Several luxury lodges in Kruger offer indoor and outdoor dining areas. Two lodges – Rhino Post Safari Lodge and the Relais & Chateaux-affiliated Singita Sweni – even house wine cellars with various South African wines. Others, such as Lukimbi Safari Lodge, provide all meals, including those served in the bush and on the property's decks. And at Punda Maria, Mopani, Satara and other main rest camps, travelers can grab a bite to eat at South African- or American-inspired restaurants. Most lodge and main rest camp meals feature staples like braaivleis (grilled meats), mieliepap (maize porridge), morogo (wild spinach) and potjiekos (hearty meat, veggie and starch dishes prepared in cast iron pots over a fire).
Travelers can also prepare their own meals on grills found at most campsites. In permanent accommodations, cooking utensils and refrigerators are typically provided, and the bulk of main rest camps have retail shops that sell drinks, raw meat and snacks like beef jerky, chips and ice cream. What's more, safari tour operators – such as Nhongo Safaris, Outlook Safaris and Funky Monkeys Backpackers & Safaris – usually include some or all meals in their rates. But keep in mind that a few tour operators do charge extra for alcoholic beverages.
