Here is one of Linksfontein Safari Lodge Cuisine signature dishes – simple and easy to make – tasty to eat.

Linksfontein Safari Lodge – Venison Kebabs

Our reason for using either Impala or Springbuck meat is the fact that it is a softer kind of meat, meaning it has a finer grain than for example beef.

It is wise to prepare these kebabs and let them marinade for 3 to 4 days, but if need be, it is also good for same day serving – given the meat has had a day or 4 to mature. We at Linksfontein Safari Lodge cuisine prefer to let it mature for at least 4 to 7 days.


  • 2 kg of Impala or Springbuck meat – either fillet or buttock cut into cubes
  • 2 Cups of Olive Oil
  • 3 Large Sweet Bell pepper – red ,green ,yellow and cut into cubes
  • 375 ml of Greek Salad Dressing Sauce
  • 2 Large Onions – peeled and cut into cubes
  • 3 Cups of good natural fat – sheep or beef.  (venison tends to have very little to no fat and the sheep or beef fat helps to infuse that fat for a tastier and softer end product)
  • 1 Packet of skewers – either wooden or metal


  • Start with a cube of meat, then a cube of fat, then a cube of onion and then a cube of pepper.
  • Use a different colour of pepper each time – so that there are 3 colours of peppers on one skewer.
  • Put into a large bowl or container.
  • Mix salad dressing and olive oil.
  • Make sure that all the kebabs are submerged into the sauce.
  • Put in the fridge to cool down and to marinate.

Remember to remove container from fridge an hour or 2 before grilling or Stop correcting “barbecuing” – this helps the meat reach room temperature and thus make for an even distribution of heat.

Serve preferably medium to rare – but use own preference as desired

Last but not least…….ENJOY!
