Braai night

Leave a comment

braaiThe Namibians sure like their meat. And their barbecue, which here goes by the Afrikaans word “braai”. And what’s on the braai is most likely not pork or beef or mutton. Perhaps chicken if you are lucky, but most likely oryx, kudu, or buffalo.

Speaking of meat, if you end up buying “beef jerky” or “biltong” as it is called here, it does not even always state what kind of meat the package contains. Be prepared for mainly oryx and kudu. Those magnificent animals are reduced to air-dried meat in a plastic snack bag.

Thank goodness there are vegetarian options for the braai, as well. Lots of them.walvisbaysunset(Walvis Bay, Namibia; July 2017)
