Mopane Braai Wood


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Feddie Rheeder, founder and owner of Mr Mopane.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

Mr Mopane will remain in operation, striving to offer the excellent service it’s customers is accustomed to.

The much better choice!

“For me it is personal and that is why I have done study after study, comparing Mopane to other firewood like kameeldoring wood and rooikrans, and everytime Mopane comes out the winner”

Freddie Rheeder


Indigenous to South Africa, it is rated as one of the best firewood for sale in SA! It is extremely hard at the core and very dry. It makes extremely hot coals and has the ability to maintain it’s heat for a very long time.

Harvesting process

Our wood is harvested from dead Mopane ( Mopani ) trees in the Kamenjab area in Namibia. We obtained a harvesting permit and it is renewed every 3 months through inspections from the authorities. The permit is only for the harvesting of dead trees, which means the process has no negative impact on the environment. The wood is then exported with a permit from Namibia and imported with a permit from authorities in South Africa. Before the wood is exported from Namibia it is fumigated according to regulations and also certified.


Some Advantages

Starts easily

Minimum quantity of fire starters are required to get the fire going!

Slow burning

The long burning effect of this wood is one of the reasons why you end up with such great and long lasting coals.

Long Lasting Coals

Apart from being a Slow Burner, it's coals are extremely long lasting. In many case studies it has shown us that you can easily have 2 - 3 braai sessions without having to have a second fire going.


In my personal opinion it is a better firewood than Kameeldoring wood and Rooikrans, but do not take my word for it, try it yourself!

Freddie this wood is fantastic. I’ve never seen coals last so long and the burning time is superb. I can’t wait to cook with it! Thanks for delivering on a public holiday. Great service.
It burns fantastic. I will check the taste of the pizza later. Damn nice. Tell the guys no problem using the wood in oven.
Eerste keer wat ek Mopane braai hout gebruik en wat 'n awesome experience! Droog, hard, brand maklik en warm, warm kole vir lank!!! Beter as kameeldoring!

Na vele mislukte pogings dié winter om ordentlike droë kaggelhout te vind, het ek vandag uiteindelik die pot goud aan die einde van die reënboog gevind! Mopane hout vanaf Namibië. Diens – uitstekend! Hout -uitstekend! Nou gaan ons braai, kyk vure maak & snoes saans voor die kaggel lê. Kontak gerus vir M Mopane as jy regte kwaliteit hout en diens wil hê! Dankie Mr Mopane, my soektog kan nou ophou.
