South Africa & Namibia

070910 Franschhoek (Reuben's)
Springbok steak at Reuben’s in Franschhoek, South Africa

I don’t think I was ever hungry during our four week trip to South Africa and Namibia. We were so well fed during our travels and had a hard time resisting all of the different game meats offered (zebra, oryx, springbok, blasbok, ostrich, crocodile, kudu…forgetting the others but no lions were involved). I was pleasantly surprised that all of the game meats were surprisingly sweet, succulent and not at all gamy (some more than others, of course…oryx was my favorite).

We had a great dinner at Joe’s Beerhouse in Windhoek, Namibia but unfortunately were not able to take any pictures of the delicious oryx carpaccio (a type of antelope) and zebra/ostrich/alligator/chicken skewer we had. Tourists are strongly advised NOT to take anything with them while walking around town lest it be stolen, so you will just have to take my word that oryx carpaccio and zebra steak were mind blowing. Here’s what I did take pictures of:
