In the ancient San language the word ‘Makana’ means ‘to feast’, and this dining area was designed to emulate the sheltered ambience of an open-fronted cave. Natural stone walls enclose an elegant and luxurious lounge with twin fireplaces. The al fresco dining area overlooks sweeping lawns to the babbling Boontjies River and the wilderness beyond.
Makana is also the ideal venue for a leisurely, traditional high tea. On warm evenings enjoy a candlelit dinner, with choice of succulent grills and organic vegetables. Complement your meal with our consummate wine selection and let your spirit drift over the gentle sounds and magnificent views of an African dusk.
"Good food should be unfussy. It should be something that is both exciting and accessible to all guests. The fresher an ingredient is the better, and if it can be locally sourced, even more so!"
Executive Chef, Ryan Wreakly
