Breakfast & dining

Breakfast is usually served on the patio. Besides fresh fruits, "boeretroos" (traditional South African coffee), tea and fresh orange juice, you can choose from a variety of egg dishes, served with all the usual trimmings. Our bread is baked fresh daily on the premises. Homemade jams, cold meats, cheeses and yoghurt are also available.

Dinner can either be a traditional South African "braai" of grilled meat, served with a selection of fresh vegetables and a salad. Your hosts will prepare this in our custom-built braai area or on the dining room/patio. Alternatively, guests are welcome to organise their own braai in the braai area.

Another option is to enjoy a full, 3-course gourmet dinner prepared by Marnice in our kitchen. These dinners include uniquely South African cuisine and can be enjoyed with the sounds of the bush in the background.
