Tafel Lager in Namibia, easily.Not to hijack the post but I am curious what you think is the best beer you have had in Africa. I tend to drink Windhoek because it is available and very good. LaurenTina is a very tasty Mozambican beer especially the dark version. I think the best beer I have had on safari was St Louis in Botswana. Not always available everywhere. The bar/cafe across the street (dirt road) from the airport in Maun has it. I think the name of the place was Wings or something similar. Interesting place, reminded me a little of Ricks Place in Casablanca. Lots of pilots, flight attendants, and PHs in varying shades of inebriation.

Well sh#t now that’s an idea might have to do the same in JuneWhen I went on the 21 day lion hunt in the Zambezi valley in Zimbabwe I knew I needed to take something with me. You see on most safaris I just like to drink what they have and enjoy the local beers and yes now the scotch. I always hated scotch but spending so much time in Africa you can only drink so much beer! Now I do enjoy scotch of many varieties. When traveling I just want to embrace the culture and drink “whatever pours”!
So back to Zim. I thought what would be better than a really good martini in the middle of the wildness? So I packed a small shaker and a big jar of olives and gambled on being able to get vermouth along with the vodka in the duty free in JNB. I was able to get what I needed at duty free just before jumping on the plane to Harare.
The first few nights I just drank what was in the bar but after taking my lion.....The party was on and the shaker came out of my bag, along with everything else.
What a good time we had. The PH’s, the film crew filing Trophy, and myself sipping martinis in the Omay!
What a memory.
I do love Tafel Lager in Namibia and XXXX beer in Australia. Those two are hard to beat. I know, I’ve had some experience drinking
