Food and drink

Dining at Ulusaba

At Ulusaba dining is a very important part of your stay. 

Our internationally renowned chefs have developed numerous pan-African dishes influenced by many African cultures, flavours and spices. Our recipes are constantly refreshed and consist of seasonal, local ingredients. 

All meals and drinks are included in your rates, and with at least six opportunities per day to eat, we promise you won’t go hungry! 

Dining throughout the day 

Dine by firelight, candlelight or starlight. Feast on a traditional Braai in the heart of the bush or sample the local specialties overlooking the animals wandering by below.  

All our breads and pastries are home-baked daily, and breakfasts and lunches are organised restaurant-style, but in the evenings, guests dine together at communal tables, comparing notes on the animals they spotted that day!  

Of course, if you’d like a more intimate experience, we’d be delighted to organise private dining for you. 

In the bush  

Just because you’re away from the lodges doesn’t mean the culinary experience can’t travel with you. 

Freshly baked goodies await before you set off on the morning game drive, and we might surprise you with a few more treats while you’re in the middle of the bush, from pancake stops to bush dinners under the stars lit by torches and a flaming log fire.  

During the evening game drives your ranger and tracker will pick a spot for some refreshing sundowners to ease into the evening meal. 

Wine tastings  

Wine lovers needn't do without - we have a well-stocked wine cellar at Safari Lodge and in the lounge at Rock Lodge, and our tailored wine tastings are a must.  

Our wine experience starts with us establishing your personal tastes. South Africa has an excellent reputation for wine worldwide and naturally we’re keen to showcase some of the best local vintages on offer.  

You’ll find wines from tiny family-owned cellars, traditional bigger names and some newer, equally impressive small producers, with wines from organic and biodynamic producers.


We have a great range of child-friendly meals. Your Cubs (that’s the children) can choose from a selection of tasty, well balanced, healthy and fun meals keeping both parents and Cubs happy!
