Bush Dinner Experience - A truly unforgettable experience, you will be taken deep into the bush in the open game viewer stopping at the gorge for a sundowner. Further down the valley is the bush Lapa, perched on the edge of a huge granite boulder, where a crackling fire and delicious canapés await your arrival. Dinner is served under the canopy of the night sky with only the sounds of the trilling nightjars to accompany the tranquillity.

Delivered to your cottage, all you must do is warm them up, open a bottle of our fine wine, and enjoy!
