Let us indulge you with our delicious and wholesome picnic fare. We cater for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans and Halaal guests.


Looking to celebrate a special occasion or intimate function… an engagement, bachelorette party, wedding, anniversary, baby shower or important birthday, WildWood has several unique offerings from hot air ballooning to intimate wine-pairing evenings with breathtaking views that provide the perfect backdrop for your special day whatever the time of year.  

Intimate Weddings

We know and understand that you may choose to pamper guests who are intimately special in your lives, rather than hosting a large or lavish wedding. Host a contemporary, delectable outdoor wedding, amidst our tranquil, picturesque gardens, with rolling lawns and pristine, flowing rivers.
