11 New Experiences: From Cape Town to Sedgefield With The Benguela Cove

From wine tastings on a lagoon to pirate-themed adventure mini-golf, there’s so much to discover at Benguela Cove, Nom Nom and Lakeside Lodge & Spa

Just imagine: Free coffee with your on-the-go breakfast in Somerset West. Then pirate putt putt and a waterpark adventure before high tea in Hermanus. Followed by canoeing, SUP, waterski or a fishing charter in Sedgefield, with couples massages and the option of booking into a five-star luxury lake house villa for the night.

There are so many awesome experiences to discover for families, groups, friends and couples at Nom Nom in Somerset West, Benguela Cove in Hermanus and Lakeside Lodge in Sedgefield.

1 FAMILY BRUNCH AND FREE COFFEE
From fill-your-own croissants to waffle benedicts and honey-butter pancakes, there’s an awesome breakfast and brunch selection at Nom Nom. And it’s good for the family – see the separate Petit Nom Noms kiddies menu – or for breakfast on the go. Nom Nom bakes their own fresh breads, cakes and pastries daily. Plus: Get a free cappuccino or Americano when you buy two pastries between 8am and 3pm any day of the week from Nom Nom’s pastry bar.
