Just stumbled into this thread (was feeling hungry in the office, so the food thing caught my eye :roll: )

Kruger food is a really simple thing for us. Sure we do the chockies and the chips as snacks, but there are a few things that define our "Kruger Eating Plan".

The stuff we cannot do without:

Brekkie phase 1:
1) Amarula Coffee. :lotsocoffee: If I had to do a Kruger trip without this, I, well, lets just say it has never, and will never happen.
2) Ouma Muesli Rusks
We have these things as we're driving through the camp gates when they open.

Brekkie phase 2 (Stopped at a waterhole or somesuch place):
1) Amarula Coffee :shock:
2) Hard Boiled Eggs made by my good lady the evening before. I can recommend this heartily :k
3) Lemon Creams
4) Amarula Coffee :big_eyes:

We don't eat much when we're driving around but we do like to crack a coolie or two, or maybe a bitterly cold frosty (Windhoek is my particular friend) when we're parked off at a viewsite. Chips, peanuts yada, yada.

Lunch:
We usually eat this at about 12:30 or so and it always consists of cold chicken boerie and cold braaied chicken thighs (we make extra every night for the next days lunch). Rolls, Cheese, Marmite, stuff like that. Windhoek

Mid afternoon Snacktime while slouching on the stoep:
Peanuts, Windhoek :thumbs_up:

Afternoon Drive Chow:
Peanuts, Windhoek :thumbs_up:

Braai...... We only braai ...... We're the doff okes you see with the umbrellas and the tea tray flapping like crazy Maribou's at the grey, muddy ashes of the Kruger Shop Logs that the unseasonal torrential rain has doused like a candle under Vic Falls.

But we like it.

And every evening meal is pretty mush the same thing :D . It's kind of comforting knowing that we don't have to give any thought to it.

We do:

Chicken Boerie
Chicken Thighs
A can or two of Musical Fruit,
Sweetcorn,
and of course Asparagus (which has a strange effect on the loo...... :hmz: ).
Lots of Fanta Pineapple or Pine Nut to wash it down with.

Sleep, repeat.

Aaaaahhhh!!! :pray:

When we go for extended periods, missus cannot do red meat every night. So we make pasta sauce which we freeze and we then have gnocchi and spaghetti some nights. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

I'm gonna pull this topic out of the woodwork again.... :twisted:

We go to Kruger for 7 nights every year, usually in August. And every time I put together the same menu.

1st Night:

Braai packs, salad and garlic bread
Breakfast will be a bacon egg and toast fry-up at a picnic spot.

2nd Night

Smoked/roast chicken, with baked potatoes (wrapped in foil on the coals) and some veg. Usually boiled carrots or baby marrows.
Breakfast will be leftover chicken & mayo jaffels. (also at a pcnic spot)

3rd Night

Spare ribs & chips
Breakfast is usually eaten en-route to the next camp.

4th Night (New camp)

Fillet steak, salad & garlic bread or sweet potatoes on the coals
Breakfast is a creamy bacon, onion & chicken liver fry-up, on toast.

5th Night

Hot Durban curry & rice!
Breakfast - leftover curry jaffels

6th Night

Crumbed Pork Chops and mash, with a veg side
Breakfast - Bacon & egg fry up

7th Night

Final night braai. Usually a braai pack with salad again, or whatever is still in the freezer!
Breakfast is eaten on the way home....

During the midday break at the camp, we usually eat whatever is leftover from the previous nights braai, or snack on biscuits, cheeses, gherkins, mussles etc.

Lots and lots of biltong is consumed while driving! LOTS!!! 8)
