This place was cool. It was a bit touristy but the food was tasty and the dance performance was great. They were really interactive and they got us dancing. We also got our faces painted so that was a nice added addition.

A beutiful journey across the African countries, knowing their culture by their food! And a beautiful danicing-and-singing African performance during the dinner - a truly unforgetable experience!

A warm and welcoming atmosphere and recommended dinner experience in the city center of Cape Town. If you are looking for an African Experience, this one is filled with a myriad of different folk song, dance and dress. Highly entertaining as you have... More
