Dining Dining

Our Executive Chef perfectly matches menus with a relaxed informal mood, using local ingredients, adding an elegant twist to South African traditions, experimenting with new flavours. But if you come back from a long adventure and just fancy the best grilled cheese sandwich, simply ask.



Breakfasts are served with panoramic views of the waterhole, and at whatever time suits your plans. Watch giraffe or roan and sable antelope as you eat.

At sunset, sundowners can be followed by bush dinners, feet in the sand, as you enjoy a true Kalahari feast. Or our interpretation of a traditional “boma” braai, with delicious venison, spicy chakalaka and morogo, our local spinach.

Perhaps, one evening, choose a romantic dinner on your private deck with a vintage wine and a telescope for gazing at the stars.




Our elegant meals are complemented by an award-winning wine list which features some of the very best South African wines; we recently received a Platinum award from the Diners Club Wine List Awards for the imagination of our selection.

Our service aims to be gentle yet meticulous.

“This unobtrusive professionalism is the special quality of Tswalu.”
