If you live in Gauteng, you’re probably thinking about what to do this weekend. We’ve got the solution – a serene riverside retreat just a few kilometres north of Joburg in the scenic Hennops River Valley. With one of the only true riverside settings in the region, River Place is set to become the favourite Sunday spot in Gauteng.
Bring the whole family for a relaxed Sunday lunch at the Serendipity Country Café at River Place and spend the afternoon enjoying good food while listening to the soothing sounds of a saxophonist or the laid-back vibes of award-winning guest artists like Daniel Baron. Let the kids run around on the extensive lawn area, have their faces painted or burn up some energy on the jumping castle while the adults relax at a shaded table along the river or beneath the stretch tent.
Offering excellent value for money, the Sunday lunch set menu is only R150 per person which includes a choice of a starter and a main meal. Kids under 12 eat free. There is also an a la carte menu option with a selection of comfort food.
A great way to build up an appetite for lunch is to take a nature walk in the valley where you can spot fish eagles, goliath herons, loeries and many more bird species. The exhilarating and relatively short walk incorporates some stunning panoramic views and is a fantastic way to spend a morning enjoying nature and the fresh air followed by a hearty lunch along the river.
Located on the R511 just north of Fourways, River Place is a short drive into the countryside where the concrete jungle gives way to hills and valleys. It’s a fantastic place for the whole family to spend a relaxing Sunday amid beautiful natural surroundings right along the river, enjoying good food and good music. And for those who want to make a weekend of it, there’s also chalet-style accommodation for overnight stays, as well as conference, event and wedding facilities.
