Sorry don't believe in killing these on the verge of extinction animals, plus I don't go to Zambia.

they are not on the verge of extinction here. and all animals shot here in zambia have to be bought. you have to buy a licence and its definately not cheap. but i do understand not many people could imagine eating hippo like i could never imagine eating rabbit. but thank you for your comment.

Hunting a Hippo must be like trying to find me during football season, some place, same time, Sunday.....

Weird enough, Hippo actually tastes quite nice.

I had it a couple of months ago. I ate it as a stew, done the local way. Best way to describe it would be like beef, just a bit richer.

And yes, like the topic starte, I'm also in Zambia.

It's a game meat. You can't sell it without the proper papers.

Same applies to impala. I had it on the menu and within 2 days zawa (Zambian Wildlife Association) was on my doorstep to check if I had all the right permits (which obviously I had as I'm dead against poaching).

 

I can't really see anyone on the forum being desperate for good hippo recipes though, impala is a differnet matter as those recipes apply to venison etc as well.

I like to do an impala-red-wine stew )should that be called "impala bourguignon"?)

hhhmmmmmmmmmmmm i love impala with red wine! it goes so nicely together! also just a plain impala stew is brilliant and goes nicely with dumplings or the typical zambian way with nshima.
