Frequently Asked Questions
What does Asante mean?
Asante comes from the Swahili dialect and means "thank you." The vision of this unique hill country setting was inspired by the world travels of Darlene and Dan Cabela. Often when they have visited new places in Africa, they have felt that they had always been there and were essentially home. It is their intention that Asante speaks to its guests in this way.
