Loved this place, atmosphere excellent, the animal sounds the information and the life size African animals fantastic, we had African Samosas, plus Hummingbird cake my god the best, topped off with Pinna Colada but without alcohol as we were driving. Wow excellent for a day to relax in something Soo different. Cheryl and Bob great hosts and hostess full of information so relaxing.

Such a lovely hideaway for an afternoon. Went for a light lunch of Bob's famous samosas (absolutely great!!). Stayed for an afternoon tea of beautifully cooked scones with jam and cream. Mine hosts Bob and Cheryl made us feel at home. The African theme is magnificent. So delightful and only a short drive in between Adelaide and Murray Bridge. Would have to be one of the best places for afternoon tea I have found in the whole of South Australia

Open Sat & Sun 11-5. Oct- end of April

Quaint, intimate, hidden oasis, our  African themed gardens serves coffee, hot & cold drinks,  bites, and  alcohol.

Here, you can enjoy a coffee, scone or somosa, in the Safari Tent,  beer, wine or even a Gin in the Karibu Bar,  or just chill out in the wildlife gardens where we also enjoy a chat.  

We also accept weekday group bookings, so please ring if interested.    

Each season we open our home & gardens to the public as our way of raising money to support  Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, who rescue, rehabilitate & reintegrate orphan elephants & Rhino back to the wild. 
We have traveled over Africa for 20 years, living with the Maasai in Kenya for much of that time. You can find our story in our main travel site
