The camp gives you a wakeup call along with a morning tea or coffee in bed. You can move to game drives right after your morning tea to have breakfast in the bushes with your guide. The breakfast and lunch are also served in the main dining area of the camp, but the safari style dining is far more exciting on the move. The ingredients used are fresh and vegetarian dishes are available on request. The lodge has a variety of international wines to select from. The dinner is most popular out in the open under the starlit sky.
