Serendipity Restaurant Luxury Guest House Accommodation Wilderness

Restaurant Booking


Please Note:

Serendipity is a Boutique Restaurant with only eleven tables. We do not turn tables, which means that you are the only group booked on your table for that entire evening. If you don’t honour your booking or cancel at the very last minute, Serendipity will suffer an unreasonable loss.

Please be considerate and cancel a reservation if you decide not to make use of it.

Confirming your reservation:

The morning of your reservation, an automatic SMS and email reminder of your booking will be sent to you. This communication will give you the opportunity to automatically confirm your reservation. You are welcome to confirm your booking a day or two in advance telephonically or by email, but if you do not confirm your booking by 12h00 on the day of your reservation we cannot guarantee your table.

Operating hours:

Dinner only, Monday to Saturday open from 18:30. Bookings essential.
Closed on Sundays, Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Good Friday

Children’s policy:

Serendipity is a Fine Dining environment. We do not cater for children and do not have children’s facilities, high chair’s or menus. If your child will be comfortable in this environment, without disturbing other guests, they are very welcome. We unfortunately do not accommodate children under 5 years.

No table available for the night of your choice?
Please place your name on our Waiting List:

If Serendipity Restaurant is fully booked on the evenings that you prefer, please consider adding your name to the “Waiting List”. We confirm our reservations on a daily basis and sometimes tables do become available.  Weather permitting we can consider taking a table on the patio; please leave a note if you would like a table outside.

(This is only a WAITING LIST and you will be contacted by Serendipity with a Reservation Confirmation if a table becomes available.)


  • Now that you have reserved your table, go ahead, telephone us and we will book your room as well.   
  • Phone Elsabe on 082 4499701 to book your accommodation.
