Candlelit dinner underneath the stars at Fig Tree.


Tuck in to a delicious impala casserole or an exquisite vegetarian dish. Mabula Game Lodge serves up a staggering array of delicious dishes to tempt your vegetarian or carnivorous palate.

An unbelievable array of salads, breads, roasts, fish and cold meats, not to mention traditional South African desserts will have you lingering at the buffet far longer than it should. You’ll never walk away hungry at Mabula Game Lodge!

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.

For special occasions, there’s nothing more magical than dining under the stars at one of Mabula’s legendary bush dinners; the flickering lights, the sounds of the African wilderness, traditional South African cuisine and great company combining to create a unique dining experience.

Choose from one of three special dining venues to make your event exceptional in every way. From traditional African wilderness-themed evening dinners under a 100-year-old Wild Fig tree to weddings at the open-air Shaya Moya offering astounding views over the plain. Small or large, sophisticated or loud, Mabula Game Lodge will create a fuss-free African bush event to exceed your expectations.
