We have discussed the famous Kruger breakfast and a real South African favourite, the braai. (barbeque).

What is on your Kruger menu? Do you mostly eat in the restaurants? Do you just buy take-aways? Do you cook your own meals? If the latter is the case; do you eat out of tins or cook a three course meal? Do you eat three meals a day or is it just brunch and dinner for you?

Wake up: Coffee and rusks

Breakfast on the road: Sandwich with cheese, or left over braai from the night before. Coffee.

Mid morning: Snacks - chips, biscuits, chocolate(Twiga ofcourse).

Lunch: Something from one of the shops at whatever camp we are closest to.

Mid Afternoon: More snacks...

Supper: One night at each camp a meal at the restaurant. Otherwise we braai. Braai roasted cheese and tomato sandwiches to start. Then a 200g lazy aged rump steak which has been lying in marinade for the whole day. Boerie. Chicken kebabs. Salad- tomato, feta cheese and lots of it, lettuce etc.

We are always hungry early in the morning in Kruger, must be the air, so we eat leftovers from the previous night or fruit, chips, eetsummores, whatever we have. Then about 11am we either have a skottel brekkie or have breakfast at a camp.
At night we braai or cook pastamate or occasionally go to the restaurant.
Some days we have taken food for a skottel brekkie and ended up having it for supper because we haven't wanted to stop driving.

Early morning rusks and coffee, then brunch at a picnic site, a few snacks for the rest of the day and braai for supper. Take most of the food with us. :)

Breakfast is coffee and rusks on the road or at a waterhole, or a nice cooked full breakfast back at camp mid morning.
Lots of snacks during the morning (like for instance chockies :D or biscuits, sometimes fruit).
Lunch is usually a picnic of avo or tuna and melba toast, cheese and crackers. Or a take-away.
More snacks for mid afternoon.
Supper is normally a braai at camp, or a one pot meal of some sort or a visit to the camp restaurant now and again, but who wants to eat inside if you can at the camp fence!
After dinner...more chockies... :D
Home = diet :!: :!:

We stay at Ngwenya usually which is only a few kms from Croc Bridge so its coffee and rusks/biscuits on waking just to get going and then once in the park we have more coffee and some of those breakfast bars they sell now. Lunch is either boerie or minute steak rolls at one of the picnic spots if we dont eat at the camps. We also take fruit, sweets and chips for the car for inbetweens. Supper, normally is a braai, or a light meal, say soup or toated sandwiches if we feel we have overindulged during the day. We have just bought a very handy cooler box that works off the car's cigarette lighter and keeps 9 tins of beer/cooldrinks icy cold. It can sit on the back seat between the passengers and the top is padded so doubles as an arm rest, dying to try it out in a little over 4 weeks. :D

What are matjontjans, please?


It's like really thick bacon. Marinated. 8) 8)

You don't only get pork ones either - lamb & beef are pretty tasty. An English description might be thick rashers?

A great menu for the day for me would be:

Depending on where you drive from either Brunch at Afsaal or tshokwane using skottels provided to cook up a huge feast.
Lunch would definately be pie, chips and gravy at skukuza, and for supper nothing beats the traditional braai, the smell of which attracts all types of animals, which are looked at, appreciated and not fed!!!!!

When we wake up it's coffee (my husband cannot function without a cup of coffee first). Then drive to a waterhole and have more coffee and rusks and biscuits.

Snacks during the day (chocolates (mainly for me :D ), biltong and dry wors (for hubbie), crisps, fruit, pretzels)

Lunch is normally leftovers from the night before with a salad, rolls, cheese, etc. with a castle or two for hubbie and a glass of wine for me.

Same snacks for the afternoon.

Sundowners next to a waterhole is cheese, biscuits, pate.

Almost forgot, just before the shop closes, we buy vanilla ice cream (in the tubs) and after supper we have the ice cream with a chock liqueur poured over :D Absolutely yummy


Supper is mostly a braai, sometimes a stir fry or a potjie.

Sorry Arks!! :lol:

"Skilpaadjies" is a traditional South African dish of liver wrapped in suet. Skilpaadjies = Tortoises.


Thanks, GP!! I trust you mean that they look like tortoises, not that they are made from tortoise?

My Afrikaans is going to definitely improve from spending time in this forum. I've been surprised that I know a bit more than I'd realised, which isn't too bad for a monolingual American.

cheers, arks
