We are used to only having cereal for breakfast (which only sustains me until about 10 a.m.). I also have a health problem and have to have food roughly every 2 1/2 hours and I'm not allowed dried fruit or nuts so -

As I'm eating my cereal I make up 2 or 3 rounds of sandwiches. Some of the fillings we use are -

we spread Vegemite (its like thick marmite and we always bring it with us from Australia) on the bread and add cheese and lettuce to form a sandwich.
Another variety of sandwich I make is just bully beef (from a tin) with either tomato sauce or chutney. The sandwiches have to be quick and easy to make as I'm always anxious to get out of the gates. Sometimes if I'm really organized I make them the night before.

We wrap the sandwiches in Alfoil and put them in an esky/cooler bag chilled with bottles of frozen water (our cold drinks for the day), and plenty of fresh fruit.

I always make 2 thermos up - 1 of coffee for me and 1 of tea for my husband.

If the food I have prepared runs out before we get back to camp we usually carry some dry crackers in the car and sweets for emergencies (if we're stuck in an animal roadblock for ages).

I know lots of locals have a huge cooked breakfast at the first picnic spot they come to and that probably lasts them until late afternoon.
Hope this is of some help. :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

I tend to be a nibbler and I am a very, very lazy cook.

Foods that last well and survive the heat if they are kept in a cooler bag:

Woolies hot cross buns
Woolies cheese platters
left over boerri from the night before.
Nando's perinase sauce.

I try to take pro-vita biscuits and a big failing of mine is Lays chips or Woolies kettle fried chips.

For drinks, once my early morning coffee is over, I try to take isotonic drinks that I have frozen in the freezer the night before. I also try to freeze lots of water, if possible.

I also love milk, so I sometimes buy milk on the way and drink it neat... without Amarula. Amarula and milk makes quite a pleasant sundowner drink.. especially if you can pour it over ice.

Sometimes I buy an ice-cream. Simple wafer ice-creams usually do the trick of filling the gap.

I usually make jaffles (on the fire) the night before, and eat them cold the next day, with an apple, dry wors, or other 'snacky' stuff.... and wash it down with beer, of course :D

We also mostly only do breakfast and dinner. With lots of snacking in between 8) (Sweets, chips, sandwiches, provitas, crackers... :redface: Not very healthy! :redface: ) Our drinks include a flask of coffee for early morning drives, frozen water and fruit juice.

We look like we a are moving camp every morning when we leave with all our food and drinks for the day... :roll:

We generally eat breakfast quite late, I guess it could be called brunch. So we normally take a couple snacks with us on when we start the afternoon drive and that see's us through to Dinner. In extreme cases we might get a take away some where and we always keep a tin or two of Tuna in our foodbox

Hi Safari Gal.

We normally only have a cup of coffee in the morning before leaving for the morning drive, and than get back to camp around 10am, where we have a Brekkie at camp, which is normally a full breakfast, so that lasts us for an entire day, and we have lots of junk food throughout the day which includes anything possible, sometimes a packet of noodles help, quick and easy.

We've been overseas heaps of times - Africa 4 times, Bali about 6, NZ a couple of times, and the UK and Europe and yes, we always take vegemite. It comes in a tube now so we don't even have to take a jar (always a worry about breaking in our luggage). I guess all Aussies grow up having vegie (short for vegemite) on toast for breakfast and vegie sandwiches. :hmz: :hmz:

When we're in Kruger I must admit we always put on weight - it comes with just sitting in a car all day and watching animals. I've been home 7 weeks & I'm finding it harder to get back to pre Kruger weight this year!!!!!!! a bit of a worry

After visiting many SANParks over the last 40 years, we had our first skottel braai at Skukuza picnic area at the end of Feb this year. :redface: :redface:

We had always meant to, but somehow just didn't!!! :wall:

We had bacon, eggs, tomatoes and rolls, which were delicious, and will certainly repeat the process soon. :thumbs_up:

We will not forget this experience as it was during the meal that our daughter phoned to tell us we were going to be grandparents!!! :dance:

Kruger is not Kruger without brunch at a picnic spot.

Staying for more than 7 days at a time makes it challenging to keep the variety, but the very first brunch is always a KRUGER brunch:

Fry 2 large onions until soft, add a tin of bully beef (corned beef), cut up in small blocks. Fry these until the eggs become slightly charred. Add 10-12 eggs. Scramble the whole lot, coating the bully beef with the scrambled egg. Take fresh bread rolls. Spread with butter. Put the egg/bully beef concoction inside the roll and flush down with a hot cup of "boeretroos" (coffee)

mmmm... dis mos kos!!

This thread is droolworthy !!

We tried something new last time at Tshokwane - Peri peri chicken livers on the skottel.

Get some chicken livers from Woolies (the best, as they dont need any trimming).
Fry them up with some garlic and onions (mushrooms and peppers optional too).
Then add Ina Paarman's peri-peri sauce; and a touch of cream at the end if it's a special occassion - which it always seems to be :D

Eaten with a crusty buttered roll - magic.

I think this as a breakfast dish might be a Durban thing :hmz:
