Dial-a-Picnic Makes Picnicking a Walk in the Park

Take the mess and the fuss out of picnics…

There are few better ways to unwind after a long, hard week (or year) than spreading out a blanket under the shade of a tree, throwing down some cushions, popping open a bottle of the good stuff, and enjoying an outdoor feast with friends. Fortunately for those of us who live in the Cape, we have a smorgasbord of wonderful picnic spots dotted around the peninsula that are ideal for doing exactly that.

Now, imagine skipping the part where you have to pack the picnic basket, and lug it all the way to your chosen location? Doesn’t that sound pretty darn peachy? We certainly think so. Which is why we’ve become loyal users of Dial-a-Picnic.

The only effort required is choosing your preferred picnic hamper, and Dial-a-Picnic does the rest. Your picnic then arrives in hand-woven baskets, after which you can pop open the lid, and tuck in.

Dial-a-Picnic even offers a “surprise setup” package, where your picnic is delivered to a venue of your choice, and laid out before your arrival, along with blankets, cushions and themed accessories.

Pick your Picnic

Dial-a-Picnic has its own list of recommended picnic spots, which includes idyllic garden venues, such as Kirstenbosch Gardens and Noordhoek Common; seaside spots such as Llandudno Beach; as well as the secluded Signal Hill picnic area. But, ultimately, the choice of venue is up to you – you can even elect to have the picnic delivered to your own home.

Of course, the standout service that Dial-a-Picnic offers is the option to create an entire experience from start to finish – where the catering is totally taken care of and the entire package is customised to fit in with your needs and desires.

For example, if you’re after a romantic picnic experience, Dial-a-Picnic can help you choose an appropriately secluded venue with scenic sunset views. Looking for a more adventurous outing? Try a Picnic & Horse Riding package, or a Treasure Hunt Picnic – ideal for kid’s birthday parties.

So, what are you waiting for? Those sandwiches aren’t going to eat themselves.

Please note The picnics can either come packed in a takeaway box with biodegradable plates, wooden knives and forks, or in a wicker basket with porcelain plates, stainless-steel cutlery, a wooden board, wet wipes, serviettes and toothpicks. Extras that can be included at an additional cost include picnic blankets, scatter cushions, champagne cooler ice boxes, umbrellas, stretch tents, tables and chairs. Baskets and accessories are provided on a loan basis and must be returned (a refundable goods insurance deposit will be charged).




Snack Pack: R140 per person
Standard Lunch Package: R195 per person
Deluxe Package (see menu for available options): R235 per person
Surprise picnic setups are charged differently
