The new and completely transformed Tshokwane Trading Post & Picnic Site in in the Kruger National Park, situated just an hour away from the Skukuza Rest Camp and and the Satara Rest Camp, will open on 01 October 2016. The transformed spot now offers comfortable stoep-style seating under the dappled light of a new structure, while the rest of the site is dominated by a huge sausage tree.
Visitors can prepare their own food on a gas skottel (which can be hired from the Tshokwane Trading Post, together with essentials like bacon, eggs and fresh bread), or opt for an authentic wood fire meal grilled at the base of a large stone chimney – a one-of-a-kind braai monument. Alternatively, visitors can order from the Tshokwane Trading Post and take the food with them as delicious padkos for their journey through Kruger National Park. Tshokwane Trading Post offers traditional "bush breakfast" (eggs, boerewors and coal-toasted “potbread”), boerie rolls, kudu wors rolls, homemade pies, delectable frikkadels or braaied lamb chops with South African staples like stywepap (stiff maize meal porridge) and tamatie smoer. Freshly prepared salads and traditional treats like homemade milk tart, a fire grilled Rolo-filled marshmallow sandwich or pineapple skewers dusted with cinnamon, pepper & brown sugar are also on offer. An array of unique souvenirs, Tshokwane branded clothing, picnic goodies and much more is also available from the Tshokwane Trading Post.
