It’s nearly that time of the year where everyone winds down and gets a chance to soak in some beautiful African sun and relax with friends and family. At the lodge, we have some special plans for our guests, to add a touch of magic to their festive season visit.
We’ll be decorating the entire lodge with Christmas decorations and fairy lights, with real pine Christmas trees in the entrance hall to welcome our guests with festive cheer.
Christmas day will see a large Bedouin tent being erected in the middle of the bush for a delicious and uniquely African high tea experience. Our guests will enjoy a selection of handmade sweet and savoury canapés, Christmas cake and delectable mince pies while taking in the sounds and sights of the unspoiled African wild. Drinks will also take on a festive adaptation as we switch from the usual offerings to refreshing champagne and a heart-warming eggnog.
The Christmas menu will feature fragrant and tantalizing gourmet starters and a choice of duck confit, coriander lamb or roasted butternut ravioli, followed by a selection of chocolate truffles, lemon tart, gorgonzola and mascarpone tart and layered cinnamon ice-cream and fruit cake to complete the dining experience.
New Year’s Eve promises to be gloriously indulgent as well, with caviar laden canapés and champagne to see our guests into next year.
We hope to see you next year for a perfectly tranquil visit to complete your 2014.
