Food Table

Dining is usually outdoors with a beautiful candle-lit table, however, you will also be treated to bush dinners under a canopy of stars using a simple eco-charcoal oven, and breakfast buffets out on the Mara plains – incredible dining experiences, not easily forgotten. We also offer traditional African food that is very popular with our guests.

As the weather almost always permits, guests eat all meals outside under Kenyan skies, but for those rare rainy or chilly evenings, guests can dine inside in the area adjacent to the beautiful and cosy sitting room. With its roaring fire, an inviting warm atmosphere is created.
