With a near panoramic view of the acacia scrub beyond your table as you are served freshly prepared food from our kitchen, the dining tent will excite your senses. Breakfast offers a healthy continental buffet which includes home-made museli and freshly cut exotic fruit or a hearty and familiar English breakfast. Evans our chef is on hand to prepare your eggs exactly as you like them. Lunch might be a tasty risotto or quiche with fresh herbs and salad from our organic vegetable garden. Supper is sumptuous and Evans’ repertoire is extensive but be sure to sample his famous coffee marula mousse. The camp manager hosts you during meals and this is a convivial time to ask questions and meet other guests.
On occasions you might prefer the solitude of a private al fresco meal on the deck of your tent in the morning air or by candle-light. In the Nina tents, we will serve you from the kitchen and Josephat or another of our waiters will attend to you unobtrusively. In the Chui and Simba tents, we can give you a private chef for the night who will cook in your personal kitchen and serve you at your own dining table. This is ideal for family time or intimacy.
Bush Breakfasts, Picnic Lunches and Open Air Dining
Our kitchen is totally mobile so don’t be surprised if you find the restaurant floor is the grassy plain of the conservancy one evening or if the kitchen one morning is transformed into a tree trunk and trestle table. Our specially designed safari coolers and hampers make for the most luxurious picnic lunches too. We are not confined to eating in camp so let us amaze you with the most spectacular settings for your meals.
Thank Evans for wonderful food - our acclaimed chef delights in exciting your tastes.
“I suppose most of my dishes are continental but personally, I think you can’t beat traditional East African food. If guests want to try ugali, sukumwiki and my special Luou chicken I can prepare local dishes too. There’s an open invitation for everyone to my kitchen, some of our guests are really interested in cooking and want to see how we do it in the bush. Recipes from guests are always welcome and if you have any special dietary requirements, I will take care to prepare what you want to eat. Bon apetit!”
