Chicken, lamb, beef or pork are usually served at lunch and dinner as well as fish and vegetarian dishes. Breakfast is a buffet with lots of tropical fruits, hot and cold cereals, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, breads and pastries and eggs to order.

Lunch can be either buffet or served at the table and always starts with soup (If you are off for a wildlife viewing your guide will bring a lunch box with you). During your safari time, lunch will be served sometime in lunchbox prepared by the hotel you overnighted.Dinner is usually a 4 or 5 course sit-down affair, although there is no need to dress up. Often your safari guide will join you at meals as you recall your day’s events.
