Full description
At the moment you arrive, you'll be ceremoniously dressed in a chitenge (sarong), before being welcomed by traditional dancers and a mini face paint. Ladies are given dots on their cheeks to signify the beauty of African women, while men receive stripes defining the warrior look of African men. Then, you'll be ushered into the main enclosure, where your senses will be bombarded by the tastes, sights, and sounds of Africa. During the feast, the entertainment incorporates mbira music, traditional dancers, a local folk storyteller, a fortune teller, a hair braider, elaborate face painters, and souvenir sellers.

But the highlight of the evening’s entertainment is the renowned, interactive drumming show beginning after dinner. Guests are each handed a djembe drum and given the opportunity to participate in the drumming show by learning a few rhythms. After the drumming show, you'll be invited to the dance floor to groove to the beat of the Africa drums. The evening is capped off with a group of a cappella singers serenading you with personalized, sweet melodies at your table.

The meal begins with a shared starter platter, featuring mouth-watering specialities such as skewered peppered impala, smoked crocodile tail, and corn ciabatta and "nyimo" fritters. Then, make your way to the campfire for the chef’s freshly made soup of the day served with croutons and homemade bread. There is also a salad bar, featuring a variety of different offerings made from local organic produce, including sweet potato, legumes, nuts, and seeds, complimented by greens, dressings, and assorted breads.

The main course features a braai (barbeque) buffet feast including pork fillet, beef, borewors, marinated chicken, game meatballs, and a spit roast-of-the-day served with peanut butter rice or sadza (a thick maize-meal porridge which is the local staple diet) and a variety of sauces. You may also tempt your taste buds with a traditional hunter’s stews or try the fish, Zambezi bream and kapenta (freshwater sardine). Vegetarian dishes include a vegetable stir fry, the chef’s daily pasta dish, homemade garlic bread, and roast potato wedges. Halal meals are also available. The adventurous may wish to try a local delicacy, a sautéed mopane worm, for which you will receive a certificate as proof.
