Dining

Pax dining on S. African buffett Inspired Cuisine — Every Day of Your Trip
Whether you’re dining on gourmet fare in your hotel’s restaurant; enjoying the flavors and cultural exchange of a home-hosted meal of local items; or indulging in a buffet overflowing with fresh produce, cheeses, and international favorites, mealtime is an experience to be savored. All meals give you a varied, authentic experience that reflects the true Africa.

Dining on Safari. Meals in Southern Africa generally consist of abundant meat dishes – beef, lamb, chicken, ostrich, venison, and seafood – and are served as a set menu or buffet.

Special Dinners. You’ll venture into the bush to enjoy a memorable torch-lit dinner by the Zambezi River. Savor a traditional lunch in the township of Soweto. And gather together for our special welcome and farewell meals, festive affairs that celebrate your destination and revel in the shared experience of your small group.

Home-hosted Visits Give You a Taste of Local Life
Wherever you travel, one of the best ways to connect with local people is to share a meal, snack, or coffee — with a side of conversation. Whether you’re having tea in a family home, sharing a farmhouse lunch, or attending a community-hosted meal, there's nothing more personal (or fun!) than bonding over food, and getting to know a little about each others' lives. In fact, most of our travelers report that their home-hosted experience was a highlight of their adventure. While in Victoria Falls, you'll join a local Zimbabwean family at home for dinner. It will be a great opportunity to see how the people here live — and dine. 

healthy choice plateHealthy Choices at Every Meal
Along with international fare, you’ll also find many American favorites and choices for the health-conscious. We are happy to accommodate any special dietary requests you may have, such as low-salt, low-fat, gluten-free, vegetarian, diabetic, and lactose-intolerant, provided your requests are received at the time of booking.
