Enjoy wifi, unlimited soft drinks, snacks and a complimentary pick up at the Pugu Secondary School Bus Stop. Once you arrive at Karakana for the cooking experience, you will be greeted with a welcome drink and cool cloth to refresh. 
You will then meet your host and be guided on the cultural significance of food and the traditional cooking techniques used in Tanzania. Next, you will prepare a local dish with your coordinator, savoring local spices and flavors.
 After the cooking and preparation, you will enjoy a taste testing of the meal prepared as well as a sampling of other traditional foods in Tanzania. A traditional locally carved spoon and recipe book will be given at the end of the experience.
After the class is finished, enjoy either a continental or Swahili meal and explore the curated selection of handicrafts from artisans across Tanzania. You are welcome to relax on the outside baraza (lounge area), or to enjoy a day bed or a drink at the tanga stone bar. Your experience will end with a drop off at the Pugu Secondary School Bus Stop, with a postcard connecting you to the community partners your experience supports.
