More Information

DESCRIPTION
This is an off-the-beaten-path food tour showcasing hidden African food gems— a window that allows you to explore our diverse Mother City from a unique perspective. This tour is hosted by immigrants (European and African) in South Africa and is all about celebrating diversity in Cape Town.

In roughly 2 to 3 hours, we showcase how food has the power to hold communities together as we guide you through Cape Town's unexplored and mysterious pan-African kitchens and restaurants. Let us take you on an adventurous culinary journey all the way from South Africa up to Mali, sho't left to Ethiopia and the Horn of Africa, share insights about the incredibly diverse and complex traditions of Somali food culture and the fragrant spices used in African countries that border the Red Sea.
The tour includes about 5 stops in which we get to taste the best authentic African dishes and homemade beverages Cape Town has to offer. We visit and celebrate African entrepreneurs and their achievements who have managed to create unique spaces of unity despite harsh conditions in a rapidly gentrifying and sometimes uninviting and even xenophobic environment.

Share fresh Injera, steaming soft pap, floral cafe touba, and much more, while listening to real-life stories of true community heroes and a live performance by Xhosa musician Khofhi The King.

This experience is hosted by Dennis and/or Khoffi and you will be tasting authentic African cuisine. Please come with an open mind and be prepared for eating with your hands in a social setting. 

WHAT'S INCLUDED

Food - Lunch - We'll eat authentic and freshly prepared African food. All dishes are a variety of East, West, and South African dishes and vary depending on availability and season.
Drinks - Soft Drinks - There'll be a cold non-alcoholic beverage included as well as a hot beverage.

I did almost all of the experiences here in Cape Town and this was by far one of my favorite.

I did almost all of the experiences here in Cape Town and this was by far one of my favorite. Why? If you want to actually get a good view into the African culture - this is how. Not only was the food SO GOOD, each restaurant is local favs and Khofhi (the guide) shares a little bit of information for each type of food you try. He also takes you to some cool spots along the trip that you wouldn't know to check out on your own and surprises you at the end with one of his many talents. Khofhi is a creative with many talents (music, djing, music production) so he's tapped into the area. It's a whole vibe the whole way through. You'll also have good local spots to return to so don't sleep on this one!

Just book it!

This was one of the highlights of our trip to Cape Town and is without a doubt a must do! It is an incredibly rich experience, learning about different food and cultures in Africa and the guides, restaurant owners and food are all amazing. Some of the best food I have had this entire month! If you are only booking 1 experience this month, make it this one!

Best Cape Town Experience!

As someone that booked literally every experience on the marketplace in CT (don't tempt me with a good time!), I can confidently say that this one was top tier. The food is amazing, the tour guide, chefs and restaurant owners you encounter are lovely, and the jam session in the park with Khofhi at the end is the cherry on top. Book it - you won't regret it!
