I do think those are the same chairs, but the coats of paint must be almost as thick as the wood by now! :P

Was there yesterday, just before World Cup kickoff!

(The Park was like a graveyard most of the day!)

This elephant strolled around quite undisturbed by the tourists...who went pretty close! :shock:

Also a bit of soccer going on!

(Look how empty the place is!)

And then an amusing incident some years ago , at the time when there was still a curio shop at Tshokwane .
A bus arrived , and tourists streamed all over the place .
After looking at the lapa , one elderly gentleman came rushing into the shop , and said to his lady companion : " Eva , Eva , come qvickly ! I vont you to see zis amazing erection ! "
My SO and I just collapsed with laughter :lol: :lol: :lol: And we still chuckle about every time we visit Tshokwane . :)

David's father starts the fire very early and as soon as the first guests arrive they can enjoy a perfect Boerie- or Kudu roll with Sheba. :lol:



Thanks... :thumbs_up: , now I have thought myself hungry...why do I have to wait so long!!!! Is there anything better, other than a Kruger pan breakfast, than pap and wors, or a boerie roll for breakfast?

Tshokwane picnic spot

Unread post by dawiemac » Thu Jul 15, 2010 10:49 am

Hello Everyone,

I'm headed back to the Kruger in Sep for the first time in over 5 years (I moved to Colorado - I know, no excuse!) :)

In the 90's I lived in Middelburg and used to visit the Park very often and if I was in the area I'd always pull into the Tshokwane picnic site for a slice of the best Melktert. It was still on sale last time I was there in '04, but was wondering if that is still the case?

thanks

david

Very warm welcome to the Forum. :clap:

The Milk Tart was certainly available in May/June this year. :D

Sure you are going to have a wonderful reunion with the park after 5 years.
Enjoy!

A lady named Relief who is the domestic help of the section ranger bakes the milktart .
It is thus genuinely homemade .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.
