5. Vetkoek and Boerewors – Quick & Yummy
First up, we’ve got a South African classic – Vetkoek and Boerewors! These fluffy fried dough buns are the perfect vessel for sizzling boerewors sausages.

3. Pap & Kaiings – A Trip Down Memory Lane
At number three, we present our signature dish – Pap & Kaiings! Take a trip back in time with this beloved South African favourite. Dive into a generous serving of pap, a traditional maize meal, topped with crispy kaiings – those irresistible pork cracklings. Add two perfectly fried eggs and a drizzle of our homemade sheba sauce, and you’ve got a dish that pays homage to South African culinary heritage. Available at Berg en Dal, Olifants, and Letaba Camps!
2. Breakfast Bunny Chow – Grab It and Go
