Sani Lodge is home to the Giant's Cup Café which is well known for wholesome, homemade goodness.
Our policy is local procurement of South African foods, supporting local producers in our district as well as growing as many fruit and vegetables as we can in the summer months. This means that what you eat and drink in our restaurant directly supports all these producers and healthy motives.
We also have our own small herd of Jersey cows, famous for their rich creamy milk.
We offer a three course set menu every night.
The melodic sound of African drums will summon you to dinner at 6:30 pm.
Please note that dinner must be booked in advance and costs R165 / person.
Homemade Ice Cream
The best ice cream you’ll ever taste is made from our own organic fresh cream.
Using our own milk and probiotic cultures, our yoghurt is healthy and yummy.
Typical South African hard biscuit snack food or "Boerbiskuit" hailing back to the Voortrekker days. Ideal for dipping into a mug of tea or coffee!
When quantities allow, we also bottle fruit such as peaches and plums which we serve for desserts at the lodge as well as sell the surplus.
This is a speciality of the Underberg area.
On-site pottery handmade from local clay into beautiful crafts and functional ware. Original paintings on display. Traditional African crafts from South Africa and nearby Lesotho. Great for gifts and souvenirs.
When the fruit ripens, our kitchen becomes a hive of activity with bubbling pots and a multitude of sterilized jars! Our jams contain nothing but fruit and sugar, with as much of the fruit as possible being homegrown. These include peaches, raspberries, plums, apples, blackberries and gooseberries.
Pure local honey.
We make our own dairy products including a very tasty Gouda, rich cream cheese, yummy halloumi and pepper feta using our own organic milk.
