Guests prepare and then enjoy a sensational meal made from local fare, including a mixture of flavours from African, traditional Afrikaans and Cape Malay cuisines. The day starts with preparing 6-8 authentic South African recipes, comprising starters, main meals cooked on an open fire and ends with a selection of South African desserts.

Guests can either participate in creating the dishes or can merely sit and watch as the chef prepares the various meals.

Customer Reviews

I have a lot of experience with cooking courses in Germany and also in Paris. This cooking course was it the same level. I have learnt a lot and I felt very welcomed. I can recommend this course. - Axel Heinen

We had such a wonderful time on the South African cooking safari. The chef was incredibly knowledgeable and the hands on learning style was perfect. The meal was one of the best we had while in South Africa and the fact that we got to take the recipes home was an added bonus. Would recommend this to absolutely everyone! - Kiri Staples

it was a fun experience. Even my wife liked it and she is not a big fan of cooking. Everything was good explained and we did hands on, very often you only watch the Chef preparing at other cooking classes. We got the recipes by mail and we try to cook the lekker food at again. I believe when we are back in Cape Town we take another class. best regards Dieter and Stephanie - Dieter Woelfle
