Shisa nyama

A shisa nyama is a Zulu term for “braai”, which is an Afrikaans word for “barbecue” – but it means much more than just grilled meat on an open fire. A South African shisa nyama or braai is a beloved national pastime (with its own public holiday) that centres on community.

"Sitting around the fireplace until long after the food has gone down – sharing stories, playing games or quietly enjoying the warmth of the fireplace, family and friends."

At Rosenview, we cherish family time - especially over a good meal, in a gorgeous setting - so we came up with an idea to extend it as an extra service offering to our guests. Our convenient, all-in-one braai packages help you spend less time planning meals and more time with your people.

We have five braai areas (one indoor and four outdoors) which are equipped with tables, chairs and benches; and surrounded by our signature views and nighttime noises of local fauna. The fireplaces are boma-syle (fire pits) which makes them suitable for both cooking and enjoying the ambience of the campfire - as centrepiece for conversation, playing games or braaing marshmallows.

Our braai packages feed two people, but can be multiplied accordingly to a cover a maximum total of 24 people. Each of our three packages includes the following basics:

  • Braai tools
  • 4kg wood or 5kg charcoal
  • Firelighters
  • Cutlery
  • Basic spices
  • A variety of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages are available from the mini-bar fridges in the guest rooms.

Family Favourite:
Good Old Boerie Rolls | R210 (2 people)

Good old South African boerewors (literally “farmer’s sausage”) is a favourite with all South Africans, including one of our most famous citizens, archbishop Desmond Tutu.

  • 4 x pieces Grabouw boerewors (Grabouw boerewors is made using a much finer ground spice and has a natural, earthy taste)
  • 4 x fresh-baked hotdog rolls with butter

The Tjop & Dop | R220 (2 people)

A tjop en dop is yet another South African phrase about braaing, literally meaning a “meat chop and drink”– and with definite connotations of social festivity.

For a little bit luxury, choose the larney (posh) special – and get some steaks on the braai grid.
