What people are saying about Johannesburg

Looking for a REAL African meal experience that leaves both your stomach and your heart full? Then look no further than a pan-African cooking experience with Nonhlanhla “Noni” Godole. From all home grown and acquired fresh ingredients from around the continent we learned about the spices & the history of our meal. We cooked outside over wood fires in both a concrete oven and over a long grill with many pots going at once. From the welcome native drink to the wonderful dessert we were treated with such warmth and laughter that we felt a comfort and friendship. I highly recommend this activity and suggest that you request Noni as your instructor and guide in order to gain an amazing authentic dining experience.

The experience was wonderful. Safe and fun. My guide was friendly and tentative. He made sure I had everything I needed and explained the trip well.

A nice way to admire the animals of Africa up close. The guide explained everything professionally and even extended the tour by half an hour.

My favorite tour guide of the trip! The lion park was AMAZING!!

Short tour with a lot of explanation about the animals
