In the evening you and your guests can relax in the snug, or the garden with a Banana Cup—traditional African cocktail—alongside freshly prepared appetisers whilst listening to the sounds of the Serengeti as dinner is carefully prepared by your private chef. During the stay, guests will be treated to a Kentish meal with locally-sourced ingredients and on the second evening the cuisine will be African fusion.
