Potluck Boskombuis

South African in Blyde River Canyon

Look out for the South African flag and follow the red-dirt track to this 'bush kitchen', a makeshift shelter beneath gnarly boulders and trees decorated with animal skulls, its terrace nudging the rocks in the Treur River. Enjoy a cold craft beer and dishes from steaks and spare ribs to bobotie and beef potjie stew, cooked without electricity.

Bring a cushion for the hard wooden stools and, if you'd like to work up a good appetite, ask about the 7km riverside hiking trail to Fann's Falls.
