The kitchen is off the dining hall and has cutlery and crockery for 100 people.  Our kitchen has recently had an upgrade and now provides a modern air conditioned working space for the cook and their helpers.  Basic kitchen equipment such as saucepans , electric frypans, slow cookers, woks, urns and kitchen utensils are available.  There are two large gas ovens and cooktops as well as a flat bed BBQ. Use of the kitchen is included in the accommodation costs. Currently most camps to choose to self cater. However if you would prefer someone to cater for your group you can contact Jan Herrmann who may be able to assist with catering for your group. Costs generally start at $40 per person for a full days catering (Breakfast, lunch, dinner and either morning or afternoon tea) but this is dependent on group size. An individual  quote can be arranged should you wish to consider having your camp catered for. Profits from catering go back to Riyala.

Dining Hall:

The open sided dining hall has tables and chairs to seat approximately 120 people for meals.

Meeting Hall:

The meeting hall is between the two main accommodation areas and is open ended. It is now fitted with a wall mounted large screen television which can be connected to your laptop.  The meeting hall provides a large undercover area for games or seminar sessions.  Many groups choose to use the fantastic lush gardens and lawned  areas  as small group spaces  rather than the undercover areas  during the dry season.
