    you guys have got to quite eating antelope. and forget liver altogether. I'm telling you that warthog steak is really good meat. it does not taste like pork. it tastes like a beef steak.

    my biggest surprise meal was when I paddled a group of people down the upper Zambezi River in a raft. we hired a local company (Zimbabwe) to set up camp and do dinner. they did an awesome job. they set a table by the river with a tablecloth, Hungarian goulash and good wine. Wow!!! that was an amazing evening with the sunset over the water. i will never forget that one.

    kudu steaks , gemsbok ,blue wildebeest fillets , impala chops .giraffe sausages , local billtong, all the salad ingredients that were grown on site .specially the tomatoes (they don't taste that good over here )
    and we tried eland steaks aswell but we didn't hunt that one ,were all fantastic and so well prepared by the camp cook, can only live in the shadows of my memory compared to the fillets of the red hartebeest that I took and i would've gladly eaten nothing else but, for the whole of my African adventure

    Cape Buffalo's balls, wrapped in bacon, then fried. Served up with sudsa (meale meal).
    Fresh chopped Eland liver for breakfast with beans.

    Simple I know but the simple things in life are often the best!

    this gives totally new meaning to tracking and finding wounded game.
    Hahahahahha!

    Lobster, crab & prawns flown in from Dar es Salaam with the client on his first night in camp..... beats the hell out of interminable servings of game meat. :)

    If it has to be game then buffalo tail soup, eland steaks or reedbuck steaks.

    You must remember that we poor deprived safari goers look forward all year long to the "interminable servings" of game meat. When the cook throws on beef and chicken the first couple of days in camp, I squeal like a pig to get game meat! We are only there for a relatively few days.

    I understand that and my reply was slightly tongue in cheek :) ;) but game meat does get slightly tedious by the end of the season.

    I guess I should have added spit roasted or smoked haunch of bushpig to my list of favourites and will say my least favourite is hippo.... A lot of people enjoy it but I find it very greasy.

    Zebra and Eland tenderloin. I was particularly surprised at the dense texture and mild flavor of the Zebra. Everyone told us we would love Eland and we did of course.

    I've been told that elephant meat of any kind is tougher than shoe leather, no matter how it is prepared. Anyone with firsthand experience care to comment?

    I am new here. Just booked my first trip over the pond.
    Right now I am only two cocktails and one hour since a wonderful dinner prepared by my loving wife. I am salivating... this d*!%-*!. thread should be against all rules.
    At this point, I am willing to go on an eating "safari" and leave the weapons at home.
    Boy you guys know how to get someone ready to start packing. I CAN'T WAIT.
    Cheers.....
