Emily Moon

Emily’s is the most exquisite of dining halls. The spirit of Africa is in every archway, every antique table and in the collectors’ items which adorn every nook and cranny. Lunch by the pool or dine by candlelight and remember the experience for the rest of your life.

Special afternoon spent with family having lunch. Beautiful views. Good food and set is great! There is a pool for kids and a pizza bar should you wish not to sit in the dining area. Definitely worth a visit.
