Three - course Springbok and Bobotie evening
Enjoy two traditional South African meals served in three courses. The first is Springbok which is a tender meat that is a must for first time visitors to South Africa. The second is Bobotie which is a dish filled with spicy curry flavours and nuances, reminiscent of the Malay influences in South African food.

Three- course Karoo lamb
Karoo lamb is renowned for its succulent and tender nature. This tasty meal consists of soup, Karoo lamb, vegetables of the day, rice, roasted potatoes and a variety of salads.


This all-time favourite is unique to South Africa and consists of meat, vegetables and potatoes served on a bed of rice. Potjiekos is slowly cooked in a black iron pot on an open fire for several hours which ensures that the food is flavourful and tender.

Kudu Steak evening
Delicious Kudu steak is prepared in a special home-made marinade and served with a variety of salads, a potato dish and fresh bread.
