I will try and post some of mine from this year out of Lower Sabie. We were taken to a location in the middle of the bush - it was awesome.
They stopped using Molondozi some time ago.

Love the fancy chair covers used out of Skukuza.

I really want to do a bush braai for my birthday at Lower Sabie. I emailed and they said they can arrange it for us, but since it's only the 2 of us, if they don't get anyone else to sign up we would have to pay for 4 people. I'm not sure how popular the bush braais are. Do you think it's likely that other people will sign up or are bush braais something that don't always have people signed up for every night. I'm hoping that since Lower Sabie is a popular camp others will sign up. Otherwise I may be tempted to pay for all 4 spots to have our own private bush braai.

Why not post the date that you want to do your birthday braai in this thread and ask interested forumites to PM you, LeftyLynn ?
You might end up with new forum friends celebrating your birthday with you 8)


Fabulous idea MATTHYS! I would love to have other forumites join me for a birthday bush braai. Here's the details:

Lower Sabie
October 10

If anyone is going to be at Lower Sabie that evening, we would love to have you join us!

LeftyLynn - Its a wonderful experience .. especially out of Lower Sabie. Ask for Martie as your ranger/guide.
I am trying to post some photos.
Maybe by the time you go, there will be more visitors on board. I hope so!

Our bush braai out of Lower Sabie - delicious food, and a wonderful evening.
I had family out from USA and they thought it was a highlight of the trip.

I recommend it to anyone wanting a real bush experience.

This location is really in the middle of no mans land - a huge circle of grass was cut short where the braai took place, and the surrounding boundaries were lined with candles placed in paper bags. The long grass surrounded us. (hope it makes sense)

Thanks so much for the pictures and comments, Fee. Good suggestion about requesting Martie. I enjoy reading her posts about Lower Sabie on the forum.

We actually found the other 4 people from the forum to do the bush braai with us.

Another way (via the forum) to find people is to look up the thread "when will I find a yellow ribbon in Kruger" and look for other members who are going to be in the same camp as you (at the same time). Is so then try a PM to them asking if they would like to join you. Does this make sense.

I hope it all works out. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:


Thanks! I wasn't familiar with that section of the forum. I'll check into that. I just got my yellow ribbon this weekend. So we'll be displaying it!!

Hi Forum Members,

On 20 Dec we'll (party of 3) have booked a Bush Braai at the wonderful Lower Sabie rest camp. As wonderful as that sounds they have said that we require at least 4 people to ensure that this does go ahead. Whilst I'd love to clone myself I'm not to sure my SO would approve of having to put up with two of me.

I'm hoping that there are fellow KNP visitors who'll join us on this 'adventure'. I'll be sure to sip a cold one after the drive to listen to what ever tall stories you have to tell.

Tick tock the count down continues.

As someone else suggested keep an eye on the Topic Here for any members who might be staying in LS at the same time and then approach them and see if they would be interested in joining in.
And of course by that time there may very well be others who have booked.
Good luck. :thumbs_up:

Thank you for the advice Elsa. LeftyLynn, Hope you get the minimum numbers for your booking so you can enjoy your braai and cold drinks away from camp.

Is there anybody who would like to comment on their experience of a Bush Braai at Lower Sabie?

Okay, so I eventually got the go ahead for a ‘bushbraai’ from SO :k . If there is any fellow forumites that wanted to do a ‘bushbraai’ this December? Please pm me...evidently we need four…..not two :doh: .

This will most definitely be a dream come true :dance:

Sorry Riaanf31, we would have gladly joined you but our stay don’t overlap yours in LS

I’m also looking for ‘mites’ to join us for a Bush Braai at any of the camps we are staying, no luck so far :|

If there is any of the mites who would like to join us for a Bush Braai at LS 27, 28, 29 or 30 December 2013 please mp me :pray:
