From a candlelit dinner in an old shepherd’s hut to idyllic picnics and an elegant al fresco meal in the walled garden, the River Boma dining experience at Bushmans Kloof is part of the exceptional range of private dining options available on the reserve. Whatever setting our guests choose, they are guaranteed an evening of discovery and delight where stunning settings, exquisite cuisine and the knowledge that you’re in a very special place are all the ingredients required for a sensational dinner.

The experience starts as you make your way down to the riverbank, guided by a lantern lit pathway that leads you to an immaculately set table for two, surrounded by more lanterns. The ultimate romantic and intimate setting, you can relish your unique surroundings accompanied by the orchestral sounds of the resident frogs and crickets.

Throughout the course of the evening, you’ll be attended to by your own dedicated waiter, who’ll take care of your every need. Each Boma Dinner menu is individually curated by our Executive Chef to showcase the best fresh, seasonal produce grown in our own walled garden as well as the local area and the five course menu is paired with a flight of wines from our sister property at Bouchard Finlayson. As the sun slowly sets, raise a glass of exceptional South African wine—the perfect toast to an unforgettable evening.
