With breath-taking landscapes, dynamic wildlife and a unique cultural experience, Africa offers awe-inspiring holidays for all travellers. Whether you are young or old, single or with family, African safaris today can be tailor-made to suit each and every individual, and one thing’s for sure, you are guaranteed pure luxury. That’s right, in the heart of the wilderness you can enjoy sumptuous safari lodges complete with private bathrooms, large bedrooms, private verandas and even your own swimming pool.
If this wasn’t enough, the food provided is exquisite and offers a real taste of Africa. Served up by highly trained African chefs, it’s so much more than just a meal – it is a true indulgence of Africa’s wonderful culture. From succulent non-vegetarian dishes to hearty grains and juicy fruits, you can expect to sample an incredibly diverse range of cuisine.
One of the premier destinations for a luxury safari experience is the country of Botswana. Dramatic contrasts of shimmering lagoons, blooming deserts and game rich national parks come together to bring a remote and luxurious safari experience. The camps and lodges in Botswana are intimate and the standard of guiding is excellent.
A mix of European style cuisine and traditional Botswanian food is served and Braai (African BBQs) are extremely popular. The Braai take place outside your accommodation where you will enjoy a variety of different goodies, fresh salad and vegetables and soft breads. To accompany your meal you can also expect a range of wine, spirits and local beers.
Here’s a simple yet delicious dessert recipe served at one of Botswana’s leading luxury lodges, Chobe Chilwero:
Soft and Fudgy Chocolate Brownies
300g caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
230g dark chocolate melted
Preheat your oven to 160 degrees Celsius.
Mix the butter and sugar together until fluffy, then add vanilla. Gradually beat in the eggs. Sift the flour and cocoa powder into the mixture. Finally stir in the melted chocolate. Pour the mixture into a greased and lined baking tray and place in the oven at 160c for 20 minutes.
Once cool, cut the brownies into individual portions and dust with icing sugar.
Serve and enjoy!
