Superb gourmet meals are served in the main dining room or in the outside boma under a star-studded sky. The traditional outdoor boma is the favoured setting for dinner, weather permitting. Illuminated by firelight and starry skies, diners will enjoy diverse and tasteful cuisine conjured by chefs right before them. Open fires are often used for cooking too, in true African style.

Wine cellar

Décor is contemporary, understated and inspired by surrounding nature. The wine cellar is a focal point in the room, with the fine South Africa estate collection showcased behind frameless glass.
