Welcome to the Savannah Café!

Howzit! Before you head out on safari or settle into an evening in your luxury tent, join us for a meal at the Savannah Café. When you dine with us, you’re sharing an experience inspired by the legendary South African Braai (pronounced “bry,” in case you were wondering). A mainstay of South African tradition, the braai has expanded to become part of the cultural life of many neighboring nations and now we’re pleased to offer our Sonoma County take on this storied tradition!

While braai can be described as a close cousin of our own American barbecue tradition, it is also much more. It’s an excuse to get together, catch up with some old friends and make a few new ones. Christmas, birthday parties, bridal showers, or any old Thursday, there’s no wrong time to braai!

Dining Braai Grill

The rules to a good braai are simple:

  1. This is a social occasion. The more the merrier!
  2. Grilling is imperative and should be done over a wood fire.
  3. Sides, sides, and more sides!
  4. “Dop” or drinks are a must. Grilling is thirsty work after all.

Here at the Savannah Café, we’re making braaing a daily event. Lunch and dinner will always include savory smells rising from our custom built wood-fired grill and a huge assortment of delicious sides and desserts. We offer beer, wine, and other beverages. With abundant seating on our expansive terrace, dinner at Safari West is a chance to get to know your fellow adventurers and enjoy the culinary creations of the Savannah Café.

“(Braai) is one thing that can unite us irrespective of all of the things that are trying to tear us apart.”

Archbishop Desmond Tutu

*Meals reservations must be made as part of a safari or overnight reservation. The Savannah Café is a reservation-only facility and cannot accommodate walk-ins. Please call to confirm availability during January and February.
