The Bush Lapa, set in an African rustic theme, provides traditional food cooked on an open fire. The open-air setting is unique; one can sit around the fire, gaze at the stars, or have a grandstand view of Mossel Bay in the distance. In the one corner, an intimate stage provides the perfect setting for a host of local artists to display their musical talents.

The menu includes oxtail and lamb potjies served with a variety of vegetable dishes or an authentic South African braai. Add to it our 'secret recipe' roosterkoek, sumptuous salads and desserts, and you are guaranteed a quality culinary experience. Our bush bar, situated within the lapa, is a perfect spot to quench one's thirst.

The Bush Lapa is open during the summer holidays and is available for functions throughout the year.

Bush Lapa is also host for a number of well-known artists and bands during the Bush Lapa Music Festival every December holiday.
