We are fortunate to have beautiful herbs and seasonal produce from our plot, which form the inspiration for all our meals. Menus are focused on clean flavours, offering fresh and light meals that are a departure from the heavier, more traditional fare typically found at game lodges.
It was the enticing home-grown produce from the camp’s veggie garden that added to the appeal of working for Shenton Safaris, says Head Chef Catherine Garden, who’s been with us since 2017. “Not only do I take inspiration from our spectacular setting, but the bountiful fare that comes in daily from the plot.”
Catherine has worked throughout South Africa and spent five years in Tanzania, honing her skills as a phenomenal chef dedicated to providing nutritious food that feeds the body and soul.
Catherine always surprised us with her brunch and dinner menus. The food was outstanding and we are waiting for her to publish a book! Breakfast in The Ebony Grove was magical. ~ Steve W, Trip Advisor, travelled October 2022
