Dining on the Upper Deck

Share a convivial and delectable meal with friends under the African sky, wallow under the luminous Milky Way best seen from Africa.

All culinary delights are fresh, thoughtfully prepared and served with flair and pride

Given the remoteness of the location, the gourmet meals the chef produced were astounding. Without the facilities to keep food hot, he prepares and cooks each course while you are enjoying the preceding one. Yet there are no unwanted delays, and he produces exotic dishes that are superbly done, freshly served and piping hot. I could not have been more impressed.
