The Elephant Café is Two Months Old Today

The Elephant Café, in which I am a partner and the Chef de Cuisine, is two months old today. Instead of writing about its story so far, I have chosen instead to compile a slideshow that illustrates it. As you can see, I’m in heaven … 🙂

With grateful thanks to Hugh Masekela for his sublime Grazing in the Grass.

    • Thank you, Fiona. Yes … Rita and I were in touch, but on that particular day you wanted to come we weren’t open. We are now every day, so we look forward to feeding you soon!

  • Hey Annabel,
    long time….your Elephant Cafe looks totally amazing – where is it? On the tobacco farm somewhere? I hope to come to Livingstone before end of the year and would love to make a turn!!
    Your Savannah Bell logo is also extraordinarily beautiful – love it!!!
    Sorry that I haven’t been in touch – city life is exhausting!! It’s only now – that I’m recovering from an op – that I’m home and have some time for ‘musings’…miss the river, Livingstone, miss you all!!
    Lots of love

    • Daniela! Hi! Great to hear from you, although sorry to hear you’ve had an op. I so hope you are on the mend …
      The Elephant Cafe is in the National Park on a deck in the Zambezi River. It was built by SafPar, in amongst their herd of rescued elephants. It is indeed a very special spot. You must definitely come and visit when you’re next up here. Just give me a heads-up and I will put you in touch with the right people.
      Much gratitude for your kind comment about my SavannaBel logo. It was designed by another Livingstonian, Karlien Geldenhys, who also updated my website. Amazing what talent this little town is producing these days!
      We miss you, too, and look forward to seeing you sometime. Get well, take it easy, and this comes with lots of love to you … xo
