Hi Safari Gal.

We normally only have a cup of coffee in the morning before leaving for the morning drive, and than get back to camp around 10am, where we have a Brekkie at camp, which is normally a full breakfast, so that lasts us for an entire day, and we have lots of junk food throughout the day which includes anything possible, sometimes a packet of noodles help, quick and easy.

We've been overseas heaps of times - Africa 4 times, Bali about 6, NZ a couple of times, and the UK and Europe and yes, we always take vegemite. It comes in a tube now so we don't even have to take a jar (always a worry about breaking in our luggage). I guess all Aussies grow up having vegie (short for vegemite) on toast for breakfast and vegie sandwiches. :hmz: :hmz:

When we're in Kruger I must admit we always put on weight - it comes with just sitting in a car all day and watching animals. I've been home 7 weeks & I'm finding it harder to get back to pre Kruger weight this year!!!!!!! a bit of a worry

Matthys, if you like hashbrowns stop at a Wimpy next time you go to Kruger and buy a couple half-cooked.
Wimpy has a hashbrown breakfast on their menu and will sell you some if you twist their arms, I have often bought from Wimpy Komatipoort


Aaaah ha. So most people doing the lucious breakfast are day visitors, makes sense unless they're staying at bush camps with big working deep freezers.

My wife has found just the ticket for hash browns. Its called Roschti. Made in Switzerland long-life in an "alu pouch". :mrgreen:

Dont think we will be doing the picnic breakfast but eggs at the bush camp after morning drive will be a certain. :dance: might just be the odd tomato still OK.

Koen, I think most off the people making these breakfasts are staying in the park, we just bring our food in a cooler box from the camp,which we buy at a supermarket on our way to the park, and make it at the picnic sights

Wow! And you can rent skottles too. You you have a full South African breakfast on the road even though you could do it at the camp? That's dedication. Most of the people I see look like they are on their way somewhere out of the park, one even had a helicopter on a trailer, another one a boat on the roof! Quite a circus.

Would be nice if you could buy such a breakfast at some of the catered picnic spots though :think: the smells of the cooking is out of this world, delicious. We just get a coffee which is very nice. A bit fussy about the origines of our boerewors but it smells heaven.

I like those eggs rings I saw in the pictures, thats very handy are they easy to find?

Koen, maybe some of the people you saw were driving through the Kruger to get to Mozambique, what would somebody do with a boat in the Kruger? :doh: Egg rings can be purchased at any supermarket or outdoor shop

After visiting many SANParks over the last 40 years, we had our first skottel braai at Skukuza picnic area at the end of Feb this year. :redface: :redface:

We had always meant to, but somehow just didn't!!! :wall:

We had bacon, eggs, tomatoes and rolls, which were delicious, and will certainly repeat the process soon. :thumbs_up:

We will not forget this experience as it was during the meal that our daughter phoned to tell us we were going to be grandparents!!! :dance:

Stayed at Punda went up to Pafuri and the people where all doing the bruch thing, drove me crazy. Had wanted to do it as well but alas not eggs and bacon that I could see at the Punda shop, so maybe next time.

The view of the river was great, flood in Jan 2013 seemed to clear the bush and now you have a more open view.

Kruger is not Kruger without brunch at a picnic spot.

Staying for more than 7 days at a time makes it challenging to keep the variety, but the very first brunch is always a KRUGER brunch:

Fry 2 large onions until soft, add a tin of bully beef (corned beef), cut up in small blocks. Fry these until the eggs become slightly charred. Add 10-12 eggs. Scramble the whole lot, coating the bully beef with the scrambled egg. Take fresh bread rolls. Spread with butter. Put the egg/bully beef concoction inside the roll and flush down with a hot cup of "boeretroos" (coffee)

mmmm... dis mos kos!!

This thread is droolworthy !!

We tried something new last time at Tshokwane - Peri peri chicken livers on the skottel.

Get some chicken livers from Woolies (the best, as they dont need any trimming).
Fry them up with some garlic and onions (mushrooms and peppers optional too).
Then add Ina Paarman's peri-peri sauce; and a touch of cream at the end if it's a special occassion - which it always seems to be :D

Eaten with a crusty buttered roll - magic.

I think this as a breakfast dish might be a Durban thing :hmz:
