Mouthwatering Meals


South African cuisine is as diverse as its population and the menus carefully created by Kaingo's chefs reflect this. Our chefs are adept at crafting cuisine that will appeal to any palate, be that sweet tooth, vegetarian, health fan or meat lover. Only fresh seasonal ingredients are used and prepared in the lodge kitchens every day.


Kaingo takes pride in catering for all dietary requirements. Please chat to us about this. To give us the opportunity to design appropriate menus, we ask that you advise us of any specific dietary requirements prior to arrival.



Breakfast under the trees


Have your breakfast under the trees while enjoying the antelope grazing nearby. We are renowned for our lovely breakfasts under the trees, where every detail is perfect, every mouthful is unforgettable and every moment is truly memorable.



Boma or bush dinner


There really is no experience that can replace a traditional African boma night. What can be better than enjoying the array of tastes from local traditional dishes and a glass of choice South African red wine? At Kaingo, we invite guests to dine the African way - in our traditional boma or in the middle of the bush. In the event of bad weather, meals are served in the Lodges' dining spaces.



Special occasion dining


Fine dining in the wild is an experience you'll never forget. At your request, our chefs and staff can create a bush-based private dining room where you'll eat beneath the sky, surrounded by the sights, sounds and sensations of glorious Africa.



Sunrise and sunset


A safari is made more special with its game drive stops, whether it's sunrise coffee and home-made biscuits or sunset wine, with crunchy crackers, biltong and tangy olives. To put it plainly, your familiar cuppa or refreshing cocktail will never taste the same again.
