Sitting around a fire in camp is a quintessential safari experience. There's nothing more relaxing, soothing and soul-lifting than relaxing fireside and taking in the night sounds of the bush. There's something mesmerizing about watching flames dance against an evening sky, and some experts say this promotes mindfulness since it engages your senses and keeps you in the moment. Often the simplest things in life are the best! Stokbrood, braaibroodjie, and roosterkoek are all foolproof variations of bread cooked over the coals. We twist a basic bread dough around a skewer and seal the ends with a bit of water. Braai over the coals for a fabulous, charred flavour. Enjoy with lots of butter.
Can you ever get enough fresh ocean air? Morukuru Familly De Hoop has an abundance of the stuff. Just step outside - inhale and get your top-up of mood-boosting oxygen.
