If you are cooking for yourself, Boerewors are huge twirling beef sausages which are very good. You can even get Simba crisps which are Boerewors flavoured. Biltong is a nice snack if you like dried, flavoured meat, this can be anything from dried Ostrich to dried chilli-Beef.

Drink

Pack a cooler box and fill it with your favourites cool drinks. This is a hot area, you will need to cool down. You will be able to buy ice and drinks at filling (gas) stations. Great drinks to have are malibu (alcoholic), dry lemon, soda water, your choice of whiskey and some juices. Ice-cream and some bottled water are also great

Stay safe

Locals tend to jump from the top of the waterfall by the bridge at the bottom of town, needless to say this is about 25-30m high and is very dangerous if you don't hit the water correctly.
