“Our lunch at the Elephant Cafe was one of the absolute highlights of our trip to Africa. Meeting the rescue elephants was thrilling–we got to pet them, feel their mighty tusks, and smile as they reached out to us with their trunks for food. We have adorable photos with the baby! Then we were escorted onto this beautiful deck over the river and handed a champagne cocktail before being seated for lunch, so very pleasant. The prix fixe, three-course meal was absolutely fabulous, first class–like nothing I expected to find anywhere in Africa. Lunch was unique because it included surprising elements of local fruits and flavors which we found intriguing and delightful. And watching monkeys cavorting in the trees and hippos puffing in the water below while we sipped our cappuccinos, well, it was a glorious end to a truly exceptional experience.” – Cynthia Morris, Bluemont, Virginia, USA
