Also popped in to Tshokwane and Nkuhlu and can confirm both were in good working condition.
MUCH better than Afsaal. It's such a pity cos where else do you go in the South for breakfast?
Next time we will use the new Pretoriuskop picnic area - nice and clean and quiet!!!



There's also a new day visitor site near to Berg-an-Dal. We popped in to have a look around last year and it looks like it has some pretty spectacular views but no food cooked for you like at Afsaal.

Sara we spend some time at the B&D day visitors area last month and it is stunning!!

Lovely to sit there and make your food on the skottel. It was very quiet (we were the only people there) which was very lovely after the busy picnic sites.

Afsaal was/is not one of our favourite places, always very full and never gave us the "feeling" that it was situated in a national park BUT it is very sad to hear what has happened to it, Pretoriuskop day visitors area get 10 out of 10 for service, cleanliness and position. Lovely atmosphere to cook breakfast and to sit and absorb the bush that surrounds the picnic spot.

We stopped by Afsaal, Tshokwane and Nkuhlu twice each during our week at KNP, but mostly only for coffee and bathroom breaks. At least for me, Afsaal was the least stressful since there were no monkeys around. Nkuhlu was the worst with having to deal with aggressive baboons. I almost got my wors roll stolen by a vervet at Tshokwane, but that was because I was too intent on getting the focus on my food shot. Afsaal store did seem to carry the least amount of goods out of the three, and the noise from the renovations did lessen the bush ambiance a bit. Still, we were always grateful for the 3 picnic areas providing toilet stops during our self-drives.
