If the weather outside is looking glum, you’re probably daydreaming about where to take your family this holiday. The blue skies in South Africa and the friendly staff at Grootbos are waiting to receive you with a warm welcome.
Nothing says Africa quite like a dinner under the stars around an open fire. And nothing says South Africa quite like a braai (Afrikaans for “barbecue”). Cooking quality meat on an open fire is the “Rainbow Nation’s” favourite pastime, shared by all demographic groups. Whether you are white or black, rich or poor, gathering around a fire with family and friends is always a blessed and joyful occasion.
At Grootbos we like to celebrate this tradition with a touch of class and a dash of magic. A midsummer night at our Boma offers a quintessentially African experience with a generous dose of 5-star service. Retaining the fine dining experience but utilising the unique flavours of open-fire cooking, the Boma dinners are a mixed grill a la spectacular. After your choice of starters help yourself to a selection of beef fillet, marinated sirloin, lamb cutlets, chicken and prawn skewers, roasted vegetables and much more. Top it off with a desert of your choice and a locally produced bottle of wine. A midsummer night at the Boma will have you feeling right at home . . . in Africa.
Grootbos is not just an eco paradise but also a culinary destination in its own right. From fine dining in our sophisticated restaurants to picnics on the beach, Grootbos offers a diversity of spectacular settings to enjoy the best of South African cuisine. While today we celebrate the warm summer nights at the Boma, be sure to also have a look at our Wine Cellar and Red Indigo menu.
