Overall Rating


We spent several nights at the African Tulip hotel, and eating at the Baobob Restaurant. Almost everything on their menu can be made gluten free, and they provided gluten free bread/cake for the table that was delicious. One night we had a buffet dinner and they worked to ensure 6 of the 8 items where gluten free, isolating the gluten containing items at the end of the buffet.

Breakfast is a buffet, with breads, fruit, hot items, and made to order eggs. They had bacon but it was sitting on bread to collect the grease. We mentioned it to our server and they happily made us some separate bacon for our table.

Finally, we also got lunch boxes from them on two occasions. They were great, and included absolutely delicious gluten free poundcake.

Our party included 2 celiacs, 1 wheat allergy, and 1 non-celiac gluten sensitive. No one got sick, and all ate extremely well. This place is 5 stars, and worth visiting even if you’re not staying at the African Tulip.
