I have this little jingle running amok in my head. It may have something to do with the fact that its a Friday, almost lunch time and that I am looking at pics of the new Bush Braai venue at Askari Game Lodge in Magalies where we spent a gorgeous lazy lunch last week this time.
After an eventful game drive where I almost landed on our MD’s lap after misjudging the game drive vehicle’s force going downhill, we ended at a breathtaking clearing a few kilometres from the main lodge. The Bush Boma is in forest and red rocks from the farm have been used to demarcate the area with a hip-height wall all around. The fire pit is surrounded by cut tree trunks and benches – a lovely rustic set up inviting you to sit down and immerse yourself in the stillness.
Our lunch consisted of a simple gourmet burger selection, fresh from the grid, and the most delicious pancakes, berry coulis and cream dessert. (Confession time: I had two. So did the GM from Fairway Hotel).
The Bush Boma area will be the venue of choice with year end functions coming up and GM Graham Shipway explained that braai and spitbraai menus would be more suitable for this venue. When booking the Bush Braai for a year end function, a portion of the menu price will go toward the Askari Rhino Fund.
The Bush Braai and game drive package is available for overnight as well as day guests and pre-booking is essential due to the limited number of people the area can accommodate.
Before you light your braai fires at home tonight, have a look at our Proudly SA Braai Pinterest Board for some great ideas. The Bacon wrapped corn is on my wishlist – what a delicious treat for braai!: https://za.pinterest.com/guvonhotels/braai-proudly-south-africa/
