There is a somewhat almost primal joy about eating a meal in the raw wilderness of the African savannah. Just picture it; enjoying a sumptuous meal with your views framed by stunning landscapes and magnificent wildlife. It could be near the river’s edge with hippos grunting and jostling below or on the vast sweeping plains with expansive views of the magnificent home of the wild. There is certainly nothing more thrilling than bush dining.
Nothing beats freshly brewed coffee with pancakes and eggs whilst watching the sun light up the Masai mara landscape bring it to life. Your bush breakfast is arranged at specially designated sites within Masai Mara normally outside of but very near your safari lodge or camp. No fellow diners: just you, the chef and your driver. Sip champagne and fill up on buffet delicacies whilst enjoying panoramic views.
A picnic lunch is usually arranged during a full day Masai mara game drive so you don’t have to go back to your safari camp or lodge for lunch. Though the meal itself is typically simple but satisfying, the often scenic setting in the wild makes this a truly memorable meal.
Ending your day on Safari with your favourite drink in hand, the company of friends or loved ones and a gorgeous sunset unfolding right before your eyes is a very special experience indeed. That’s what you get when you go for a sundowner safari and bush dinner in Masai Mara. Enjoy dinner in the wild as a campfire, lanterns, and the gorgeous starlit bush sky light up your night. Your safari lodge staff will carefully serve you freshly prepared gourmet food prepared using fresh local produce with international influences and accompanied with fine wines. To make it an unforgettable African bush dining experience, a group of local Maasai men and women will entertain you with their traditional songs and dances that blend with the sounds of the untamed bush. Just sit back, relax and soak up the final minutes of what will be yet another day full of adventure.
Many properties in Masai Mara now offer sundowner safari and bush dining either pre-included into your stay or as optional add-on activities. If you’d like to enjoy this unique dining experience, get in touch with us and will include it in your Kenya safari package.
