Fungi fever

The appearance of wild mushrooms depends completely on natural phenomena that are impossible to forecast with absolute accuracy, particularly after long periods of drought. Delheim Estate’s mushroom forage takes place in June and July, and will teach you how to identify, forage and clean your own, hand-picked mushrooms. Participants are limited to 40 a day, which allows Delheim to maintain the delicate balance between sharing a family passion and protecting the environment where the mushrooms appear. Although the events take place during the high season for wild mushrooms, the estate cannot guarantee the appearance of mushrooms on the day. Delheim Estate is located on the Knorhoek Road, off the R44. Book at Computicket. For more information, visit
