KI Food Safari

Following the sell-out success of the KI Food Safari in 2013, the event returns in 2014, once again with a star-studded foodie cast. The 7 night event kicks off at Southern Ocean Lodge 2-9 August 2014 and is a hands-on, muddy-boots paddock and vineyard discovery of Kangaroo Island’s best produce and its journey to the plates and glasses at the lauded Southern Ocean Lodge.

In the company of stellar Safari Leaders, Maggie Beer and Mark Best, join the rollicking fun as they guide excursions from farm to winery to choose the finest and freshest produce for the evening’s menu. Guests can expect star appearances throughout by local producers and food personalities. The Safari will travel across Kangaroo Island, a destination emerging globally as an island of exceptional food producers who operate on a mostly small scale, sustainable and personal basis. The Safari ‘troopers’ will meet producers, taste straight from the source and hear remarkable stories along the way.

The seven night itinerary will include a working experience at the Sheep Milk Dairy, a visit to the green pastures of Southrock Lamb and the shady groves of KI Olive Oil. Guests might pluck marron and abalone from the farm and shuck oysters from the leases at Kangaroo Island Premium Oysters. Relax with good company and enjoy fine winery lunches, cooking demonstrations, Southern Ocean BBQs and sunset drinks at Remarkable Rocks. Finish with the day’s harvest celebrated in a spectacular menu enjoyed around the table at Southern Ocean Lodge.

Join the KI Food Safari from just $7,350 per person twin share including flights between Adelaide and Kangaroo Island, itinerary of epicurean excursions such as visits to island producers, produce tastings, luxury accommodation, all dining and premium beverages. Seats on the KI Food Safari are limited, don’t delay to reserve your place and climb on board for an unforgettable food-lovers’ journey.
