Things to do


What an exciting transition! West Sands Caterers' relocation to the Fossil Park Restaurant in November 2023 signifies a strategic step towards expanding and diversifying their offerings. By merging their culinary expertise with the established reputation of the Fossil Park, West Sands Caterers can now provide an even more captivating dining experience to their customers.

West Sands @ Fossil Park boasts a menu filled with delectable dishes that tantalize the taste buds while remaining budget friendly. Specializing in Spitbraai’s, their Chef's signature dish, The Spitbraai Pie, is a mouthwatering creation that harmonizes the flavours of slow-roasted meat with buttery pastry. For a nostalgic indulgence, the Roosterkoek burger offers a blend of tradition and innovation, evoking the essence of South African culinary heritage.

Whether you're planning a casual meeting, a celebratory event, or a corporate function, West Sands @ Fossil Park offers the perfect venue. From breakfast meetings to conferences and weddings, their dedicated team ensures every detail is impeccably executed.

Elevate your event with their popular Murder Mystery Evenings, where suspense meets culinary delights. And for those who prefer a private affair, Chef Charl Gildenhuys is available for personalized catering services.
