Restaurant Hours

Unread postby LeftyLynn » Wed Oct 14, 2015 4:36 am

Is there a general rule of thumb for the restaurant hours at all camps or does each restaurant have different hours?

Hi Lefty Lynn, I will need to find out from Kruger PR for you - but I seem to think the restaurants do all keep the same hours. They do not close at night until the sunset drive is back so folk can still come and get dinner. But it also might depend on the fact that one needs to book - let me find out for you.

Thanks DinkyBird! We spent two weeks in the park two years ago, but I just can't recall what the restaurant hours were. We typically make our own braai in the evening. I was mostly wondering what the breakfast and lunch hours are and if the restaurants are open straight through the day or if they close between breakfast and lunch and between lunch and dinner. Thanks again. :gflower:

As far as I know, they are open all day. Just need to confirm opening and closing times.

Have you read here.

Last time we were there - April 2014, most retaurants opened at 7am and were open all day till closing time. :thumbs_up:

Crested Val, now I don't feel quite as silly that I can't remember the restaurant times from our last visit.

DinkyBird, thanks for the link. It looks like most of the restaurants are open 7:00 to 21:00. The ones with Mugg and Bean don't show closures between meals, but some of the others do. One of my concerns was our planned stop at Letaba on our day traveling from Satara to Shingwedzi. Since they have a Mugg and Bean, it looks like we should be okay even if we arrive between breakfast and lunch. I've read good things about the restaurant on the river at Letaba, so we want to be sure to give it a try this time.

I often use the retaurant at Letaba as a coffee or lunch stop when I'm staying at Olifants. When I was last there in November 2014, I found the Letaba Mugg & Bean excellent. Unfortunately, the M&B at Satara was not (slow and indifferent service), but I'll hope that has improved since then. The restaurant at Shingwedzi is, IMO, one of the best in the park. It is usually my lunch stop when I'm staying at Punda Maria. It has a really interesting menu and terrific staff. :thumbs_up:

I just want to share the following with the 'mites.

We are in Kruger from the 20th of October 2015, starting with Satara and are 8 'mites and two friends in the camp on the 20th and we decided to have a mini meet in the restaurant and have dinner together :D .

As a result of the availability of information on the forums as in the link that DinkyBird referred to above, I did send M&B an e-mail to book a table for dinner and received a reply within 10 minutes that a table was reserved and they are looking forward to meet us :thumbs_up: .
