Braai Master' (season 1) and KykNet Kokkedoor (season 2). I own a co-living/co-working accommodation and Experience venue called 'Nomad's Land' and I am a registered tourist guide.

I will choose the perfect rock pool for the particular day of your outing - regardless of the weather or sea conditions because I know the area intimately - so well that I have even designed the town map displayed at the local shop!
最多可有6位年满12周岁的参与者参加。 Guest who would like to partake in the foraging need to obtain a bait collecting permit from any South African Post Office. Guests without permits will get to partake in all the other activities other than foraging.
Shorts or 'roll-up' pants for foraging in rock pools
I do not provide alcoholic drinks for lunch but you may bring your own and keep it chilled for lunch in the refrigerator while we are out foraging.
