Do we know what is happening in Skukuza when they close the restaurant down there? I am heading there in August so keen to know what I will be eating !
I thought there was two restaurants there so are they both closed or one still operating?



Dear 'Mites;

The following outlines the planning:
- Compass to operate till the 21st of July 2014;
- On the 22nd of July we hope to have 2 operators (Tourvest as the Cattle Baron franchisee as well as the Boskombuis which is operated by Tindlovu and who operated when the Satara, Pretoriuskop, Letaba and Olifants restaurants were refurbished) to offer an interim offering – potjie kos and other South African meals under canvas – not to be missed. Final arrangements in this regard is in process;
- During this time Tourvest will also do the conference catering from the conference centre kitchen;
- Opening of the new Cattle Baron Main Restaurant and Take Away is anticipated for last week of September 2014;
- Selati to remain closed due to legal process.

Just finishing off our 7 day trip to Kruger area today. I have to admit after all the years of enduring substandard food for ridiculous prices , what a breath of fresh air to be able to eat at M&B Lower Sabie. Hats off to KNP to moving with the times. Added bonus seeing Leopard from viewing deck today :D . Add to your lis of things to do. Please all remember , M&B is not Mcdonalds , so relax and you will get what you requested.

The Boskombuis is definitely in operation, right in front of the shop, so the renovations are in progress.

Thanks ecojunkie - I was in Skuz beginning of July and saw that the BRAAI DEN (? not sure of the name?) which operated under the big tree near the take away cafeteria and restaurant, was very popular with the overseas visitors who stopped with the game viewing vehicles. Although not always knowing what the "pap" was, it seemed as if they enjoyed the BOS or African food very much :thumbs_up: .

M&B at LS is also a great improvement. Keep it up guys.

Any update on the available eating facilities at Skukuza - we.re there for a couple of days from Friday before moving onto Lower Sabie? Would really just be for a lunch bite that we would probably use them - is the boskombuis open and what sort of meals do they sell. I have a problem in that one of our people doesn't eat starch (no bread or chips or pap) - have a feeling that could be a bit of a challenge?

The shop in Skukuza also sells lots of meals, salads etc so sure your friends will be able to find something suitable.

Is there a topic where we can consult the different menus of each restaurant in the main camps?
We're flying in to Skukuza for 14 days in november and are looking if we need to go shopping outside instead of going to the restaurants.
Thanks for your help
Alex

Welcome alexmagda :D
As far as I know there is no detailed menu but a few information on the restaurants in the camps informations on the forum.

Dining at Kruger – an experience not to be missed!

For example Skukuza :

Selati Station Grillhouse

Enjoy your stay :thumbs_up:

These are basically the franchised menus.

Cattle Baron which will be opening in Skukuza soon.

Mugg & Bean at Lower Sabie, Satara, Olifants and Letaba

Wimpy Menu Pretoriuskop

Please note the Selati Restaurant is not open currently while some legal issues are being sorted out.

Mopani & B & D both have the Tindlovu group.

Shingwedzi and Punda has stayed the same as far as I know.

The notice on my reservation letter for October 2014 says that the restaurant will be closed from 2014.07.30 to 2014.09.30 for improvements.
I really hope they will keep to the schedule within a week or two as we will be celebrating our twentieth wedding anniversary ( :gflower: to SO ) in Skukuza during our stay and would appreciate a proper dine-out in stead of the usual braai.
We have had good and bad experiences @ Cattle Barron before, but trust this will be another good experience judging by all the positive feedback about the other completed "take-overs".

I will keep fingers crossed that it is open and that you will be able to celebrate your anniversary with a wonderful meal.

Hi, we're leaving for Skukuza this Thursday (11-September) for 3 nights. I have diligently looked but can't seem to find what dining options will be available with Selati closed and the main restaurant being refurbed? :? We're not packing for self-catering and per my reservation letter, they expected to offer some sort of meals. Can someone please advise of the current situation and what to expect? :hmz:

There is a 'boskombuis' outside the shop which serves meals. There is also the option of going to the restaurant at the golf club.

No special dress code at all. It is very casual. You can only use it in the day time anyway as it is outside the tourist camp. It is near the nursery if you are looking for directions.
