For special occasions, bush dinners are the ‘order of the day’, combining the enjoyment of superb food with the tranquillity of the bushveld. Mabula also boasts superb Indian Cuisine especially prepared by their authentic Indian Chef. Attention to detail and creative flair is part and parcel of Mabula Game Lodge’s menu, adding richness and value to tantalise and accommodate all tastes.
