KG,

I am looking forward to trying out some of the food in October :D

I am sorry, but as I don't know Afrikaans, could you please tell me what "vetkoeke" is?

Nina

Hi Nina

A vetkoek is a fat cake - vet = fat and koek = cake .... actually its a bread dough thats made into a large ( well at TR they are humungous ) flat patty and then fried - they are then cut open and filled with stuff - tradionally curry mince ( not mice, sorry :redface: ) - the ones made at TR are delicious believe me ..... and the Kalahari Vetkoek is filled with a burger patty, fried egg, cheese, bacon, lettuce and tomato :tongue:

Thank you for your explanation Scouter. :D
That sounds delicious.
If it is possible to get such a delicious vetkoeke with a vegetarian filling, I am in for it.
The only problem is: I have to wait till October :(

KG is going to have to watch his weight - I fear this might be too tempting for him with the takeaway kitchen so close to his office!!

We ate there twice and can not complain! :D Generous portions - the Curry Vetkoek I had the second time, was supposed to be the smallest one of the lot, and I had trouble finishing it! Definitely a nice addition to Twee Rivieren.

I´m sorry to go back to the bats inside chalets issue but I would like to know, if possible, if bats only go inside chalets during the summer months, or if it can happen al year round, my concern would be during April or August.

judik :D :D - try "vet" as in FETA cheese and "koek" as in cook or cuckoo ... It'll be near enough ... and I promise you wont regret it one bit :thumbs_up:

Thanks anne-marie and Guinea Pig, it´s good to know your experiences in that, m not really planning a trip to Kgalagadi since this year I´ll go elsewhere but I would like to go there, if possible in 2014, but when I start planning it I must be sure (as possible9 in what concerns that issue.

Maybe Kgalagadi Guru can say something else about bats in April and August.
