Ryan’s Mini Lamb Sliders

Shara Burger | From The Kitchen

These totally delicious lamb sliders, otherwise known as mini lamb burgers, are a massive hit at Plains Camp. So much so that guests keep asking for the recipe! Well, luckily Chef Ryan decided to share the easy recipe with us all. Here is the recipe for the Tanda Tula homemade lamb sliders, although we make our own buns we suggest you get some from your closest bakery. Enjoy! 


  • 6 mini slider buns (get them from any local bakery) 
  • 500 g lamb mince 
  • 1 tsp onion powder 
  • 1 tsp salt 
  • 1 tsp ground cumin 
  • 2 medium beetroot 
  • 2 tbs apple cider vinegar 
  • 1 tbs brown sugar 
  • 1 tsp black pepper 
  • 4 tbs chutney 


  1. Boil the beetroot until tender. 
  2. Once the beetroot has cooked, remove the skins and grate the beetroot into a mixing bowl. 
  3. Mix in the apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, and black pepper. Season to taste. 
  4. Transfer the grated beetroot into a bottle and store it in the fridge. 
  5. Place the mince in a mixing bowl along with the onion powder, salt, and cumin. 
  6. Mix well and then divide into 6 equal balls. 
  7. Flatten the balls and shape them into small burger patties, slightly wider than the slider buns. 
  8. Heat up a large pan and fry the burger patties with some olive oil and butter. 
  9. Cut the slider buns in half and brush with a little melted butter. 
  10. Toast the buns in the same pan as the burger patties until they are golden brown. 
  11.  On the bottom half of the buns, place a small teaspoon of mayonnaise (optional), lettuce, and sliced cucumber. 
  12. Then place the burger patty, chutney, and grated beetroot. 
  13. Place the top half of the bun on the top of the burger and secure it with a skewer.

Booking Terms & Conditions

Rates are quoted in South African Rand (ZAR) and include VAT. Rates are reviewed quarterly and are subject to change.


Bookings can be held as provisional for up to 14 days, after which the booking is required to release or confirm. A 20% refundable deposit is required to confirm the booking.


Once confirmed with a 20% deposit, the booking is held on a status of ‘confirmed with refundable deposit’ until any of the following becomes true:

  • The booking is cancelled in writing by the agent.
  • Another request is received with overlapping dates. At such a time, the 20% refundable deposit shall be required to be converted
  • into a 20% non-refundable commitment fee. At this stage, the booking status changes to ‘confirmed with commitment.’ • In such an event, Tanda Tula will contact the client and give them the option to either confirm with the non-refundable
  • commitment fee or reschedule their dates, or, failing that, to release the booking.
  • At 60 days prior to arrival, when the full payment is due, the booking status changes to ‘confirmed with full-payment.’

Final payment is due 60 days prior to arrival. Any outstanding balance on the total reservation value shall be required to be settled at 60 days prior to arrival.

All refundable deposits, commitment fees and full payments are held in a separate call account and do not become part of the operational cash flow until the guest has stayed.

The amount stated on the invoice is what must be received by Tanda Tula nett of bank charges.


Cancellations must be received and acknowledged by Tanda Tula in writing.

‘Confirmed with refundable deposit’: bookings carry no cancellation fees up to 61 days prior to arrival.

‘Confirmed with commitment’ or ‘Confirmed with full-payment’: in the event of any reservation being cancelled after Tanda Tula has issued a confirmation, for any reason other than a WHO-recognised pandemic that impacts the booking, the following cancellation fees will apply:

  • ‘Confirmed with commitment’: if cancelled more than 60 days prior to arrival, the cancellation fee shall be equal to the 20% non- refundable commitment fee.
  • ‘Confirmed with full-payment’: if cancelled between 60 days prior to arrival, the full reservation value is forfeited.

All cancelled bookings that qualify for a refund, will be refunded less a handling fee valued at 5% of the refund amount.


Tanda Tula will allow postponement of a booking for up to 12 months, if travel is cancelled with a commitment fee or 60 days or less prior to arrival due to a WHO-recognised pandemic directly impacting the guests’ ability to travel (e.g. lockdown, no flights, guest not allowed to board a flight, guest falls ill due to a pandemic and unable to travel).

In the event of a WHO-recognised pandemic directly impacting the ability of Tanda Tula to meet its obligations with respect to the booking, all monies received, including the commitment fee, will be fully refunded (e.g. lockdown in RSA, government restrictions on trade).

Any refund is given at the discretion of Tanda Tula management and will be charge a handling fee valued at 5% of the refund amount.

All travellers are advised to take out fully comprehensive travel insurance with ‘cancellation for no reason’. This insurance must be able to fully cover cancellation of travel fewer than 60 days prior to arrival.
