Does anyone know actually where the bush braais are held on evening drives from the Phala Gate? :hmz:

I think different camps use different areas. BnD was using a site out in the bush recently, but will now use the day picnic area. I believe Lower Sabie use Mlondozi picnic area mostly. Best to ask the camp/gate for more information.

We have always wanted to do a bush braai, but the details never worked out. In November we will bringing several 1st timers to South Africa and decided to book a bush braai from Olifants camp. The booking was extremely easy. I called Olifants reception and told them the date and the number of people in our group. They added the braai to our existing reservation and everything is handled.

I then received a request from Forumite Flying Cheetah who saw that we will be in the Berg en Dal area later in the trip. He has always wanted to do a bush braai but could not get the required minimum number of people and asked if anyone from our group was interested in joining him on a braai. Of course we all agreed. I called Berg en Dal reception and again the booking was very easy.

It is a bit pricey at R490 pp, but from all that I have read, it is a small price to pay for an unforgettable experience.

I will update the thread with our experience once we return in mid-December.

Daron, from what other people say, the food is delicious and plentiful..........add that to the evening drive experience and that's got to be well worth it!! :thumbs_up:

We're hoping to do one from Phala Gate when my daughter and SO are with us. :thumbs_up:

Hi everyone
I have done two bush braais and they are great - they are pricey but if you have an occasion to celebrate its worth it.
I was fortunate to be involved in the very first one KP did out of Lower Sabie a few years ago, and then again with my family from US - we were a group of eight.
The second braai, which was also out of LS, the weather didn't play its part, and it poured with rain from start to finish - the braai was held up at Mlondozi (under cover) so that was fine. Great assortment of food and plenty of it. Besides the braai, your sunset drive is always worth it.

I think each camp charges differently and you may need to contact the camp directly to find out prices.

Will be booking again for end Jan for group of seven ... again from LS.

I tried to contact

Johannes Nkosi
email: johannes.nkosi@sanparks.org

Morning mad4wildlife;

The correct email address for Johannes Nkosi is jayvee.nkosi@sanparks.org. Apologies for the inconvinience :k

Hi all!!

My folks are taking their friends (a couple) to South Africa in October of this year and mum is constantly asking me for updates from the forumites! :D

Do any of you have some cool stories to tell from your bush braai experience and perhaps some photo's of where you were and the food etc etc? Just to make them SUPER excited about a once in a lifetime trip!

I know there is a place for all the info on cost and what you get and where you go etc etc... But I want the stories you tell to you family and friends and the photo's you show them to make them green with envy!! :think:

Thanks!!! Looking forward to reading it!! I am so jealous I don't get to go.... :wall: :wall: :wall:

Our group of 6 is going on one from L. Sabie in early September, I will certainly let you know how it turns out. But I have nothing from the past to share.

We've just returned from Kruger and went on a sunset Bush Braai from Skukuza. There were 8 of us - 4 Aussies, 2 from England and 2 from Italy. We arranged all this via the forum (amazing).

The evening drive before the braai was great as we sat for about 20mins. watching a cheetah mother and her 3 cubs (about 1/3 grown) on an impala kill just on the bush right next to the road. If that wasn'tt enough we came across 2 young male lions sauntering (no other word for it) along the road. About 2 kms from the lion sighting the vehicle turned down a road and we entered a low fenced area (about 1m high). The vehicle drove in through a gate, dropped us all off, and then went back out and closed the gate.
We were in a fenced area about 100 m square (might have been more). The perimetre was lit with candles with brown paper bags over them (very atmospheric looking). There was a table set beautifully with white cloths, serviettes, silverware etc. There were about 4 men (who had been there for some time preparing everything).
We were offered steak and chicken from the grill, several dishes from iron pots, several types of salad. For dessert there was a hot type of pudding (cake) with custard. Drinks were available (to buy). Nice wine etc.
There was a toilet (I asked for an escort as there were hyena's outside the fence and I kept thinking about the lions we had just seen not far from the braai). We didn't do a game drive on the way back as we had spent so much time looking at animals prior to the braai that by the time we had finished the meal it was time to go back to Skukuza.
It was a great experience and for us (esp. non South Africans) not expensive at all. It was about $50 Aust. each and in Perth (our home town) we would pay about that for a two course meal at a restaurant without a game drive beforehand.
I thoroughly recommend it.
