We had a family evening meal. Buffet food but good quality mix of Indian and African food. Good, friendly service but expensive compared to independent restaurants in town.

I had a working lunch with colleagues at the Baobab, inside the African Tulip Hotel, and it was altogether a positive experience.

Probably the best service we had of all the lodges we visited on our 9 day safari. We were waited on hand and foot and they were more than helpful with my handicapped mother (they carried her plate at the buffet) We wanted for nothing...beautiful place and beautiful people...Special shout out to Anjul who went above and beyond for us!!!

The quality and variety of food was amazing. For breakfast there are hot food options on one part of the buffet, cereal and cold food options on another and a person who makes omelettes and other eggs.
