Safari Lodges Launch Local Cuisine Menus

Safari lodges have increased local cuisine on their menus after the growing demand from international travellers.

One of the benefits of featuring more local produce on safari menus is that lodges are able to support neighbouring rural communities and create sustainable economic opportunities for them by buying their produce.

Linda van Rensburg, group food experience manager, Wilderness Safaris, highlighted that American and European guests are particularly interested in the culinary aspects of their safari.

“Our guests are well travelled and exposed to amazing restaurant and celebrity chefs through television and social media. They often have access to both quality ingredients and lessons, so they are cooking more at home and show a greater interest in how the food is prepared and where it comes from,” said van Rensburg.
