With a tour leader in tow, you can expect to get the local low down on everything from the best eateries to the best budget street stalls. And, when you sample indigenous dishes you’ll also get a flavour of the culture, so broaden your appetite and dig into these four tasty locations:
Cape Town should definitely be on your culinary radar as it’s become “super foodie” central – its mix of wine farms, boutique dining and a new line of restaurants and coffee shops breaking the mould when it comes to mouthwatering cuisine. Try Bree Street (food blogging heaven) – “Raw & Roxy,” serving fantastic vegan and vegetarian food, and “Issi on Bree” ideal for a healthy light lunch – don’t forget to check out the cool book exchange and photo and art exhibitions.
For all the seafood you can eat, you can’t go wrong with a trip to Mozambique. As part of our day trip out to Magaruque Island, you will enjoy a beach picnic where you can feast on fresh fish baked on coals, chapati and fresh carrot and pineapple salad.
Sample the various street stalls at Zanzibar’s famous Forodhani Gardens Night Market, where fishermen bring back their fresh catch including everything from octopus to barracuda and shark.
From late on Thursday to Saturday night, the clubs in Westlands, Nairobi will be buzzing, so treat yourself to some mshikakis (kebabs) at a nearby street stall.
