Flinders Ranges’ Ikara Safari Camp launches gourmet wine weekend
Flinders Ranges’ Ikara Safari Camp has joined forces with the Barossa Valley’s renowned Langmeil Winery to launch the property’s first Gourmet Weekend, offering guests an unforgettable taste of South Australia.
The ‘long’ Gourmet Weekend includes two nights at the popular ‘glamping’-style accommodation, guided tours of the Flinders Ranges and a five-course degustation dinner created by Ikara’s Executive Chef and paired with a generous selection of award-winning wines from Langmeil Winery, home to some of the oldest shiraz vines in the Barossa Valley.
Dates for the Ikara Gourmet Weekend are November 9-11, 2018.
Part of the Wilpena Pound Resort, Ikara’s Gourmet Weekend kicks off with a Sunset Tour led by one of the resort’s local Indigenous Adnyamathanha guides. Guests travel to a remarkable vantage point to view the vast Flinders Ranges and experience the magic of iconic Wilpena Pound. As the sun sets, their guide will share the country’s Indigenous stories while guests enjoy canapes and Langmeil sparkling wines.
The Gourmet Winemakers Dinner on Saturday night offers guests an exclusive experience in Ikara’s new dining pavilion, including a five-course dinner featuring local South Australian produce, expertly matched with Langmeil wines. Menu highlights include miso-cured king salmon paired with a 2017 Three Gardens Viognier Marsanne Roussanne and a honey five spice pork belly matched with a 2016 Fifth Wave Grenache, Langmeil’s most treasured Old Vine Garden grenache.
By day, guests can bushwalk along the Wilpena River, join a 4WD tour of the local gorges, take a scenic flight over the majestic Wilpena Pound, or simply relax in the comfort of the luxury safari tents.
Ikara Safari Camp is located around 400km north of Adelaide in the Ikara Flinders Ranges National Park. Wilpena Pound is a spectacular natural amphitheatre spanning 17km in length and 7km in width, shaped by the weathering and uplifting of land over time and holding important cultural significance for the Indigenous Adnyamathanha people. The camp features 15 tented pavilions including two designed for families. Guests at Ikara Safari Camp stay close to nature but enjoy some of life’s luxuries including king beds, quality linens, side tables and lamps, luggage storage, contemporary ensuite bathroom and mini bar.
Rates for the Gourmet Weekend start at $535 per person twin share or $799 per person for solo travellers and include two nights in a Luxury Safari Tent, five-course Gourmet Winemakers Dinner with matching Langmeil wines, Sunset Canapes Tour and daily breakfasts.
