Thats great info, Thanks very much ecojunkie, I also did a little research and it looked like the Outdoor Warehouse website has what I am looking for, I will also take a look at Checkers, thanks again.

Hi All

Could anyone tell me if Highveld Mall is a good spot to stop off and stock up on groceries on the journey from Johannesburg to Malelane gate. I believe it has a PicknPay and a Woolworths.

Thank you!

I know it's a bit late for Marge going into KNP from Tzaneen but we have stocked up at the Checkers and Food Lovers Market at the Tzaneen Centre on the junction of R71/R36. Great selection and lovely meat from FLM. Coming in through the Agatha forest is very pretty. :thumbs_up:

Never shopped in Dullstroom, but if you are going through Lydenburg as well I can vouch for the Checkers in the new mall at the bottom of the Long Tom Pass?

As far as I can remember, there are no big supermarkets like Pick n Pay etc in Dullstroom, but there was adequate shopping available with a couple of butcheries, bottle store and several small supermarkets. :thumbs_up:

Hopefully someone else here will know more. :thumbs_up:

The shops in Malelane have a big Spar and also a P & Pay and the one in Komatipoort is a big Spar and there is also a very good butcher.

I wish I could give you more details Minettest, but they are called simply "The Butcher" and in the Komati Spar Centre! :?
I really don't have any more details than that and I can't seem to find them on the internet.
I just usually drop by when we are there and pick up the meat for our stay or as much as we need.

Shops in Dullstroom are more geared to the tourist rather than shopping. Very nice, independent places but definitely tourist orientated. Great coffee shop but I can't remember what it was called :wall: There was a Millies place but I was very disappointed in their stock, not a patch on the N4 shop.

Lyndenberg would be better.

Hi Dikkes.

I am not sure where in Komatipoort, but if you leave from CB and go to Marloth Park. There is people just before you enter who sell very good quality wood "hardekool". I bought some of it in July this year.

I hope this will help. :thumbs_up:

Lower Sabie 1-2 July. :mrgreen:

Glory to God.

One day closer to my next visit
