Four Course Gourmet Dinner

Start your evening with pre-dinner drinks on the terrace or in the Rainforest Cave where you will most likely be joined by some special guests, which may include white lions or hyenas!

Complimentary Moet Champagne and fine wines!

To continue the African theme, you will join other guests at large tables* for a delectable and fun African gourmet dinner party with some great wines, all included! The four-course menu regularly changes to accommodate seasonal fresh food.

Most dietary requirements can be catered for, just let us know at least 48 hours before arrival.

Children are welcome to dine with their parents and if they wish, they can also enjoy a guided tour of the aquarium while their parents have their main course. If you are bringing children, please advise us 48 hours in advance if you wish for them to have the children’s or the adult’s meal. When the Rainforest Cave is at maximum occupancy, some guests will dine upstairs alongside the sharks after meeting the animals during drinks on the terrace. When Jamala is at peak occupancy, several guests may dine on the heated and enclosed terrace adjoining the Cave.

Dress for dining is neat casual.
