RITA VAN DYK From the au­thor of sev­eral bestsellers, in­clud­ing: The 4x4 Cook­book and The 4x4 Sa­fari Cook­book. Rita is well qual­i­fied to write a book on sa­fari cook­ing as she cooked for Pen­duka Sa­faris dur­ing the early 90s as a free­lancer, vis­it­ing re­mote places in Botswana, Namibia and Zim­babwe. She was also the food edi­tor for We­gRy/Drive­Out mag­a­zine. She lives, with her hus­band, on a farm in the Rhenos­ter­spruit Na­ture Con­ser­vancy.

Bundu Food for the African Bush – Whether you are go­ing fish­ing, camp­ing, hik­ing or even for that ex­tended 4 X 4 sa­fari trip to some lo­ca­tion that is only a bunch of num­bers with­out a name, de­ci­pher­able only by your Garmin, then you must have this ex­quis­ite cook­ing “biblette” with you. Thank you baked beans, al­though you have kept out­doors­men alive for cen­turies you’re no longer num­ber 1 when it comes to bush-tucker.

From the com­pre­hen­sive kitchen pack­ing and gro­cery list, to the 10 day meal plan, to the many loved favourites and many new recipes that are sim­ple and easy to pre­pare on the fire or gas burner, there is noth­ing that you might need more in or­der to rough it in the bush.

This well thought out book not only caters to the braai lovers but also for vege­tar­i­ans and those with a lesser palate for meat, meat and some more meat. To top it all, mouth wa­ter­ing deserts that will tame even the tough­est hiker-climber-hunter-gath­er­erfish­er­man. What a re­fresh­ing take on out­door cook­ing as we know it! A must have if you wish to sur­vive the harsh­est out­doors in style.
