Sundowner sweet spot on the Sabie

Dining in the wild, eating in the outdoors, al fresco dinners and safari picnics are often the most magical and memorable experiences one can have on safari holiday in South Africa. You’re invited to join us at Hippo Hollow Country Estate for our Sabie River Bridge Sunset Dinner – an incomparable dining experience in Hazyview.

The evening begins with a welcome cocktail – a martini with hints of coconut, mango and of course Amarula. This is followed by a delectable starter platter featuring spring rolls, lamb frikkadels and crocodile kebabs.

Your main meal is completed on a mini coal cooker brought to your table. Highlights include ostrich fillet with raspberry and red peppercorn marmalade, slow cooked springbok potjie, kingklip and zucchini kebabs with wood roasted vegetables, corn and sweet potatoes.

For dessert, indulge in a selection of mini South African sweet treats, including koeksisters, vetkoek and mini milk tarts. You can find the full menu below.
