Twilight at the Lapa Restaurant - an unforgettable African Dining experience

Wood smoke rises from the crackling central fire pit. Under the widespread branches of the giant trees of the Sabie riverine woodland, the tables are laid out and lit by lanterns.

The grills are laden with cheesy rooster broodjies and favourite South African braai meats such as boerewors, ribbetjies and tjops. The boom of a big brass gong invites you into the Lapa Restaurant to enjoy a leisurely three-course meal under the stars.

The lapa is a traditional African space for coming together and sharing culture. It’s a place of connection and celebration. At Kruger Gate Hotel, feasting at the Lapa Restaurant is the perfect finale to a thrilling day in the wilds of Kruger. You can relax, reminisce about the day’s wildlife adventures and tuck into a delicious, nourishing meal. There’s a wide choice from popular local dishes such as casseroles and curries to a range of international cuisines like pastas and stir-fry dishes made to order. Whatever your eating preferences, there’s plenty on offer for vegetarians and pescatarians as well as child-friendly options. Every evening, the Lapa Restaurant’s new refrigerated Deli Room is well-stocked with crisp salads, cheese boards and desserts including our Chef’s selection of homemade ice-creams and the freshly baked cake of the day.

After dinner, you can gather around the glowing fire for a night cap, where guests share their safari stories and make fireside memories of their nights in the African bush, which they will treasure for a lifetime.
