    • bush lodge


      Bush Lodge's executive chef Wilfred Mtsali, has a wealth of world wide experience and describes his food as 'Contemporary African'. New international trends blend with traditional African fare to create a menu that is cutting edge yet comforting.

      The dishes range from South African braais (barbeques) to African mezze platters.


      Wilfred's trademark is cooking as much as possible freshly over the grills, capturing the freshness and barbeque taste that combine excellently with the fusion of fresh ingredients supplied daily.


      Wilfred is also very well trained in Indian vegetarian cuisine and caters to individual needs.

      The lodge's understated, earthy yet luxurious ambiences lends itself to cuisine that reflects the very latest international trends, prepared with fresh - often local - ingredients.


      Executive chef, Shaniel Dinna, currently prepares a menu that could best be described as 'Afro Asian'. The focus is on fresh South African produce with a delicate Asian twist. Each meal is carefully conceptualised taking into account the time of day, weather, dining setting and season.


      Dishes are prepared to look as good as they taste, with Sabi Sabi's seemingly unending bush the perfect backdrop for superb 5-Star dining.
