With a growing number of Muslim travelers visiting South Africa, game lodges such as the Kwantu Private Game Reserve have begun making halal-friendly changes to their accommodations.
The Kwantu Private Game Reserve is a five-star game lodge on the Eastern Cape that offers Big Five safari tours. The lodge is particularly suited to Muslim travelers because of its unique menu of halal-friendly, Afro-Asian cuisine. The entire reserve is also alcohol-free and prayer rooms are available for guests to use at any time. In addition to these special amenities, the lodge also offers traditional comforts such as air conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and spa tubs.
While South Africa's own Muslim population may be small, the growing influx of tourists is causing major shifts in the country's hospitality industry.
