Cuisine That Guests Talk About

Experience cuisine that guests talk about. Meals at Etali feature the high-quality meat that South Africa is known for, including local game meat, with lots of fresh seasonal and organically grown vegetables, fruit and herbs. There is no set menu as the chefs select the best produce to work their magic.

Food is a core part of the guest experience at Etali and meals are prepared fresh daily in our on-site kitchen. All guests enjoy breakfast, lunch, royal tea and dinner, along with snacks during game drives. Our menu is varied, giving guests the option of savouring different meals.

Varied Bush Dining Spaces

Meals at Etali are served in a variety of dining areas, each with its own distinct character. Our main dining area is a covered deck giving a panoramic view of the Etali Waterhole and surrounding hills. Fresh breakfasts, delicious lunches, royal tea, and our multi-course fine dining dinners are served here. We also offer the option of dining inside the beautiful main lodge area.

Or perhaps a romantic dinner on your private deck is appealing? Just say the word and we will arrange it.

Etali has an exclusive site a short distance from the lodge, tucked into the koppies, where we serve bush breakfasts as a special treat.


Boma Dinners

We also host “boma” dinners at our second deck at ground level, giving you an amazing perspective of the waterhole at night. Our chefs prepare traditional South African meals on the braai (where food is cooked over coals), accompanied by salads, starters, and fresh-baked bread. Dine in our boma, by a roaring fire, under the stars, and see who comes to the waterhole that evening.
