Mbala Private Camp serves wholesome farm-style meals, all prepared fresh and seasonally grown. Our meals are wonderfully varied and flavoursome, reflecting our use of what’s available and sustainable in our menu planning.
Our remote location in the middle of the bushveld means we need to be both creative because of the ingredients that are available, as well as practical. We enjoy incorporating the wonderful products found in Brining, Fermenting and Pickling into all our meals.
We love to explore the use of the superfood plants like our Moringa, Turmeric and Ginger which are all ingredients to add additional flavour and eating experiences to the food served here at Mbala.
Guests can also experience our home-brewed Kombucha tea. This amazing organic tea is fermented according to the ancient Chinese kombucha tea masters, originators of this naturally healthy probiotic cold drink. We add an extra fermentation which allows us to power up our Kombucha tea with all the organic seasonal products (and whatever else takes our fancy) that grow here at Mbala!
In your suite you will find your very own handmade gift bag full of products made right here at Mbala. These are for you to use and take home! Ask about how we make all the products here at Mbala and why.
