We had a lovely lunch with my teenage children & their 2 friends. The service was great & the views from the deck restaurant was beautiful. We had burgers, toasted sandwiches, calamari and chicken schnitzel and everyone was very happy with their medals.

Had dinner here one evening on route to Mozambique. Very friendly service and great food together with a fantastic view over the river and Kruger Park. Floodlights after dark creates the opportunity that one still sees animals coming down to drink even way after sunset!

Best Kudu Steak and red wine sauce we've ever eaten. The prawn rissoles were also awesome. Service was fantastic.

Was a great setting although you got second hand cigarette smoke from the people smoking on the adjacent lawn which spoilt the dinner and venue a lot. Food was average for what South African can offer. Atmosphere was great though

Regret delay in answering. This has only come to my attention now. I suggest you check with the resort. I seem to recall someone on duty in the morning on a Sunday.

Idealic views of mother nature literally at the end of your table. Enjoy lunch or dinner with the elephants, rhinos, buffalo and an abundance of birdlife just a few meters from you. You will have to travel far and wide to find what we offer.
