The Cookswell Safari Oven – A Review With A View

The Kenyan Camper

Hello again, so you remember I was recently in Amboseli right? Of course you do, its the last article I wrote. On solo camping trips I’m usually reduced to foraging for edible roots and wild berries so it’s always quite a treat to have some good eats. Self – catering accomodation is a great opportunity to flex those cooking muscles no matter how stringy on non-existent they may be.

I’ve known about Cookswell Jikos for sometime now, so Teddy graciously allowed me to pick one up to try out. I’d been very curious about these safari ovens for quite a while and I was stoked to have a chance to finally try one out.

So the other day I was busy coding, straining my head with java programming language when I received a text from a pal. ‘Are you on for this?’ read the text, accompanied by a screenshot of a trip planned to Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park in Kiambu county. It had been a while since I was to those sides, and never been to that Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park area at all. Being a Travel Bug is a disease, I didn’t even think about it.

And so on Saturday early morning we were on our way to Thika. It’s a long way out, probably a 3 hour or more long journey. I slept the whole way, blame it on the friends who dragged me out of bed that Friday night. I woke up somewhere between Thika and our destination. Great scenery!
