At Sanbona Gondwana Family Lodge, attention is paid to every detail - and this is also reflected in the cuisine. The philosophy of head chef Tim du Preez is to capture the diverse flavours of the Klein Karoo, combine them in unusual ways and thus create a culinary adventure on the plate. He only uses ingredients that he has lovingly grown and produced himself or that come from farmers and food producers in the immediate vicinity of the lodge. This makes each dish unique, which guests can enjoy either in the lodge's dining area or under the vast African starry sky in the traditional boma.
