03 Mar Mabula’s African Cuisine with an Indian Twist
Mabula’s culinary team is well-known for bright smiles and their great sense of humour. Their love for both food and people brings the Mabula Game Lodge dining experience to life.
Our team has an almost limitless repertoire of both African and other worldly cuisine, including mild Indian dishes. The menu changes everyday, with new and exciting tastes for guests to experience. For those who prefer something a little spicier, one word to the culinary team and they will personally create a special dish for them.
A key member of Mabula’s culinary team is an Indian chef from Bihar in Northern India, who gained invaluable hospitality experience at the five-star Bogmallo Beach Resort in Goa for 5 years, before moving to South Africa in 2010 to satisfy his yearning for new adventures in tourism. He has built up a formidable reputation with his delicious Indian cuisine over the last seven years and delights in combining elements from the different culinary cultures he has experienced to create the ideal dining experience for each and every one of our guests. He is not just fluent in the language of food, but he is equally comfortable conversing with guests in many of India’s main languages Hindi, Gujarati and Konkani.
“The menu changes everyday, with new and exciting tastes for guests to experience”
The Mabula restaurants are able to prepare Indian-style dishes effortlessly from both North and South India, including Jain, Bihar and Gujarat. These are made using a traditional Tandoor oven which adds an authentic touch that is often missing in other lodges.
Our guests can enjoy a light lunch amidst the call of grey loeries on the terrace, retire to the lodge’s main Ko Bojelong restaurant or savour a scrumptious dinner under the stars in Mabula Game Lodge’s traditional boma dining venue accompanied by the rhythmic beat of traditional African dancers. Small or large, sophisticated or loud, Mabula Game Lodge will create a fuss-free African bush event to exceed your expectations.
