Afternoon tea at Saragossa Game Reserve is a wonderful way of continuing with an age old legacy of life in Africa.
I too am not against a delicious cup of steaming hot tea and a slice of something sweet come 4pm.
At Saragossa there is nothing better than sitting around one of our tables on the patio, giraffes coming down for a drink just a few metres away, while indulging in a decadent slice of freshly baked carrot & cinnamon cake or relishing a crispy curried-rabbit spring roll dipped in Zama’s homemade sweet chilli dipping sauce.
Today we would like to share with you a few of the recipes used when creating these delightful treats.
