“Hands down our most favourite restaurant. Especially as the veranda and deck have large shady trees. Also great for a winter's night inside by the fire. Originally the Hoedspruit Railway Station it's decor shows some relics from it's passed history. Consistently good food and the best pizza in town.”

“A few kilometers out of town, heading north on the R40 is the very popular Thirsty Giraffe. The owner/chef hails from Mozambique and no one does roast chicken better. They serve a variety of Mozambican recipes, as well as more traditional grills and wood oven pizza. Heading north on the R40 from town, watch for the sign on your left, just after you pass Tshukudu Game Reserve (which will be on the right).”
