food and drink

The quality of
food and drink in Africa
has improved enormously over the last decade.

Long gone are the days when you would travel to Africa with trepidation about diet.

In colonial times they used to say ... "If you can't boil it, bake it or peel it, then don't eat it!" To be honest this remained true in many areas all the way up to the 1990's. We remember having to take great care and travelling with all kinds of medicines.

This is mainly due to an increase in the number and quality of specialist producers, improvements in transport, much more widespread use of refrigeration and a huge improvement in the training of kitchen staff.

Hygiene has also massively improved, enabling a much wider range of foods to be served without a corresponding increase in dietary problems.

On the whole you can expect food to be somewhere between average to good, occasionally very good. The exception is in South Africa, where areas such as Cape Town and Franschhoek have a worldwide reputation for fine dining and Michelin starred restaurants are not uncommon.

Special diets such as vegetarian, vegan, kosher and halal can usually be catered for in most locations, but you do need to let us know when making your reservation in order that we can provide the lodges with sufficient warning.
