Memories from our previous guests

"The trip of a lifetime! The food! Oh, the food! Fresh, organic and prepared to perfection!
Excellent host and amazing company. Lerato thought of it all. So many different flavours teased my palate. Her team were amazing and catered to my every need. Thank you for the wonderful memories."
Diunde Smith, from Bermuda

"With careful attention and love on Africana Cookery Retreat, the variety of food prepared by Lerato and her team was scrumptious, and the accommodation was excellent, tucked in a secluded breathtaking location with awesome scenery. I highly recommend this cookery retreat to all. Go and explore the beauty that Africa has to offer."
Emily, from London
"Ghana, the food, the company all made for a great time. Everyone loved their gifts. They are asking about the food. They want me to cook some of your recipes. I loved that you chose such a beautiful and tranquil lodge. I loved the food! There wasn't anything I didn't like. The excursions gave me a good insight into the diversity of Ghana.”
Marilyn, from Bermuda

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, and drivers to local producers such as chocolate makers, shea butter producers, organic growers and all who we work with to provide you with 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.

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 our amazing team to create a most memorable experience for you.
For more about our retreat, please join the waiting list by writing to us. Let us know which of the retreats you will like to join and how many people in your party. We will get back to you as soon as possible with our detailed brochure. After we confirm availability, you can return here to book your place by paying in full or in instalments.
