Have you ever wondered what makes up a typical day in a luxury safari lodge in Africa? Apart from the excitement of sighting one of the Big Five while out on a game drive or guided walk in the bush, there is much more to what makes the safari experience so special and memorable.
One of the most important factors that can make or break your getaway adventure is the food and service at the lodge where you’re staying.
Donovan van Staden, Group Executive Chef for Sanctuary Retreats, is responsible for training the chefs and has compiled this mouthwatering collection of recipes that feature on the menus of the lodges, which are set in exotic locations such as the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda, the Masai Mara in Kenya, and the Okavango Delta in Botswana.
The book is divided into chapters that cover the food served throughout a safari day, from the early-morning biscuits before you depart on the first game drive, to breakfast, lunch and dinner, with afternoon tea, sundowner snacks and canapés in between. The food photography is a feast for the eyes and the accompanying images of the lodges, their friendly and hospitable staff, the magnificent locations and wildlife will have you cooking up a storm to invoke the safari experience or will see you planning your next holiday to one of these remarkable establishments.
