Eland meat from Dqae Qare San Lodge.

The most crucial part of the San diet has always been meat. Meat was and is treated as the most important part of the meal. The San know that their food may not always include meat because they hunt during different seasons of the year.

Meat is an integral part of their survival. It is not only for their sustenance but for their culture. Meat brings joy to the people and is able to sustain them for a longer duration before the next hunt expedition. After a successful hunt, meat is equally distributed to all and shared among the families within the camp.
