Road Trip and Picnic - Part 3

Our road trip through Velddrif and along the coast brought us to our final destination, the Rocherpan Nature Reserve. There is a small entrance/conservation fee to enter the reserve, but well worth the amazing experience. If you want to come for a picnic like we did, then be sure to bring along an umbrella. The sun can get quite hot even with the cool sea breeze.

The Rocherpan Nature Reserve on South Africa's beautiful West Coast is off the beaten track and a hidden gem. We only saw a couple of other people there in passing and it was during the summer holidays when many wonderful locations are buzzing with people.

The picnic was my mother-in-law's idea. She does everything with flair, including making sure we had cold beverages and good food. The savory pies we bought along the way at Die Skooltjie Padstal, a little farm stall outside of Velddrif. Mine is featured below and was a bobotie pie, a traditional South African dish with spiced mince (ground beef). I enjoyed mine with a cold Savanna premium cider and my mother-in-law chose to bring a Graham Beck sparkling wine.
