Enjoy Delicious home cooked meals while we keep your spirits up at the Lekker Bar

NEW!!! We have removed meals from the Rafiki rates for the 2020-2021 season. Guests will be able to order meals off of the new menus...Breakfast is still included with hotel reservations.

The Lekker Bar and Braai

Lekker is the Afrikaans word word for awesome, cool, fun, great or sweet! It is probably one of the most used words in South Africa, and we find it appropriate for the name of our bar. It is the center piece the main lodge. The bar itself is a massive horseshoe which allows guests to chat about their days adventures and meet new friends while sipping on tropical cocktails. We have a full collection of beverages to keep your spirits up as well as fun natural juices and smoothies for the kids.

South African BBQ

Braai is a South African word for BBQ. South Africans pride themselves on their culinary skills on the grill. Rafiki embraces that cultural heritage with some wonderfully spiced dishes. We also incorporate local Costa Rican dishes on the menu.  Our 16 year experience of home cooked meals inspired by a variety of chefs through the years are refined, filling and delicious. Even if you have a plant diet, we will keep your energy levels primed for adventure.


Breakfast is served from 7:00am to 10:00am. Coffee and tea is served at 6:00am, so you can enjoy the birds at the feeder.  We offer several options for breakfast with fresh fruit in the morning, although we can be flexible for those needs to get on the road.


Lunch is served from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm.  We will publish the new lunch menu soon!
