We don't go the whole hog anymore (used to do that when we had the kids with us :D ), but I love watching others do that 8) and am amazed by the yummy spread of condiments/jams/sauces/etc that appear on the picnic tables :D

Isinkwe, oh yes definitely. After the rusks and coffee at dark thirty, we follow up with one of those fantastic brunches at a picnic site. Just wish we could rent one of those flat bottomed/paella type pans for the skottel though. Much better than the original skottel dish. We can't bring such a big and heavy thing over on the plane in our luggage though ..... drat!!!! So looking forward to these fabulous breakfasts in Kruger next month!!!

Sometimes the pan is not big enough and you have to cook in relays :D

Hi! :D

I'm new to the forum. Thank you all for the wonderful questions and answers here. :gflower:

I have a question on the topic of breakfasts/lunches:

We are visiting the KNP in October (3 nights) and I was wondering if it's better to bring my own 'gasbraaier'/gas-stove or to rent one? We are staying at Sudwala Lodge for a midweek and then touring through the KNP over the weekend (picking my sister up in Nelspruit on the way) so space is a bit limited in the car. Are the prices for renting it reasonable or would you suggest we take our own?

I was actually thinking of just making a bunch of scones and muffins before the weekend and having that for lunch every day (we'll probably have cereal for breakfast if we're not eating at a restaurant and a braai at our camp for dinner) but then I saw this post and realised that I really want to have a braai at a picnic site :D :thumbs_up:

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!

Warm welcome to the forum EElse! :clap:

Especially with limited space in the car I would advise that you rent at one of the picnic sites.
It costs around R25 for 30 mins and well worth it as the attendant takes it away afterwards and its all washed and cleaned.

You can have a read through the topic on Picnic Sites, Info & Advice. for lots of info and advice.
Enjoy!

Thank you, Elsa!

R25 is really not bad, I'll discuss it with my husband but think that's the way to go. Thank you also for the link!

Have a wonderful day!

isinkwe,
Your skottle brekkie looks so very yummy :dance:
I must admit you certainly do include everything and more :wink:
I think you must be one of the best "Skottle breakfast makers" ever 8) :thumbs_up: :thumbs_up:

isinkwe, that looks amazing. I have planned boerie rolls and eggs for our first picnic breakfast at Afsaal next week, the only difference to yours is that I think I will make tomato and onion smoor/gravy for the rolls too. Love your photo's!!!
