Mhondoro Safari Lodge is one of only a select few South African game lodges to have received the coveted 2017 Diners Club Platinum Winelist Award. The luxurious 5-star safari lodge is located in Welgevonden Game Reserve in the Waterberg (Limpopo province). Since its opening less than two years ago, it has been widely recognised for its unique culinary offering that focuses on a healthy food concept, further enhanced by what is now known as an ‘award-winning’ wine list.
Mhondoro distinguishes itself from other safari lodges with its style and quality of fresh, home-grown and beautifully plated food, presented in an exciting, modern African style. Complementing the culinary offering, Mhondoro takes pride in presenting a comprehensive wine list as a showcase for South African wines. The wine list offers a selection across most varietals produced in this country, including sparkling wines, dessert and port-style wines, as well as white and red blends such as the iconic Meerlust Rubicon and Kanonkop Paul Sauer.
Frank and Myriam Vogel, the owners of Mhondoro said: ‘The Diners Club Winelist awards are a benchmark for excellence and it is an honour for us to gain recognition for the class and style of our wine list. We are proud to present our guests with fine wines to complete the perfect meal – served here in the African wilderness and surrounded by nature.’
