From crocodile to kudu and more, this is a dinning experience that every traveler should do. The food is tasty and keeps on coming.

Took some business visitors for a meal at the carnivore, the day after they had been to Pilansberg Game Reserve. A bit taken aback to be eating what they had viewed the day before. Good service, friendly staff and generally a nice atmosphere.
