Over the years, I have enjoyed bringing people together to share memorable experiences at my feasts, to share African recipes and stories far and wide, and also in my cookbook AFRICANA. Now we can travel, cook and feast together while making new memories across Africa.
~
‘Leaf through Africana and you’ll be sticking Post-it notes everywhere … There isn’t a dish I don’t want to cook.’ Diana Henry, the Saturday Telegraph
  ~ 
‘An Outstanding new book that will wake up your taste buds. Lerato is a genius with flavours.' Delicious magazine
  ~ 
'No plantains will go to waste with this book nearby'. BBC Good Food
~         
Heartwarming African hospitality awaits you in Ghana, the gold cost of Africa, where your holiday will commence in one of the best and most respected hotels in the city, before escaping the city, heading off the grid to our coastal eco-lodge nestled up and around the hills and overlooking the ocean.   
   
Our social & economic impact
Through our travels we will endeavour to give back to our host country, by empowering local people from our tour guides, cooks, drivers to local producers such as chocolate makers, shea butter producers, organic growers and all who we work with to provide you an enriching experience. A percentage of profits will be donated to a chosen charity after each trip. And time permitting, we will endeavour to visit an impactful social enterprise that is making a difference in the community. Our chosen social enterprise for Ghana is Cocoa 360. A pioneering organisation that seeks to create sustainable living conditions for children to thrive; by providing farm land for families to earn, healthcare and non-fee paying schools. 

Ready for your adventure?            

Now, all you have to do is book your place on our holiday, book your flights, prepare to travel and leave the rest to me and our amazing team to create a most memorable experience for you.
     
To join the waiting list, please send an email telling us more about you, and how many people will be joining your party. We will get back to you as soon as possible with availability.
