What can i say, such an inviting place to visit. The hosts and owners of this establishment have brought their African experiences and passion to life in this beautifully laid out garden cafe. Food and beverages were tasty. Very friendly and welcoming. A real art gallery featuring just not outside in the gardens but photos and apparels around to view or purchase.

Discovered this place by accident recently and went there today for the first time - absolutely delightful, one of those places you just love to discover. Modest menu but beautiful African themed gardens and house, with a gift shop and lots of photos and info about the owner's African travels. Had a lovely early afternoon tea. Plan to return for a Dinner under the stars soon.

It’s really is difficult to find words of praise re the quietly of the seating layout, service, coffee, drinks and an array of delicious food. It’s really worth the drive to Callington a country town an hours drive from Adelaide.

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
