Ethos African Snippets

Food Glorious Food!  Food whilst on safari is plentiful – you will never have to worry about going hungry!  Whether that comprises of your early morning coffee and traditional South Africa rusks - not a Farley’s rusk that you had as a child, but more of a biscotti, this is a twice baked biscuit and a staple whilst out on safari.

Some however say that the most important meal of the day is your breakfast, and most would agree that there is nothing better than breakfast after an early morning safari.  The Ethos clients all handle breakfast differently, but we can vouch for each and every one of them offering something quite divine, that we have personally tasted ourselves!

Machaba Safaris

Enjoy breakfast on the banks of the Zambezi while you bask in the soft morning sunshine.  Take in the melodic rumblings of the river, as dappled light from overhanging trees dance across the table, and the smell of fresh coffee awakens your senses.  Surrender to nature’s tranquillity.

Stay 3 and pay 2 are available across all of the Machaba properties as follows:

Botswana Camps - 15 Nov – 31 March (Excluding 20 Dec – 06 Jan inclusive)
Mana Pools (Ingwe Pan and Mana River Camp) - 01 May - 30 June
Hwange (Verney’s Camp and Deteema Springs) - 15 November – 31 March (Excluding 20 December – 06 January inclusive)

Kambaku Lodges

When it comes to food, Kambaku pride themselves in being sustainable and supporting local producers.  Our goal has and always will to ensure we make as small of an impact on the environment around us.

All of our fresh produce is grown and supplied by Benica Fruits and Veggies.

Stay 4 pay 3 for the months of April, May, June, September, October & November 2023


Breakfast at Garonga never disappoints, but then how could it when you have a traditional Full English on the menu!  This really does spoil those who are ravenous when they come back from 3 hours in the fresh air on the back of an open safari vehicle.  Do not despair however if you are watching the waistline as there is always a healthier option with fresh fruit, yoghurt, compote and muesli in abundance as well.

Please note that Fed Air are increasing their rates from 1st March 2023.  Any bookings made before 01st March will still keep the same rates even if the flight is after 01st March.

Majeka House

Breakfast at Majeka House is a true luxury and reason enough to stay at this lovely boutique hotel in Stellenbosch.  Lloyd and Karine are foodies at heart and this is showcased in their lavish display of local wares ranging from fresh juices to homemade pastries.  If this is not enough then the a la carte hot breakfast option can see you enjoying eggs benedict or smoked trout with a glass of bubbles from a nearby vineyard.  Delicacies that truly make a hotel stay!
