MZNP: Shopping Enroute

Unread postby mariek » Sun Apr 07, 2013 10:45 pm

OK - I have a confession - I love Pick n Pay! I get excited about stocking up there for our braais in any of the sanparks.

We're going to stock up in Port Elizabeth for our 6 night Addo trip - but then we are off to MZNP for 5 nights. I was wondering where we can stock up en route from Addo to MZNP and if there are any pick n pays or other supermarket.

Sorry if I sound like a silly fool! PnP has become such a part of my SA trips!

Hi Marie
There are a number of grocery chain stores in Cradock .... I assume a PnP as well.

I know that Cradock has a Checkers and Super Spar. I have used both and they are on the main road. I found the Super Spar slightly more expensive, but less crowded. The service was really very good.

About 40 kms before Cradock there is the Daggaboer farm stall. It has been voted as best farm stall in the country by readers of "GO" or "WEG" magazine. They deserve every vote they get. Go in at your own peril. You will find the most decadent and delicious array of goodies that you can imagine.

I think the stall is about 15kms from the Bedford turn off coming from PE direction. :hmz:

I tried their biltong pate for supper one night.. just marvelous.

Hi Marie! I can relate to your passion for PnP. :lol: But alas, the store locator doesn't come
up with one in Cradock. Yet, I found a Super Spar is a good alternative. :thumbs_up:

Hi Marie,

We did our shopping last year at the spar in Cradock, and got every thing we needed and a bit more!!

We did the trip the other way round and by then we were running low on meat and fresh veg & fruits. They had a good selection of meat and I got all the other fresh goodies.
