Kopano Lodge, Madikwe Safari Lodge. Food, glorious food!


"FOOD...SO MUCH FOOD",
my wife Carolyn was surprised by the fact that the Lodge serves
three meals and a high tea each day.


From sunrise...


to sunset...


There is food on offer.
This home-made bread is from the lunch we were served on arrival.


And not just a sandwich...
a proper meal.
My choice:
Beer battered line fish, served with rustic cut potatoes and a salad


This is what my wife chose:
Pasta with a Napolitano sauce, roasted cherry tomatoes and basil pesto


The dessert was rather interesting:
Melon "soup" with ice-cream and chocolate drops.
Certainly a different taste to what I was expecting.


Lunch on Day 2
Carolyn chose:
Grilled vegetables with haloumi salad


While my choice from the menu was:
Foccacio
Beef pastrami, pinapple chutney with potato chips


High tea...
biscuits, tartlets, deep fried mushrooms and smoked salmon.


And a VERY tasty home made caramel cake


And it was not only the Chef that cooked up a storm.
Our ranger, Max, brought out a gas stove and whipped up this
tasty beef snack on a game drive.


Lots of home-baked bread on offer with each meal


My dinner on the first night...
Grilled Eland, vegetables and sweet potato croquettes.
Delicious.


As per usual, my wife and I always choose different mains,
and that way we get to taste two separate dishes.
This is pan-fried chicken supreme with a mushroom risotto cake
and roasted peppers.
Another top rated plate.
For those who do not eat meat, there was a vegetarian option.
Aside from the vegetarian/vegan dietary requirements,
the lodge can cater for specific needs if given advance warning


Strawberry and vanilla Panna Cota with crumble and a berry coulis
ended off a very fine dining experience. 


What a start to our mornings...
And yes there were the usual hot breakfast choices on offer


As the weather was ideal, we were able to enjoy a Boma dinner.
Always great for both local and International tourists alike.


Bush TV...


A surprise meal on one of the morning game drives.


The meal was so tasty that even the staff were happy about it!
