On the edge of the Umgeni Valley and at the end of a farm road, you will find a little bit of heaven, the Crow family’s home, ‘Where the Crows Nest’. It is such a special place, that the family would like others to enjoy it too. Professional chef Maryna, prepares delicious private gourmet picnics with a variety of home- made and local delights for her guests.


Your surroundings are natural, unspoilt and private. A special deck in a cove is set up with tables and chairs, and the picnic spread can be enjoyed with the sounds of water gently flowing down the little waterfall. Alternately, you can opt for the more family friendly spot right next to the Rietspruit River, where kids can play for hours while you relax in the dappled shade of a large tree.

If at the last minute the weather disappoints, the gourmet picnic is set up on the verandah with lovely views over the valley.

Guests are welcome to bring extra drinks of their choice.


Though we are known for our picnics, we accommodate other events such as small celebrations or parties. We also cater externally at your own venue.


Picnics must be pre- booked and viewing is by appointment only.
