A Boutique Bush Lodge in the City

We’re delighted to let you know about two new recruits for Aloe Lane, both of whom came on board earlier this year. And more importantly, both involved in making our food and beverage service even more tempting!

Takudzwa Nhira
When our hostess Babiki departed in December to get married, we thought it might be difficult to replace such a popular favourite with our guests. Then along came this bright young man with a tongue twister of a name – who we simply call Teekay.

Always smiling and ready to chat, he can knock up a speciality coffee or an amazing cocktail with ease. He is passionate about his work and won Barista of the Year at his past workplace. He enjoys interacting with guests and welcomes everyone with a cheerful smile – why not come and see for yourself?

Vukani Gwala
Vukani is a bit shy, so we’re showing you his amazing Lamb Shank instead – already a firm favourite! Vukani joined our team as 2nd chef in January, working with our Head Chef Patrick and covering the the weekend schedule. Vukani has many years of experience catering to the needs of boutique lodge guests, and he is already a firm favourite.

Working together, Patrick and Vukani ensure that our warm hospitality and home style cooking is available throughout the week for all of our guests. Bringing Vukani on board has also allowed Patrick to take some valuable time off from a busy weekly schedule!
