After breakfast depart to Prince Albert in the heart of the Karoo.

It is here that you will experience authentic traditional country cooking, uncovering the secrets of the South African outback as you embark on a cooking course.

There is such a wealth of traditional culinary heritage in the Great Karoo that has been passed down over centuries, some written down and some passed on through the oral tradition. Fascinating ingredients and combinations, most of which are virtually unknown or forgotten and age old cooking methods resuscitated for a culinary experience of a lifetime. Use local Prince Albert seasonal produce, including a range of fresh vegetables, fruit, herbs and of course the famous fragrant lamb to cook a colorful and delicious array of South African and Karoo dishes.

It is here that you will stay for two nights in the charming accommodations of African Relish, a combination of well-appointed and luxurious living space. With the sound of trickling water nearby in this beautiful land of olives, figs, stone fruit, and vines, the African Relish is a haven in which to unwind.
