Food Fundis

At &Beyond, we strive to deliver extraordinary guest experiences, day in and day out. From life-changing wildlife sightings and unexpected spoils and surprises, to luxurious accommodation and stories shared around a blazing fire, it goes right down to the food we serve, which is always wholesome, fresh, robust, vibrant and literally bursting with delicious flavours.

‘Fundi’ is the South African word for ‘expert’ and our incredible team of creative and oh-so talented Food Fundis are tasked with the simple goal of delighting guests at each and every meal. The food they lovingly prepare is fresh, natural and locally sourced; it exudes the essence of each destination’s richness, history and soul; it is shared with joy and each meal is indeed a celebration.

And don’t forget that calories don’t count when you’re on holiday, so eat the cake, drink the wine and regret nothing. At &Beyond, we love nothing more than to see our guests live every moment, laugh every day and indulge wherever they can.
