Happy Clients Say
The details at the dinner table, from cutlery to glassware were reflecting the breeze of Africa. In between of the courses, I have also experienced the drumming adventure and both of the group members gave us great time and make the night memorable.

Very impressive and enjoyable West Africa themed event. A lot of thought and attention to detail went into the ambience and cuisine. The entertainment (African Djembe session) was hugely entertaining and immersive. Last but not least, the hospitality was exceptional.
