Dikkes, as far as I know all the main camps will offer them provided there are the correct minimum numbers booked but let me try and see if I can find out officially.
I certainly know Lower Sabie, Olifants, Mopani, Skukuza, Satara etc does.
There are no longer Bush breakfasts offered.

Currently Shingwedzi does not offer them because their Braai facility was washed away in a flood. I tried to book for September and that is what they told me.

Any specific reason why breakfasts were canceled?

Bush Breakfast!? I have never heard of such a thing. Sounds like the closest thing to heaven I can imagine.

Not 100% sure but I would assume as they were not that popular but that's off the top of my head? :?

Some up-to-date info . . .

I inquired about a Bush Braai at Talamati (bushveld camp of course) for our stay April 22 - 23, 2017. Thandazile (camp hospitality manager) answered with all of the details:

"Bring and braai rather not a bush braai per se, because of the remoteness of our location. Our bring and braais are very popular among our guests because of the passion that we normally put in them to ensure they are memorable and worth the value of your money. They cost R490.00 p.p they include a drive of 1 1/2 hr and a braai at mudzandzeni picnic spot for another 1 1/2 hr where the food that you brought will be prepared by you the guest , with the assistance of the camp staff. The fire wood is provided and prepared as a floor fire and braai fire, welcome drink will be provided for guests as well as cutlery, crockery plates glasses and table and chairs dressed in black table runner and a white table cloth."

That's really interesting. Nice to see the bush camps offering something extra like that.

What are the age limits to participate in a bush braai? Didn't see anything posted on the camp pages.

I would imagine it would be the same as for guided drives which is no children under the age of 6 years old.
Let me dig a bit further and confirm.

I could see the age restriction being either 7, like a night drive or 12 like a day walk.
