What to Expect
Feel at home, relax, learn and share. Starting at 6pm/7pm at a private home in Gaborone any day of the week. As guests arrive there are few local clothes that they can wear. We really want you to feel like a local but as comfortable as possible hence the clothes are voluntary (Don’t worry it’s  easy wear small items that you can wear over clothes) A quick ice breaker so that everyone is comfortable and feeling at home. All the prepared meals will then be explained to you with a bit of history of where they originate from and local names. A bit of history and a few folktales will be share. There is no limit to how much to eat, YES you eat all you can. While you eat local music will be playing, a local person showcasing their expertise in any of our chosen things to learn while in Botswana.

You are guaranteed the best 3 hours of your local connection! There is a special gift for each guest at the end. You will indeed take a bit of Botswana with you back home:-)

The set up, the aura of the venue and the food was amazing. The food composition was explained in detail to us, we were taught how to pair the food. The story tellers and traditional dance brought everything together for me. I'm definitely taking my international friends there
