Eating at Etosha Village
Inspiring cuisine can be enjoyed at the Etosha Village Restaurant.
At a typical Namibian Rural Village families are divided into three areas when dining. Traditionally one area is dedicated to men, one to women and the other for the elderly and children. When Etosha Village was designed, we remained true to this tradition and created three different dining areas at our restaurant, but of course not split into gender groups.
Etosha Village is well known for inspiring cuisine and many guests have claimed that it is the best buffet dinner experience in Namibia! You can start your day with a scrumptious buffet breakfast with an extensive selection of all the favourite delectable breakfast foods and treats. Lunch is served a' la carte with loads of mouth-watering dishes to choose from. The popular buffet dinner will leave you spoiled for choice between the salads, side dishes, grilled meats and stir-fries - all prepared fresh and in front of every guest! For the perfect ending there is a range of decadent dessert sensations as well as a variety of cheeses and biscuits. *
At the buffet area there is a 24 hour coffee station with a variety of coffees and teas to enjoy at any time! Enticing lunch packs can also be ordered the evening before at reception to take along on self-drives or guided excursions to Etosha National Park.
* Please note that on the occasion when we have less than 20 guests in-house we serve a delicious plated 3 Course Dinner and have a set menu available at Breakfast.
