    Hi Dobs,

    Oh yes try them, it is quite simple to make! Use Chutney or Apricot Jam with slices of Cheese, Tomato and Onions.

    Agreed.The "broodjie"with only cheese on thats mine.We sometimes make "papwors"in the place of the bread it is "pap"mixed with relish and bacon stuffed into a sausage casing and grilled over the coals.

    Chiky, means agressive.
    like: that tuskless is a chiky bastard.
    chiky to me sounded like somenthing like a chihuahua dog, something petite and fluffy. Not in Africa.

    That's one of those sort of universal words, believe its usually spelled cheeky. Brits use it, we use it, been around. Not necessarily aggressive but more smart aleck with threat potential.

    I'm living in a smaller korean town right now and randomly we have a South African restaurant, appropriately named "Braai Republic." They've even got taxidermy up on the walls... kudu and waterbuck shoulder mounts, gemsbok kudu and warthog euros, zebra rug, etc.

    The place definitely brings back memories of our safari.

    During our recent safari, our PH and our videographer (brothers), used the phrase "Shap" or ShapShap." Or at least that's how it sounded to us.

    It was how they pronounced "sharp" and they meant in the sense of good or affirmative.

    "Look, a big waterbuck!"
    "Ah, shap shap. He's a good one. Lets go."

    "Should we hike down this large cliff, and across that large plain to chase down the kudu we spotted two kilometers away?"
    "Shap. Lets do it."

    The best I can add to this thread is not really a word or sayings while on safari, its body language. While riding on the truck or stalking trough the bush, if the trackers or tracker and PH are speaking in Afrikaans, and they all of of sudden get quiet, eyes get big as baseballs , quietly start pointing, or look at each other, say 1 or 2 words, and the PH says come quickly!! Then its time for the heart rate to go up!
