What can I expect?

What might the possible menu be?

Malay food is absolutely delicious and so we are sure that whatever you eat you will love it! From bobotie (a South African dish consisting of deliciously spiced minced meat baked with an egg-based topping) to bredies (fragrant slow-cooked stews) to koesisters (coconut dusted doughnuts). Our mouths are watering simply thinking of it!

What about alcohol?

Alcohol may or may not be served. This is up to your host and depends on their custom. Remember, you are there to experience their way of life so whatever they typically do so will you.

What will my host be like?

Is this a child friendly experience?

All our hosts adore children, and you could very well be dining with their kids too. We do however request that you do not bring any wild animals along, remember, this is Africa and we have more than enough of our own.
