We ate 3 dinners at the Deck in July 2016 and the food and service were great. We returned in 2017 but alas, the service has deteriorated.

Good food with amazing views. Advise to book a table at the end of the pier to take in the lovely sunsets and views.

Idealic views of mother nature literally at the end of your table. Enjoy lunch or dinner with the elephants, rhinos, buffalo and an abundance of birdlife just a few meters from you. You will have to travel far and wide to find what we offer.
