While the bushveld is home to many wild creatures, one in particular tomorrow will feature. Where others might flee or snarl or stalk, this creature will hop instead of walk. He is white, rotund and incredibly rare, only venturing out when no one can stare. Tomorrow, on a day that we hope will dawn sunny, join your ranger on a hunt for the Bushveld Easter Bunny
This year we decorated our famous Easter Market with sophisticated style!
Keeping in tradition with the bright coloured schweschwe cloths, we introduced St Joseph Lilies, Fat Clay White Bunnies, Crystal Vases, Chill Out Couches, Pink Hammocks, Rugs and my long awaited dream of a traditional Makoro.
The Londolozi Signature Cinnamon Buns along with the savoury sensations included:
Mushroom Kebabs with Thyme and Garlic Butter, Sizzling Bacon Skewers, Pans of softly scrambled eggs, Crepes, Thinly Sliced Sirloins, Apple and Hay Smoked Parma Ham, Milano Salamis, Baby Carrots with Whipped Feta & Yoghurt, The Cocoa Shack featuring chocolate of all kinds – enough to fulfil any sweet dream…
The Makoro Bar, named after the traditional Okavango Canoe which it represents, was filled with ice cold beverages – Mango Lassi, PIMMS No 1, Graham Beck Brut and Corona’s served with Lime Wedges, all to ensure that this was by far the best bar this side of the Sand River!
