Not sure why there is such an uproar with the worms. :hmz: I mean we swallow and eat a lot more flies and spiders when we sleep. Especially if we sleep with our mouths open. :whistle: Who has never woken up with a taste in their mouth they can't explain? :huh:

@MG......Actually I haven't had any :D

But that's why I just HAVE TO GO BACK :dance:

@Micetta Mopani worms would have to be an acquired taste. They are the caterpillars of the Emperor Moth. They live o the leaves of the mopane tree.

The worms are hand picked or shaken off the trees. The local collector’s squeeze the Caterpillars to remove their bright green ‘guts’ and then they are cooked in a cauldron of salty water until the water has evaporated, they are then dried in the Hot African Sun. Once dried, they can be stored for many months. Their protein content is three times that of beef, weight for weight, and they are traditionally cooked in a stew containing tomatoes and onions.

The biggest worms have the best flavour as they contain more fat ; the texture is similar to tofu or soya meat and they taste a little like dried fish, but they seem to soak up the flavour of whatever they are cooked with. Mopane’s can also be eated as they are as a snack like, ‘jerky’.


Yes I was pulling your leg .....but as they say one mans food is anothers poison. I can't stand vegemite (marmite). :tongue:

What a great report! You guys have done a wonderful job of expressing what the Kruger Park experience is like...

Please tell me there are more installments :pray:

I hope there's at least 1 BIG Impala herd photo! :wink:
