Wine & Dine
You may want to marvel at the canopy of stars on a clear night, whilst dining outdoors. For a wild culinary experience, submerge yourself in the glory of the African night skies as you dine beneath the clear glow of a galaxy of stars while the roar of an open-air fire core ensures your comfort. Mateya Safari Lodge will invite you to a royal feast and a demonstration of expert culinary skills. With the freshest produce offered straight from the earth and the finest cuisine you will find your palate transported on a journey of African fusion and gastronomic delight.
The Mateya Safari Lodge wine cellar is also available for private dining, offering a more distinctly elegant setting. And for a spectacular view of the plains, both the glass-walled main dining room and lounge deck afford uninterrupted panoramas of the reserve. Of course, bush picnic lunches are available on request and on all guided walking safaris.
Lingering flavors of the palate may be sampled from the extensive assortment of wines housed in the cool atmosphere of the Mateya Safari Lodge Cellar.
An impressive collection of both esteemed local and rare French wines and champagnes make up the cellar’s
8 000 bottles of indulgence that lie chaste, waiting to be hand picked by Mateya Safari Lodge guests as an accompaniment to their dining. Select a brandy, a cognac or a single malt whiskey with a cigar from our humidor as the perfect conclusion to a pristine Mateya dining experience.
