Guests typically have the option to choose between a barbeque or a potjie, which is a veggie-meat stew cooked on hot coals in front of everyone. Just like other countries, braais are more of a social gathering than anything.
Your dinner will be surrounded by lanterns, candles, and a fire pit. No matter what you choose, your enchanting evening will be unforgettable.
If you wish, you can request Zulu dancers from the nearby village, who will come and perform cultural dances in traditional attire.
