Swahili Cooking Lessons

A fun, eye-opening and mouth-watering Swahili cooking lesson is a unique way to get an authentic taste of the real Tanzania – and take it home with you! Spend half a day in the company of local women in a Tanzanian kitchen, learning how to prepare and cook traditional Swahili dishes from Zanzibar and the mainland.

Preparing Your First Tanzanian Food & Tasting it!

Your mama (your chef) will take you and your guide to a local market to source all the ingredients and produce that you’ll need. This is an experience in itself, with the vibrant colors, smells and sounds of the market mingling with the shouts of local traders and the sharing of jokes and gossip! You will then be trained in how to prepare food such as ugali, wali, chapati, mboga, tuwi, mchuzi, visheti – and more – and will sample your dishes for lunch! We work with local women who speak Swahili and a little English (your guide will be able to translate when necessary, but you might even pick up one or two Swahili words while you’re at it!).

Activity's Location



What is the best month to go on an African safari?
The classic time to visit Tanzania is during the main dry season, from June to October, when good weather conditions can be expected across the country and wildlife viewing should be spectacular.

Another major highlight is the migration calving season in Serengeti (December – March), which coincides with good trekking conditions on Kilimanjaro and fair weather down on the coast, too.
Where does the tour start and end?
This private safari experience starts in Kenya at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO) and ends in Tanzania at the Kilimanjaro International Airport.

Our private safari guide and vehicle will meet and greet you upon arrival, and they will transfer you back to the airport on your last day of your safari experience with us.
Do you arrange airport transfers?
Airport transfers are included in the price of this private safari experience. In this case our private safari guide/representative and vehicle will be at the airport to meet & greet you upon arrival. When you arrive at the airport, please proceed to the arrival areas and look for a sign with your last name written on it.
How much does African safari cost?
Your total cost will vary depending on seasonality, size of group and specific travel arrangements, but this is a good guideline for an all-inclusive safari (everything except international flights):

$499 USD per person per day for 3-star accommodation
$699 USD pp per day for 4-star
$999+ USD pp per day for 5-star

It’s worth noting that, depending on your itinerary, your lodge cost will make up about 75–85% of your total safari trip cost. Our rates are per person sharing unless stated otherwise. Single supplements may apply. Accommodation are subject to availability.
