Cookery Course & Activity

Potjiekos, which roughly translates as “small pot food”, is a traditional Dutch meal brought to Southern Africa in the 17th century. Now a staple in southern African cuisine, the meal is cooked in a traditional 3-legged iron pot or potjie. Enjoy being guided through the preparation process by professional chefs in picturesque surroundings on the banks of the Zambezi River.

Once cooking is underway your Potjie will simmer away while you embark on an activity of your choice, the options include:
  • A guided 4WD safari in the Zambezi National Park.

  • A guided canoeing trip on the Zambezi River.

  • Or drifting peacefully down the river on a raft with a guide to steer you along
Once your activity is over you’ll head back to the riverbank where you prepared your potjiekos to enjoy a 3-course meal with your self-made ‘pot’ as the main course.
