Bongos has a great atmosphere with good food and friendly service. It is a wonderful setting on a summers day to sit on the deck and enjoy the rays of sun while sipping on your liquid refreshment of choice. They have a large variety of pizzas to choose from. The restaurant is situated in the heart of the Wilderness Village... More

We spent a great night with friends at Bongos while on our way to Cape Town. The staff are very welcoming and friendly, the food is delicious and the drinks don't stop until late! We will be stopping on our way back for a mushroom pizza and a few kirruptions!
