Wildly Exploring Wildly Eating

Namibia’s first game meat food festival is happening this week. Elzanne Erasmus, one of the organisers of the event, joined us in studio to explain why the sustainable use of our natural resources ensures that our most iconic species are preserved. Elzanne explains here, that a healthy appetite for game meat is in keeping with good conservation practise as these species are less harmful to our environment than many other farm species such as cattle.

The Eat Wild Festival is Namibia’s first game meat food festival and will take place from 6 to 11 November 2017. Restaurants around Windhoek will be serving especially prepared venison meat items throughout the week. To close off the week, an evening food market, the Eat Wild Market, will be taking over the Windhoek City Market on the 10th of November 2017.

With sustainable farming and hunting practises, the aim of the week is to introduce Namibians to the fun of wild eating and encourage support for our home grown and iconic venison products.
