Fine Safari Dining

Experience fine safari dining with Thanda Safari. The South African cuisine is as diverse as its population, and Thanda Safari’s menus, creatively conceived by chefs, reflect this. From slow-cooked potjiekos to tender game cuts flavoured with homegrown herbs, our chefs produce perfection for the palate and cater for all dietary requirements. Every meal offers unique Thanda dishes and tastes, combined with carefully chosen wines and impeccable service. Our breakfasts, lunches, dinners and high teas personify the Thanda Safari style.

Bush & Breakfast

The Thanda Safari Game Reserve has so much to offer, just imagine a tasty bush breakfast after an early morning game drive – sizzling bacon and eggs, pancakes, muesli, muffins, fruits, cheeses, meats, coffees, teas – set up in style. Thanda Safari is renowned for our bush breakfasts, where every detail is carefully conceived and every mouthful is memorable.

Fire & Flames

There is nothing like a campfire in the bush at Thanda Safari under South African stars in our traditional African bomas – either at our lodges or deep in the reserve. Thanda’s chefs prepare your feast ahead of your arrival, knowing how hungry you’ll be after your evening game drive. Dine the African way, to the sounds of the wild.

Romantic Dining

The light of the African stars glints on your wine glass over a romantic dinner on the deck of your suite or in our atmospheric dining areas. Speak to us and we can arrange whatever you desire. Thanda Safari caters for indoor and outdoor dining and our chefs produce menus that delight and romance our guests.

Private Dining in the Bush

Fine dining in the wild is an experience you’ll never forget. At your request, our chefs and staff can create a special menu and private dining setting in the bush, where you’ll eat under the African night sky, surrounded by the sights, sounds and sensations of the wild.

Dawn & Dusk Bush Stops

During your game drives, our sunrise and sunset refreshment stops at breathtaking locations overlooking the reserve are one of the highlights on safari. Whether it’s sunrise coffee and rusks or sunset drinks and snacks, you’ll be reluctant to leave.
