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:

Stephan, what a great thread :thumbs_up:

We sometimes make ''bubble and squeeck'' from the left overs from the previous night's braai. Add lots of onions and tomato and good old Chakalake for spice. I often do extra potato on the braai to soak up all the flavor.

My mouth is watering.

I'm looking forward at enjoying it all during my next visit to Kruger, February next year.

Just one question: why nobody makes pancakes?


I hope you enjoy your visit lucbo :thumbs_up:

My daughter sometimes makes pancakes, but not at the picnic spots. We sometimes reach a point where we feel ''proteined out'' and don't want to look at another piece of meat. That is when my daughter takes over.

Afsaal used to make really lovely pancakes. It was worth a special trip. Yummy, yummy, yummy.

We don't hire a skottle anymore, we bring along our own, sometimes we have the "traditional Kruger" breakfast which comprises of the following: Bacon, mushrooms, fried eggs or scrambled, fried tomato, fried onion, toast and of course tea, then we sometimes have the following: Muesli or oats, rusks and tea and then sometimes we have the following: Boiled eggs with melba toast or provita and tea, and when we are tired of all of the above I make crumpets with jam. When in the Kruger we only have breakfast and supper, we do a lot of nibbling in the car during the day, biltong, cashew nuts, dried mango etc.

same here Twent Dweller. Its a late breakfast and then supper for us too.
We keep what we call a "nush bag" in the car - filled with all kinds of yummy things like biltong, fruit, nuts, biscuits. Like a mini tuckshop :)
Always snacking - maybe that's why I always come back a big heavier after a kruger visit. :doh:

A favorite of mine at Tshokwane. Venison roll with sheba sauce and homemade ginger beer.

This is what my dogs do. Begging at Nkulu :roll:

Our daily routine more or less goes like this: have coffee/herbal tea while showering, packing etc. First part of drive have coffee, rusks and sometimes a naartjie (tangerine- type fruit) in the car. Around 11.30/midday we try to get to one of the picnic spots, hire a skottle, then the fun really begins.

Our brunch consists of bacon, sausage, baked beans, tomato, slightly pre-cooked fried potato, fried onion, mushrooms, fried eggs, toast (put on the side of the skottle it does great). Sometimes we combine the bread and eggs and make French toast. All this washed down with some fruit juice and followed by more coffee. ?We have got it down to a fine art and the cooking doesn't take long at all.

We then usually skip "lunch" and have an early supper.

Fantastic thread!

Whilst breakfast is such an important prep for the day, I recommend packing a napsack full of chocolate brownies. Woolies do a great packet mix, add lots of chopped hazelnuts, and just bung in the oven.

Believe me, as much as you will have to distract yourself from watching the little burrow to see the meercat baby pop its head out, those little morsels of chocolate delight will help you keep on going for many many hours more.

The only downside (?), is that when you are travelling with a party, they all catch on... so make sure you have a hidden supply :-)

Delish!!!

A mouth watering thread.... :D

Also done the gas braai renting at the picnic spots with eggs, bacon, tomato onions and toast. The one challenge is that the braais get sticky and one must then know how to cope without eggs breaking etc. Nevertheless, alsways lekker to soak up the atmosphere with smells around, scenery etc.

Lunch time, especially in summer, we enjoyed some cucumber, lettace, tomato, cheese and ham sandwiches. It is always refreshing after the morning drive. Then we hit the bed for a power nap or swim and then energised for the afternoon drive shift.

Sometimes when we braaied the evening, we braai enough for the next morning when we do a stop at some points and enjoy a boere sausage on roll or cheese griller etc.

The biltong bites, nuts and dried fruit always great in the car between meals. :thumbs_up:

Torticat is always in a hurry leaving camp in the morning so breakfast is yoghurt with muesli and a few cups of Tea. Lunch is Avocado and Tomato Sammies with cheese. The braai is reserved for the evening, when I am usually so tired that I don't care what I eat.

We never have a "meal" for lunch, we have things like, a handful of nuts or biltong, maybe an apple, some dried fruit roll or dried mango etc. Breakfast and dinner are our most important meals of the day. We are normally driving around at lunchtime or at the pool or even having a nap :hmz: :hmz: and most of the time it is just too hot to eat
