Tables are set out in the park, and the surrounding trees offer a canopy of shadow to protect against the harsh sun. Hire a row boat, feed the ducks and watch while the kids do African arts and crafts with Moyo Magic. As the African sun sets, cocktails are served on the deck and fabulous live music set the tone for an extraordinary evening of fine African dining and soulful vibes. The Moyo experience always starts with a song from the Wishy-Washy ladies, welcoming you in the age-old tradition of hand-washing and face painting before the feast begins!
