As the Southern Cross and Orion's Belt, garland the dome of the night sky, the distant smell of a log fire from the open-air boma welcomes the guests back from their late afternoon game drive. The faint call of tribal drums announces an array of culinary delights to appease even the most discerning of palates. As a nightcap, Zwahili offers evening viewing of the game almost on the front lawn.
