    The food was outstanding, the service was fantastic and the African bush theme was tastefully and charmingly executed. Idwala is a 'hidden gem' - while it is central, well connected and easy to find it is definitely unexpected. Thatched chalets, stone paths, cushioned fire pits...More

    Idwala is close to the Cresta shopping center (Cresta/Northcliff) so lots to do close by but that's not its greatest selling point. I have NEVER had a chocolate mousse like the one served at Idwala. The food is generally very good - bit man -...More
