Safari Dining

Using original Italian recipes passed down from the owner ‘Stefano Cheli’s mother, Elephant Pepper Camp’s cuisine includes a mouth-watering combination of homemade pastas, traditional Italian recipes such as Melanzane Parmigiana and Osso Bucco, and fresh organic salads.

One of the joys of being on safari is to eat together and share your daily adventures with other guests. Communal dining is the normal practice at Elehant Pepper Camp, although private romantic dinners can also be arranged on request.

Meal times are as follows:

Breakfast 06.30-10.30 (although most guests enjoy a picnic breakfast while out on their morning game drive)

Lunch 13.00-14.30. Guests normally return from their morning game drive for lunch in camp, although we often provide picnic lunches for those doing a full day out.

Dinner 20.00 – 21.30. The evening time at camp begins with drinks and bitings around the camp fire, followed by a candlelit dinner in the dining tent.

Elephant Pepper Camp is happy to cater to special diets such as vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, etc. Please ask your agent to inform us in advance though, so that the camp managers can prepare for your arrival.
