Old Mondoro is full of flavour. Where elephants visit at lunch, dinner is enjoyed under the stars,and each meal caters to all tastes. The excellent cuisine, oft described as an Afro/Euro fusion, caters for most palates with aplomb.

Menus and recipes have been developed and enhanced over time with a view to balance health, variety and some indulgence – you are on holiday after all!

Under the stars or on a boat in the middle of the Zambezi

Our imaginative camp chefs ensure meals are of the highest standard despite the remote and basic conditions in the bush. Vegetarians, vegans, gluten free, and lactose intolerant diets are all well catered for with advance notice.

Depending on the time of year and the day’s activities, breakfasts, brunches and lunches are served plated, or hot and cold buffet style, usually al-fresco, sometimes in the bush, and even on a boat in the middle of the Zambezi!

Afternoon tea with sweet and savoury snacks is usually served overlooking the river and just prior to the afternoon safari activities.

Dinners are multiple courses at this exclusive “Zambian Restaurant”, table d’hote, always offered with a choice of main course, and usually served under the stars or by the camp fire.
