Our meat is naturally wholesome – packed with healthy proteins rather than supplements, hormones and antibiotics. And it is true to its origin in the Kalahari, where free-roaming animals have access to an assortment of nutrients, rotationally grazing on diverse pastures while living to an older age. The result: a more flavoursome meat, filled with nature’s energy.

BENEFITS OF DRY-AGEING
Wild Kalahari is one of only a handful of artisan butcheries in South Africa who are dry-ageing free-range, grass-fed meat.
The taste of ethically produced meat is much more flavoursome than meat from mass-production feedlots, because free-roaming animals feed on a variety of natural occurring pastures.
Dry-ageing enhances this flavour even more, making the meat supremely tender and delicious, giving it a distinct nutty, smokey flavour.
