Tailored menus

Home-style dishes with a fine dining aesthetic

Your meals are personalised by our Executive Chef Treasure Makwanise. Creating delicious recipes that showcase fresh harvests from his carefully tended kitchen garden, he will thoughtfully cater to your tastes.

Our gourmet space

An evocative setting for your meal, our Dining Room makes the most of the immersive greenery surrounding our resort. By day, the light spills through the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and warms the space with a natural glow. In the evening, the crackling fireplace creates a cosy ambience, drawing you in to share stories with fellow guests about your wild and wonderful day.

Chef Treasure's Signatures

Be treated to our Dining Room’s irresistible signature dish, our Nyungwe green goddess pasta. Handmade pasta is infused with tea and dressed in a novel tea leaf pesto, topped with parmesan foam, and served with locally sourced green beans, peas, and spinach. An original recipe by Executive Chef Treasure, it’s an inimitable taste of Rwanda.
