The food was amazing and a great way to try wart hog or impala without having to eat alot. It's a buffet. They also have native music and we all got to try our hand at the drums.

The buffet was like any other nothing special. They did have a few interesting things on the menu, wart hog, and some kind of caterpillar. It was kinda like a luau in Hawaii. The drum lessons were fun. Everyone got their own drum to play.
