I loved this homely cooking experience. We got to know about the different products of Namibia and finally cooked some of the local delicacies. Valentina was an just amazing cook and answered any question. Everyone made us feel welcome in their home and we enjoyed our meals together while learning about life nowadays in Namibia. Anyone who wants to experience a real and simultaneously traditional experience should definitely book a tour with Lubowski and Sacky.
