Mealtimes at JAWAI follow the rhythm of safari drives and excursions, with no ‘set time’ for when guests have to eat. Our stylish dining tent offers inspiring views of the hills. Enjoy delicious buffet style salads and fresh pasta or fish procured from local fishermen, cooked right in front of you in our live kitchen. Dinners around the campfire or the Boma are a time for sharing tales from the day of exploring and for making new friends.
At JAWAI guests can enjoy access to unique and secluded locations for private dining. What could be more dramatic than a granite kopje, which serves as a private dining room overlooking the expanse of the JAWAI wilderness? Breakfasts in the bush and picnics in the wild, luncheons by the lakes and embracing dinners under constellations of an unending sky, make for stunning options. Meals are created using homegrown produce from our own kitchen garden or fresh-farmed ingredients sourced from local farmers.

SUJÁN raises awareness among their suppliers about using natural, traditional and organic farming methods and a ‘no plastic’ policy. Indigenous plants are nurtured and grown throughout the grounds.
Prolific afforestation, particularly pre–monsoon, the use of local materials in low impact construction such as mud walls and grass banks, and a careful use of fuel are just some of the ways in which we help reduce the carbon footprint around JAWAI. The organic farm and dairy help preserve gene strains of indigenous poultry and cattle while providing homegrown produce, tended by our team of gardeners and farmers.
For every guest who visits a SUJÁN property a conservation contribution is directly fed into a fund with which SUJÁN provides financial support and resources to their own projects and local conservation partners.
