Diversity is the name of the game when it comes to carnivorous options in South Africa. The country’s exotic biodiversity yields a smorgasbord of meat options: try kudu (antelope) and springbok for a twist on venison, or taste something more adventurous like warthog, zebra, and crocodile meat. South Africa is home to over 80% of the world’s ostriches, making ostrich meat a popular, healthy red meat alternative.
A South African meat-centric tradition is braai, a social gathering that involves grilling an array of meat over wood or charcoal fires. The spread may include South African sausages called boerewors, Malay-style marinated lamb sosatie kebabs, and T-bone steaks accompanied by traditional pap corn porridge and spicy chakalaka tomato and onion relish.
The perfect cycling snack, cured, spiced meats are a national favorite. Pack chewy, piquant strips of meat called biltong in your jersey pocket and refuel on sophisticated Slim Jim-like dried beef known as Droëwors. Join us for a braai and more on a South Africa Bike Tour.
