Looking for something extra special?

We highly recommend dinner at the Chaîne des Rôtisseurs restaurant in the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve just a short drive away. As a Crayfish Lodge guest for three nights or more, we invite you for the evening of your arrival, so you can feast on an outstanding multi-course gourmet dinner (subject to table availability, beverages are not included), courtesy of Crayfish Lodge. Note that Grootbos dinners cannot be booked otherwise. But we can certainly make alternative dinner recommendations.
