The main dish was boerewors (farmer sausage) which they barbequed on their balcony. It was made with lamb. Our new friends explained to us that boerewors can also be made with chicken or pork. These lamb sausages had lots of spices: coriander, black pepper, nutmeg, cloves, allspice.
Gatsby is not your Subway foot-long sandwich, even if it is also a foot long. Inside the bun, they put slap chips (French fries with vinegar), masala steak (meat with masala spices which give it Indian flavor), egg, and peri peri (hot African chili sauce).
There are lots of varieties of Gatsby. What is constant in any Gatsby – slap chips and peri peri sauce. Instead of steak and egg, they can use bologna and lettuce.
At the hotel located a walking distance from the entrance to the Kruger National Park, we were fed three times per day. Because of pleasant weather, we could have all our meals outside, under the large trees. The dinners they served were called braai (barbeque). Several cooks were busy preparing boerewors, lamb chops, steaks, chicken.
We were told that for the proper braai, people must use real wood. Such BBQ gatherings are big social events for friends and family. It was social all right. The members of other tour groups and the independent travelers, all mingled together. Our group was happy to partake in these incredible dinners.
