Boerrie roll in my neck of the woods costs a lot more..... and it comes minus the view.

These 'inspectors' are often in strategic positions in the trees or under the tables, and when some human dropps any food, intentionally or otherwise, they swoop from everywhere to that place, thereby telling the others of the transgression.

Sheeba AFAIK, is the tomato and onion sauce you pour over pap.

When I make my own, I like to add a touch of chillie and chutney.

Could not wait to sample the pap,sheeba and wors when we visited durning September-and boy was it worth the wait!Nice setup at Tshokwane now-for an old Kruger junkie like me,just the smell of a wood fire at Tshokwane brings back a lot of memories.Staff also nice and friendly-keep up the good work.Until next year!

Once again - Congratulations to all at Tshokwane Picnic Spot!! :clap: :clap:

After a recent visit we found Tshokwane to be spotlessly clean with friendly service and great food (esp. the Borewors rolls and sheba sauce)

Well done to all involved!!

Hey, blommietjie! :thumbs_up:

Ja, but I was only a year or so old then... :tongue:

But I remember the old permanent fires and the kettles...ironically you'd pitch up and grab some coals and boiling water chop-chop!

No waiting!

Wonder if we shouldn't go back that way, sometimes...but not eco-friendly... :?

Notice the same chairs and "fence" more or less still the same?

Now that old photo brings back very fond memories :)
Us as kids, so excited to get to Tshokwane on a hot day, racing to the shop to buy Fanta orange :lol: As soon as we got to camp, racing off to the shops once again to take back the 'emptys' for money(those days I think we got 5c) :lol: :lol:

Hi Jarrod! A warm welcome to the forums!
Could those old chairs have withstood all the sitting and weatherbeating through all these years?! Or could they have been replaced as time went by?
But just the oldness of the photo moves a person to nostalgia. Love old photos!
