In African culture, food and meals are an important time of the day to sit down, enjoy and spend time together with the family. We at Sibuya embody this – and make the most of every meal time, whether it be a braai-dinner or a South African themed lunch buffet.

Lisette Ovens, our Camp manager, has shared one of her famous recipes with us so that you can bring a little bit of Africa into your home.
