The Rugged Kitchen

Dreams really can come true. As a bush chef, the Rugged Kitchen is the easel to the artist, the camera to the photographer. It is the Safari Butler's dream to be able go any where in the bush and set up a luxury bush kitchen, get creative and blend in to the sites and sounds of the African wildlife. This dream is made a reality with the Rugged Kitchen and from it emerges passion and professionalism unique to our outdoor catering services.
