Anywhere to eat game meat in Kenya?

I understand Carnivore no longer serves game meat.. is that a Kenya-wide change or is there somewhere that I could try zebra, or giraffe, or gazelle, or something I'd never get to try somewhere else?

Thanks!

Game meat is now no longer available in Kenya. You can eat farmed ostrich in quite a few restaurants and the odd place here and there serves crocodile.

Game meat was never what is was cracked-up to be. I didn't find giraffe was too bad, nor camel, but I found zebra, eland and the likes very tough.

You're not missing anything, stick with a nice fillet steak!

Yuk, nyama choma and tear-gas! You must have the constitution of an ox. Nice to find someone who likes it though!

My preference is to see the game alive and kicking on the plains rather than on my plate!

Totally agree Tembofan I also go to Kenya to see live animals.

I personally can't understand why people would want to eat such beautiful creatures, mind you I'm vegetarian.

Just as clarification, I wouldn't want to support the slaughter of endangered animals but as a meat-eater I was looking to experience something I've never tried before if it was a (legal) opportunity... much like when a friend went to northern Canada and tried Moose and Bear. Stuff I can't get in Toronto, Canada!

In any case thanks for the advice and the continued source of information!

Best,

Steve
