As a vegetarian I wasn't even tempted to go for the pounds 19.99 South African Braai
- a dish of steak, gammon, burgers, sausages and chicken.
After three days of hard work and meetings, they got to taste the best of South Africa's food and wines with a visit to Spier Wine Estate, followed by a safari and traditional boma braai

We were pleased to see a tap and a braai
stand, plus our own ablution block, in campsite number one.

Saturday evening the Southern Girls Conference enjoyed a braai
. After dinner, under the stars, each Community Group presented their future plans for the Girls Club in their school.
