Cuisine and Dining
We consider superb cuisine to be an essential part of the Londolozi experience and it is a vital component of our philosophy. Much of the day revolves around specifically crafted culinary delights: morning morsels on the game drive, fortifying breakfast and lunch, and an indulgent high tea before sundowner treats on the evening game drive and finally, a traditional fireside banquet or a private dinner.
The choice of ingredients reflects our efforts to establish a respectful relationship with the planet. Each ingredient is chosen with care, favouring home grown organic produce, free range game, and herbs from our kitchen garden to create dishes that are irresistibly delicious and healthy. Our selection of seafood is guided by the Southern African Sustainable Seafood Initiative and the number of imported ingredients is kept to a minimum.
Our recipes are a source of great pride; many have been handed down through the Varty family, while others were created in the Londolozi kitchen.
