Food & Dining in Namibia

Namibian restaurants compare satisfactorily with those of other African countries, but a true and unique Namibian culinary identity has yet to emerge. The ubiquitous pizza and burger aside, most Namibian menus tend to combine traditional German influences with South African fare. You will find local and international cuisine in the many diverse restaurants and cafes in the capital, Windhoek.

Game dishes are common features of Namibian menus, with gemsbok, springbok and kudu meat being the most popular choices. You might come also across zebra or ostrich dishes, which are rarer. Processed meats and sausages are also popular, often served in the German traditional style at cold buffets. Germans seeking brötchen and landjäger shouldn't have to look too far.

Fish are also frequent additions to a menu, especially around Lüderitz, Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. Line-fish such as steenbras and kabeljou, as well as oysters, comprise most restaurants' seafood sections.

Outside of the restaurant you will find the traditional South African braai (barbecue) has translated itself verbatim into Namibian social culture, along with its traditional accompaniment: beer, the national drink of this hot and dry country.
