All we have for our breakfast is another cup of coffee and maybe a couple of rusks. Lunch, however, is a different matter.

Normally we go for some chopped onions, chopped mushrooms, maybe a tin of mixed veggies, chopped peppers and 2/3 chopped chicken breasts. This is all stir fried on the skottle pan and just before serving, a liberal dollop ( shake of the bottle ) of Balsamic Vinegar. Whilst this is cooking, the SO has prepared a little extra side salad. Awesome, but never tastes the same here in England. lololol

This year, we are going to try some Minced Beef or Lamb, fried on the skottle and then add a jar of Bolognese Sauce. We have a nifty little gadget that we can put spaghetti into, fill with boiling water and 12 minutes later, cooked spaghetti for a Kruger Spaghetti Bolognese.

We fly out on 12th October and cant wait.

I love the idea of a YR on the skottel!

As far as I know the skottelbraai is unique to South Africa. At least, I never encountered it in any other country that I visited. Rusks are also rather authentic, I believe.
I'm looking forward at enjoying it all during my next visit to Kruger, February next year.

Just one question: why nobody makes pancakes?

Wow love the pictures of the brekkies :dance: We dont do that often but love to watch the monkeys trying to steal the buns and eggs from the poor hungry people and had good laughs :lol: We choose picnic spots with no monkey activity like Mlondozi At Nkhulu one morning just as I was about to put a rusk in my mouth it was gone like magic! That was so funny :lol:

Yissie ouens, you make a day of it hey! How long do you stay at the picnic spot to put all this stuff together. But heck it looks good. I think I'll give it a bash next time but just the eggs and the sausage.
Takes a lot quicker than you think. If you don't do onions, which take a while, you can be done in 10-15 minutes I reckon (at least the cooking part - eating is much quicker! :twisted: ).

We quite enjoyed our cookup at Lijersdraai in KTP in July, we were the only ones at the picnic spot for almost the whole time. Very peaceful

The best are the flat chicken strips, only available from Woolworths. (looks like bacon)
That gets slapped on the skottel with grilled tomato, sliced red onions, eggs, and toast.
On some mornings, we alternate the tomatoes with mushrooms.
It all gets washed down with some cold, fresh juice.


Nothing in the world can beat a skottel brekkie in the kruger park.

I really enjoyed all the different posts on picnic spot brekkies, most people seem to have their own ideas even if only with a slight twist.
For as long as I can remember, making breakfast has been an important part of our Kruger visits, and like Isinkwe we really go overboard, I can almost say that my skottel is the first item to be packed.
When we owned a Companion camper we made breakfast at so many different places because everything was at hand, no need to get out of the camper. Water holes and dams were the ideal spots.
Because we love Shingwedzi, Red-rocks, but mostly Tshanga look-out was our favourite brekkie stop.
After selling our camper we continued having our skottel breakfasts at Tshanga where most people just stop to have a quick look-see from the rocks, and a visit to the long-drop.
Tshanga of course does not have water, only two flat rock tables with long rock seats alongside where tourists sometimes have a bite and a drink from their flasks, but I have never seen anybody else making breakfast or lunch. I am not sure if what we do is really the right thing to do, but there are no signs or notices to prohibit making a meal.
I am curious to know if anybody else has done that, or still makes a breakfast at Tshanga

Matthys, if you like hashbrowns stop at a Wimpy next time you go to Kruger and buy a couple half-cooked.
Wimpy has a hashbrown breakfast on their menu and will sell you some if you twist their arms, I have often bought from Wimpy Komatipoort

We usually do scrambled eggs, bacon, tomato and bread on the skottel. Those nice and thin piri-piri pork rashers make a nice change from bacon as well!

Whenever we go to KNP French toast is always the first item going on to the menu.
We also love doing flap jacks and what a better way to re-start the day after a morning drive with some good wholesome hamburgers. :dance:
