    I ate the mountain oysters from a sable once, although I did not know what I was eating until after I had downed a fair share of the fried "snacks"
    pretty damn good though
    Saw that done with red hartebeest but declined, lol. I would have tried it if I did not know what it was.

    my absolute favourite was eland tenderloin. My second was eland cutlets and my third is ox-tail stew (cape buf tail).I must say that I didn't have a bad meal while in camp. I once ate lamb while hunting in the Karoo. It was by far the best lamb that I have ever tasted.My wife and I ate fried mopane worms once in zim and they were good. I know that food just tastes better when one has been hunting but all of these and more were wonderful.
    Cheers, Mike

    Karoo Lamb, Cape Buffalo tail soup, Eland filets marinated and grill over wood coals. Have been very lucky with great food with Ko-Ka Tsara Safaris in South Africa and Charlton McCallum Safaris in Zimbabwe. Awsome meals and good cold African beer!

    Absolute #1 Gemsbok tenderloin from an animal I had shot 7 months earlier cooked on a Braii with an Afrikaans recipe of cream and (?) sauce.

    I've also had genuine off the farm Boerwoers that rated light years ahead of the crap from a supermarket.

    Elephant Bilton from the Hwange N.P. elephant culls in 1984. Not too spicey and surprisingly delicious.

    Bobotie prepared in camp by an ex restaurant owner and his wife from Cape Town was bloody nice.

    Chris Troskie's wife's Tunisian meatballs.

    My favorite has to be the dry sausage stick they make, cannot get enough. When it comes to regular meals the best I've had is the tenderloins of Gemsbok, Impala, and Karoo Lamb, which was really great (not by nature a lamb lover) grilled on the Braai. Enjoyed alot of these with Buck at Ko-Ka Tsara, Hello Buck!

    Leaving in a few days for Africa and Eland is on my list, if I am fortunate I'll have them cook some of the liver. Those of you who have had the Eland liver, was it fried, grilled, or what? I had the same experience as the other gentleman, my mom loved it and used her love to torture the kids.

    Fresh Oryx liver on the coals / Fresh Oryx 'pofadder' on the coals (some intestinal piece turned inside-out stuffed with liver/ heart / kidneys and other secret potions) Oryx Fillet dunked in olive oil before flashbraaing it on the coals. Add wild Omajova mushroom grilled with garlic butter on top as desert, round it off with a tot (or 3) Remy Martin cognac and a Cohiba, and serenity is me x 100!

    Impala Tenderloin was great. I also shot a springbok that we skinned and brought back to the lady who was running a bed & breakfast where we were staying. She slow cooked it and it was one of the best things I've ever ate. She definitely prooved she could cook one if we brought her one!

    Wish I could echo your last sentence but..had some springbok cutlets that even the PH didnt think much of at one camp. Pretty gamy. Certainly the exception though as 99 percent of the meals I have had in Africa have been outstanding.

    In RSA: Eland steaks

    In Zimbabwe: Sauted medallions of lioness with onions, eaten as appetizers with sundowners around the fire ring.

    How would you describe the lioness in taste?

    I could be a wise guy and say "It tastes just like chicken," but more accurately, from what I remember, it had the flavor of veal. Some of the PH's cooked it--seems like they cut it in medallions about two inches in diameter and maybe a half inch thick, melted some butter in a big pan, added onions and sauteed everything--

    I was reluctant at first to try it--after all, it IS cat (the other white meat) but after being encouraged only as PH's can encourage a client, I tried it and then was grubbing around with everyone else for my share.

    It sounds good, thanks! When my PH in RSA said we were having bushpig for dinner I said great, I love ham. He laughed and said it doesnt take taste like ham! He was right, taste like beef roast!

    Lion....that is something you dont get to eat every day for sure!! I would definitley try!

    For me it was the Oryx, and Wildebeest loins. My PH Van Zyl marinated them all day. Then grilled them over a wood fire....oh I could taste it now!!! Nothing I ate there was bad. Had some form of Impala pot pie the lead cook Wilhelmina made, one word great. It had a sweet taste that was amazing. Grilled Kudu and Springbok. Guinea fowl that was baked I belive. I could go back for the food alone!

    Day 1:

    I always try to get someone to shoot an Eland and tell them it's the most difficult of trophies. This way we get a huge supply of biltong for the next two weeks and it's the best !

    That with a lorry load of cold beer takes care of all your nutritional needs of an evening time............
