The Homestead is the heart of the lodge; the dining room and terrace area is a haven of old-world charm and elegance, augmented by our outstanding private art collection. This formal dining room has an air of warmth and splendid luxury. A full complement of attentive staff present specialities offered from the Executive Chef’s table d’hôte menu. Dishes are a feast for all the senses, served in an atmosphere of conviviality and true South African hospitality.
Mingle with other guests at the congenial bar, or sink into relaxation in one of the two relaxing lounges. One invites intimate fireside chats, while the other is equipped with a flat-screen TV where you might take in a live sports match or enjoy a film or documentary. Here you’ll also find our well-stocked library, filled with novels, non-fiction and a fascinating selection of Africana, as well as a comprehensive collection of wildlife films.
"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, Charles Hayward
