The concept of ‘down-to-earth’ takes on a magical charm at Towerbosch Earth Kitchen, a Stellenbosch Wedding Venue and one of the best-kept Winelands secrets just outside of Stellenbosch. The thatch-roofed restaurant is situated in the bend of a mountain stream, flanked by nasturtium carpeted woods and sweeping lawns. The rock pool and playground will keep the children busy while adults can enjoy South African cuisine and estate wines.

Towerbosch Earth Kitchen can arrange a beautiful ceremony and reception for the perfect wedding celebration and is not your standard venue needing thousands of rands to decorate. Towerbosch has designed a space that is ready and beautiful to use, with no extra décor needed, ensuring that the bride has minimal costs and troubles to add to her day.

Towerbosch Earth Kitchen captures the eye and imagination with a bespoke ceiling chandelier installation made of farm twigs painted white and draped with vintage treasures, old crockery and family trinkets. The floor is filled with unique chairs and tables of all shapes and sizes which give it an eclectic, yet inviting feel. An array of family silverware and mixed china sourced from nearest and dearest cupboards adorns the tables. A large fireplace and comfy library nook with old books and oversized leather sofas, round off a relaxed, homely ambience.

The unique style of preparing and serving food keeps any function interesting and exciting, as it is served feast-style on every table which compliments the present with pleasant aromas and exceptional taste.

There is no rushing of Karoo lamb shoulders or drenching with heavy sauces in their kitchen, where everything is cooked to perfection at a slow pace, with the meaty mains as special as the vegetable accompaniments. No French terms, no fusion of any kind, no fuss, only honest food cooked with the best local ingredients with the smallest carbon footprint.

Accommodation


Camping Area

The camping area is kept small to enhance privacy for those who want that. There are five camp sites, each with its own electrical point, braai area and bushveld trees for shade.

The central facilities include two neat and clean ablution areas, a kitchen, gathering area for meetings and games like darts, a lapa, a lapa kitchen, mini plunge pool and open air shower.

The facilities at Kazi Mingi also suit smaller groups (no more than 20 people) who wish to have the camp to themselves. The lapa (braai area) can accommodate up to 20 people who want to enjoy each other's company around the fire with the lapa-kitchen just next door to make the catering a breeze. During the day, one can cool off in the mini pool which is situated in a beautiful little garden, or make use of the "survivor shower".

Self Catering

There is a beautiful, well equipped self-catering bush chalet ("hartbeeshuisie") within walking distance from the camp sites. It has a double bed and an extra bed in the lounge area - ideal for familiy or friends who do not wish to camp.

A lookout tower that is ideal for watching the beautiful sunsets and sunrises over the mountains. The views from here are simply stunning. The ideal spot for a sundowner.

 

Facilities

Ablution Facilities

There are two small ablution blocks. One has a separate toilet and shower with lots of room for hanging your clothes, sitting and dressing. The other block offers two separate units, one for ladies and one for men, each with its own washbasin, shower and toilet. The facilities are clean and well looked after.

Kitchen

The kitchen has washing-up basins and a chest freezer. There is also a kitchen facility next to the lapa for the use of visitors to the lapa.

Lapa

The lapa has space for 20 people socializing around the fire.

Mini Splash Pool

The mini pool is suitable for cooling off during hot days, it reminds one of a bushveld jacuzzi without the bubbles.

A swing and a trampoline are available for children.

Open Air Shower

The open air "survivor" shower is very popular during hot days when people can take a shower - sometimes with clothes on in order to stay cool for longer periods.

Look Out Deck

The lookout tower offers the opportunity to view some of the Bushveld's best sunsets as well as sunrises and beautiful views all around during the day. This is also the place where you go to try for cellphone contact.

Meeting Area

This small meeting area also doubles for playing darts or other games. There is a white wall for overhead projectors and braai facilities.

Walks in the Veld

Bordering our farm are two game farms. If you are (very) lucky, you may spot some game whilst on a walk on our farm. Game drives may be arranged with our neighbours.

What to Bring Along

Bring food and drink, towels, torches, mosquito repellant, suntan lotion, binoculars for birdwatching, walking shoes and mountain bikes. And, of course, camping gear if you are not booked for our self-catering accommodation.

SMALL doggies, under supervision, are welcome.
