Have you ever wondered what makes up a typical day in a luxury safari lodge in Africa? Apart from the excitement of sighting one of the Big Five while out on a game drive or guided walk in the bush, there is much more to what makes the safari experience so special and memorable. One of the most important factors that can make or break your getaway adventure is the food and service at the lodge where you’re staying. Donovan van Staden, Group Executive Chef for Sanctuary Retreats, is responsible for training the chefs and has compiled this mouthwatering collection of recipes that feature on the menus of the lodges, which are set in exotic locations such as the Bwindi Impenetrable Forest in Uganda, the Masai Mara in Kenya, and the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The book is divided into chapters that cover the food served throughout a safari day, from the early-morning biscuits before you depart on the first game drive, to breakfast, lunch and dinner, with afternoon tea, sundowner snacks and canapés in between. The food photography is a feast for the eyes and the accompanying images of the lodges, their friendly and hospitable staff, the magnificent locations and wildlife will have you cooking up a storm to invoke the safari experience or will see you planning your next holiday to one of these remarkable establishments.

As Group Executive Chef for Sanctuary Retreats, DONOVAN VAN STADEN divides his time between the different lodges based all across Africa. This allows him to combine his two great passions: food and wildlife photography. He started his food journey in the rolling hills of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands before moving to the Sabi Sands near the Kruger National Park, where he fell in love with the bush life. Seeking more of a challenge, he ventured further north to Zambia where he met and married his wife Suku and has since become father to two beautiful children. Donovan always keeps one foot in the kitchen and one finger on the shutter, and has had his photographic work published in several fine art and travel magazines. Gourmet Safari is his first book.Review:
"A most unusual and beautiful cook book. This book can also be a coffee table book, and is great for those who like to try International or unusual recipes (unless you live in Africa). The book is organized as if the reader/chef is on an all-day safari around Africa. The recipes, with beautiful photos of the finished dishes, start with early morning fare and end with camping fare, all very elegant and seemingly simple to prepare. The travel photos and shots of happy native people and scenery throughout the recipes are wonderful to enjoy. If you are not accustomed to recipes that are written in grams and milliliters you will need a converter to enjoy this gourmet book. Really special!" (Bonnie Neely of Real Travel Adventures)
