Let’s face it, there are 2 things on everyone’s list when visiting SA... 1. Go on a Safari 2. Drink SA wine But, sometimes getting both done on the same trip is almost impossible... unless you visit The Venue (and Safari Wines) in Hoedspruit while...on your Safari holiday! The selection of wines from some of SA’s best producers is unrivaled in the area. The wood-fired Pizzas are as amazing as the wines on offer and the staff are fantastic! So... do yourself a favour when in Hoedspruit... visit, eat and drink at The Venue / Safari wines!!!More

We really enjoyed our Lunch here yesterday. Lovely thin based pizzas made with fresh ingredients, excellent gin cocktails, an extensive SA wine list and super friendly, attentive staff. I would highly reccomend a visit for anyone passing through or spending a few days in the...Hoedspruit area.More

Amazing Pizzas - simply the best we have eaten - anywhere in the world. I know this sound too good to be true and incredible in a small town in the South African Bush but how they pull it off is a tribute to their...ingenuity. Thin, thin crispy pizzas cooked in their wood fire pizza oven have really creative toppings. Forget extensive choices - there are five or six on the menu but they will change ingredients to suit. Our favourites are the one with Gorgonzola, apple and smoked ham. The Asian beef version just oozes a deep flavour and delivers 'melt in the mouth' slow cooked beef. But you also have to accompany the pizzas with a 'Gin Cocktail'. By UK standards these are an absolute 'steal', price wise, but hold nothing back in their creative mixtures. Housed alongside their wine shop Safari Wines the tables are outside and set amongst pretty trees despite being just off the R40. Its well worth a stop if you are travelling. At the moment the last orders are 4pm I believe but they will also cater for takeaways. Perhaps we can persuade them to open a couple of nights a week!More

We had not planned on eating anything but after spotting one head out to another table we ordered one. We were not disappointed. The service was great too. Definitely highly recommend a visit to the venue. You can wash the pizza down with a delish...gin cocktailMore

Stopped there just for a stroll and ended up with a fantastic Gin Tasting. The way how it is presented, the looks of the drinks and the atmosphere of the location just made it an unforgettable memory of our this years stay in South Africa....Apart from that the pizzas are delicious 😋And not to forget the huge variety of wines they are offering. Beer lovers: go for the craft beers. We will definitely be back when in town again.More
