Etosha Village offers traditional eating arrangements in a typical Ovambo settlement. After the call for food to be prepared in a kitchen area, meals would be presented to hungry villagers. Men, women, children and elders, would then take their meal to separate eating areas, laid out in a 'kraal-like' manner, built with local materials to create shelter. These customs are reflected in the Taleni's kitchen/buffet area of today. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in outside Etosha Village restaurants. Buffet meals must be booked in advance.
