Imagine having a Winter picnic in a romantic tranquil setting, just an hours drive South outside of Johannesburg, Ducks Country House is situated in Henley on Klip, here are a few reasons I fell in love with this space:

  • Fresh ingredients are bought supporting local farmers in the area, sustainability is a huge factor in this community, from recycling to supporting local communities.
  • Tranquil setting, the sounds of nature, the ducks on the river when you wake up in the morning is priceless.
  • The hospitality meets the South African standard of kindness on all levels here!
  • The food is an absolute must try, Esther shared a couple of tips with me on her lasagna, was kind enough to share her baked Apple Cake recipe with us.
  • The picnic had to be one of the highlights with a beautiful setting at the BOMA, privacy is taken into consideration as only 1 picnic is booked at a time, this way you can enjoy those deep conversations with each other, feel like you on your very own private vacation.
  • All protocols are in place from the time you enter, temperature check, sanitize, fill in a form or two, along with your breakfast form, some delicious options on the breakfast form.
  • The log cabins are cozy fitted with a tv, heater, wi-fi if you really need to check your phone chances are you don’t need to be sure to grab a good book, relax.
  • Dietary requirements are catered for on request.
  • Sustainable Travel friendly establishment.


Esther the amazing Cook.
