A visit to the Amarula Lapa shows the magic of turning Marula fruit into Amarula Cream. Enjoy a glass of Amarula Cream on crushed ice, whilst listening to the stories and folklore surrounding the Marula tree. In February and March, during the harvesting season, a visit to the production plant is included. Light meals and Amarula cocktails are available from the restaurant.

Mat was our host when we got there and he was super helpful and nice. Because we didn’t get to see the factory it was a short experience. The lunch options are very limited and a bit over priced.More
