Meet for a pre-dinner drink and chat at our convivial Warthog Bar with other guests, before sitting down to a delicious three course dinner either plated or served buffet style on our veranda or in our well appointed candlelit dining room served personally by us.

Our Chef might also do a South African braai (barbecue) on warm nights, in the boma around a fire. This brings one close to the sounds of the night and is an opportunity to see the wonderful night sky and stars.
