Our Chefs Inspiration

Gerald started his career in the kitchen as a dishwasher/ crew cook, later qualifying at the top of his class opening new kitchen adventures. He spent 5 years on cruise ships achieving head chef status before Covid19 disrupted the world.

He joined the Thorn Tree Bush camp Team in October 2020, by setting up the Doringbos Kombuis, and has set himself a goal of taking local South African bushveld food and fusing it with his personal “around the world” culinary experience.

Doringbos Kombuis is the perfect place to relax with camping friends and family, share stories and enjoy a journey in our bushveld camping cuisine.
