Heritage Day has become a day of enjoying downtime with family and friends around a welcoming South African braai.
If you’re the one entertaining friends and family this year round, it’s good to start ticking off your checklist now: grill, wood, coals, tongs; and of course, meat and drinks. But, what about the smaller stuff that adds to the success of a great braai?
Make your outdoor decor complete with the ultimate braai accessories:
