Etali Safari Lodge is proud to be one of the few luxury safari lodges to offer kosher safaris. We began our kosher offerings 15 years ago, when one of our guests was looking for a lodge that catered to koshers and asked Etali owner Koos Potgieter what could be done. That request was how we came to offer our unique kosher safari experience.
Let us use our 15 years of experience of keeping kosher in the bush to take care of the details, whilst you relax and enjoy your African safari.
We created a kosher kitchen in our main lodge dining area. The kitchen, including a separate stove and refrigerator, is open to view, so our kosher guests can watch their meals being prepared. We also have separate kosher facilities for our “bush breakfasts” and boma dinners.
All of our kosher equipment, including kosher pots, pans, cutlery and crockery, is kept on-site. Etali has long provided its chefs and waitstaff with training on kosher requirements, and we give annual refresher training to keep current with the latest requirements.
Before you arrive, we ask about your food preferences and any special requirements beyond what is necessary to keep kosher. We’ll source the highest quality kosher ingredients, including kosher wines, beers and liquor, from our suppliers in Johannesburg. The ingredients are fresh and ready for your arrival so that your personal kosher-trained chef can prepare Kosher meals of the highest quality.
When you arrive, one of our kosher-trained chefs will be dedicated to you and will be at your disposal. Your chef will offer suggested meals and will work with you each day to create a kosher menu that exceeds your expectations.
The additional cost for this service is R750 per adult per day, and R375 per child per day. (This does not include the costs of a Mashgiach or supervisor. The related flights, transfer costs and accommodation required for the Mashgiach are for the guests’ account.)
