SA’s Best Braai Spots

We’re blessed to live in a country where family, camaraderie, afternoon braais, and great Summer weather reigns. So gather the troupes and have yourself a fantastic holiday!



Animal Farm

This one’s for the kiddies! or young at heart who need a lively dose of cute fluffy animals. The name says it all, and you get to braai there too!

Sheffield Beach Road



Paradise Valley Nature Reserve

And here you have it. A tropical emerald paradise.

10 Oxford Road, Pinetown



Laguna Beach

A well worth-it day out! Not many beaches allow you to braai on and around the premises so go out and enjoy.

Laguna Beach, Durban




Innesfree Park

If you can’t venture far, this little monument of green can be your inner city getaway. Shaded by Weeping Willows.

Barlow Park, Sandton



Emmarentia Dam

This location is always a winner, and an old time favourite for weekend music concerts’ and fishing family day trips. The atmosphere is lifting, as the space is wide and open, with plenty of space for some light hearted competition on the field, as well as shaded paths for bicycle rides.

Greenside, Thomas Bowler Street, Roosevelt Park



The Lion Park

If you haven’t been, as a citizen of Jozi, it’s the first step in the right direction. Our wildlife is exquisite, one of kind. And at the Lion Park you can oogle and aww over these magnificent animals, by the comfort of your afternoon fire.

Corner Malibongwe, Honeydew




Silvermine Nature Reserve

This well-ventured spot atop the mountain is arguably one of the best braai and picnic spots in Cape Town. The beautiful Dam and far side waterlily garden, is picturesque and let’s its visitors truly grasp the concept of escape. Braai facilities are set up between rock shrub along the outskirts of the dam, and if you’re brave you can swim!

Oudekraal, Cape Town

This sheltered beach nestled between Camps Bay and Llandudno offers a scenic braai area, showcasing an ocean view. This location is great for the family.

Victoria Road, Oudekraal



Tokai Forest

This local favourite never disappoints. A wonderland forest full of meandering paths and new photo opportunities.

Buffels Bay and Bordjiesdrif at Cape Point

Noordhoek and Cape Point, two gems of Cape Town. It’s a guaranteed memory maker. The diehard Cape scenery and a scene set with grassy picnic spots and tidal pools, is a great family day out.

Cnr. Main Rd & Village Lane, Noordhoek



Deer Park

A laid back comfortable shady spot by the trickling river sets you up for a relaxed afternoon hide out. Deer Park offers a few great trails, and when you look back behind you there is the beautiful CBD to take in.
