Safari Dining

Elsas-Kopje-Meru-Salad-LunchElsa’s Kopje is renowned for its delicious cuisine. With sumptuous fresh salads and pastas for lunch, combining North Italian recipes with more unusual dishes (such as crispy Tempura Vegetables, Aubergine, Feta and Tomato Stacks with Parmesan ‘Snaps’ and Danish Layer Cake), meals here are simply heaven…

Using fresh salads and herbs from its own garden, and serving homemade bread freshly baked in the camp’s own traditional outdoor pizza oven, you will feel absolutely spoiled.

At Elsa’s Kopje, guests eat on their own individual tables (unlike some safari camps which offer communal dining). Dinner is almost always outside, with candlelit tables laid out under the stars. Private romantic dinners can also be arranged.
