Food

What better way to discover a destination without trying the food. Countries in the Northern, Southern, Western and Eastern part of Africa all have their main traditional culinary, which may be similar despite the diversity.

The traditional food is usually spicy, prepared differently and some are preferably eaten with bare wash hands. So much goes into preparing the Africa food, its one of the best moment to spend time with family. I am sure to walk you around these dishes.
