Estate to Plate Safari

Try our new ‘Estate to Plate Safari’ experience which combines a unique, personal encounter with Treetops gamekeepers and specialist wild food chefs on this 2500-acre year-round lush wilderness estate. Every morning our chef sources from the estate garden and meets with our resident gamekeeper to select game and fish ingredients for the day. By late morning he is at his desk crafting dishes to the preferred tastes of that night’s guests.
