Taste Of Africa Food Experience
With this mixture of people comes a great cultural infusion from Zulu traditional meals to
Indian curry meals and an infusion of both influences like the very famous chakalaka salad
which can be used as exhibit A of how well these 2 cultures complement each other.
On this tour we get to taste a bunny chow, move around the city in the very famous Durban
minibusses to get the full local experience, we visit the market and finish up with some
street food and a drumming experience which is optional for people who want to immerse
themselves in the Zulu culture.

History of Durban
Durban is the 3rd biggest city in South Africa with a good mix of the Zulu tribe as well as
having the biggest population of Indians outside of India.
Take a historical guided walk down Rockey Street in Yeoville – a steaming broth that remains part of Johannesburg’s inner-city heartbeat.
Yeoville’s “United States of Africa” will offer you an experience that will challenge your perceptions and delight your taste buds. We want to give you a blank canvas and brush so that you can paint a new picture of Johannesburg. You'll see that you don’t need to travel thousands of kilometres around the African continent to get a taste of Africa.
What type of cuisine?
Our local guide will be leading you to places like Malalahitoka for traditional Ghanaian Wat, Kifto, Injera, Pondu and Kwanga. Mama Osu will be our Nigerian stop for Akara and Killshi...just to name a few.
Things to know before booking:
- Ubers don't come to Yeoville due to the war between Uber and Taxi drivers.
NB) Please arrange transport with your Hotel or us
- The Experience is vegetarian-friendly not Vegan Friendly.
- We visit 4 different Restaurants all within walking distance from one another.
- The experience is designed for Foodies :)
NB) Please skip Lunch because African portions are BIG
Because of the proximity of the restaurants, we will be walking to all the locations.
"Absolute amazing perspective-changing tour of Johannesburg. As regular traveller to East Africa, Joburg seemed like many other large African cities. I was warned that you have to watch out in certain areas and could be easily robbed. A perspective was built around a criminal intensive city. When I did the tour, this perspective was radically changed and I came to deeply appreciate Joburg... a much deeper insight in Africa than on any other tour I have done in my many travels."
