Game meat restaurants in Cape Town

Game meat restaurants in Cape Town

Have you ever tasted South African venison? African plains’ game meat is one of the healthiest sources of lean protein, which is why it’s a favourite food to include in a Paleo meal plan. Health and fitness aside, venison, such as impala, kudu and wildebeest, is delicious if prepared and cooked correctly.

In South Africa, plains game hunting and wingshooting is not only a leisure activity, it is also a source of food and nourishment. If you’d like to experience the hunter-gatherer’s way in unique South African fashion, contact Rovos Hunting Safaris, otherwise taste your first venison dish at these restaurants in Cape Town.

Whether you’re visiting South Africa for a African safari holiday or if you are a local, treat your palate to something new and exciting!
