Your cooking lesson takes place in a fully equipped, typical African kitchen. Under the guidance of your chef, you will learn how to prepare a four-course African meal, including three different types of homemade seafood. You will also learn how to match each dish with suitable wines, selected from the best local varieties. Of course, no Zanzibar cooking experience would be complete without sampling your creations – when you have finished in the kitchen, you’ll gather round the table with your fellow aspiring chefs, sip some wine and taste the delicious African meal you have prepared.

On the way back to your hotel in Zanzibar, you’ll be taken to the nearby village of Mangapwani, where local peoples do some local activities like fishing, cultivating, and lime stone making. Go to Slave Chambers and learn about historical slave routes, caravans, and important founders of slave trade.
