Food is life in Tanzania. But this isn’t just a food tour of the city. The day kicks off with a cooking class where we’ll be learning how to make mandazi (sweet doughnuts) and cook ugali (a staple food in Tanzania). Whilst you’re honing your new craft I’ll tell you all about the culinary specialities of Tanzania, and what the locals eat on pretty much a daily basis. Then it comes to eating!

Important Information

I can work on sunday at evenings I can guide you in anywhere in Tanzania if you let me know in advance

There are some certain customs to observe if you want to blend in and avoid offence. Did you show you should never smell your food here? And there is an art to eating ugali with only your right hand! After class we’ll head to the fresh produce market where I’ll introduce you to locally grown fruits and vegetables – challenge me to find you something you’ve never tasted before. I’ve never failed yet! Finally we’ll take a stop at my personal favourite places to grab some of the most iconic delicacies on offer. This is a truly immersive and interactive tour where you take away more than a full belly, but also the knowledge of customs and the skills of cooking Tanzanian chakula!

Tanzania nightclub

Dar es Salaam
4 hours

When one thinks of Tanzania, usually what comes to mind is the lush green plains and safari adventures to explore the wide range of exotic wild animals that roam around freely. However, that is not all there is to Tanzania and there is a lot more to explore, such as the very happening nightlife scene of the Tanzanian cities, such as Dar es Salaam.
