Safari of African Animals with Peter Niehaus

Join us January 27, 2017 at the Wild Hare Café in Elkhart, Illinois, for our dinner lecture entitled, 

"On Safari With Peter Niehaus: South Africa and its Animals."


Peter Niehaus will share his knowledge of the animals of South Africa. Enjoy a choice of a hearty Tuscan vegetable soup and salad dinner or a traditional dinner with two all-time South African favorites. The full dinner includes a portion of mild Malay Chicken Curry and Beef Bobotie accompanied by rice and the traditional relishes and salads typically served with these dishes.  A warm lemon pudding follows, or as an alternative, vanilla ice cream topped with chocolate sauce.   Iced teas and coffee are included.  


Reservations are required and can be made by calling 217 947 2238, and the deadline for reservations is January 22, 2017. The price of $40 per person for the dinner or $27.50 for the soup and salad includes the meal, tax and tip and $10 to the Elkhart Historical Society.
