There is nothing quite as romantic as a private dinner in the bush.

They offer a quiet moment with your partner to look back on the excitement of the day while our excellent food and wine make these special dinners even more memorable.
There’s very little in this world that can compare to the beauty of an African sunset, especially on safari. That’s why we ensure that on every evening game drive we stop at a special spot in the bush to set up sundowners for you to take it all in. It’s one of the iconic African experiences that’s made even more enjoyable and memorable in the arms of a loved one.
