Why biltong is the perfect food for camping


Biltong, a form of meat preservation that dates back to ancient times, originated out of a need for survival – to provide sustenance for travellers during the long winter months when food was scarce. For this reason, among others, it is the perfect snack to bring along when going camping.

Why biltong is the perfect food for camping

Biltong doesn’t need to be refrigerated  

Choosing what foods to bring along when camping all boils down to the type of camping you will be doing. For many who choose to tent, electricity is not an option and so campers are left to find foods that can be preserved in a small cooler and cooked over a fire, or else don’t need to be cooled and cooked at all. Biltong falls into the latter category. It can be stored in your bag for long periods and eaten whenever needed.

Biltong is nutritious and comes in many varieties

Biltong is packed with protein and Omega-3s, which means it will add some high nutritional value to your camping trip. It’s not always easy to make the healthiest decisions when on the road and with limited resources, but biltong is a great solution as it provides nutrition without the preparation.

Biltong is also perfect for camping trips because it is so diverse. It can be eaten on its own as a nice camp snack, or it can be put on a sandwich or added to another dish to make a meal. Before you leave for your trip, you can prepare your biltong in a variety of different ways that will cater to your food needs. Whether chopped, shredded or in stick form, biltong is the perfect camping companion.
