FULL ITINERARY

 We meet at On Any Day Adventures home in Pretoria for a fresh brew of coffee and a brief of what to expect on the tasteful journey that awaits! We are on our bikes, with the road leading to the spicy Yeoville.

Venturing out into the countryside, your basket of adventure keeps getting fuller! Take a leisurely ride into Hennops Valley Magaliesberg, where some of the most unspoiled nature trails, soft game, plateaus, craft coffee, gin, beer tasting await.  We head for the hills and take a cable car ride up to the top of the Magaliesburg to enjoy spectacular views of Gauteng and North West provinces. There is also the unique opportunity to view Ural Russian motorcycles in the area – a treasure trove. 

First on our retro-platter, we learn about the evolution of Yeoville. The area was predominantly a non-permanent residential area for people arriving in Joburg for work. They would find their feet then move on to the northern suburbs permanently. This created a rapid residential transition of the area which has led to what we see today. Most migrants from the rest of Africa initially came seeking refuge from unrest in their home countries. Most have found that years later Yeoville is now home. The most prominent cultures are Central, East and West African. This is reflective of the crafts, wares and produce you will find at the Yeoville Market, eateries, local stores. 

We then ride into the climax of our Yeoville foodscape, where you will taste, touch some cocoyam, cassava, chargrilled fish, dried crayfish; the weird and wonderful cooking that showcases the “united colours” of culinary cultures of all things Africa. You will be left salivating and longing for more of this vibrant community!

There will be chows and grubs Zara Afrika Food – a salivating extravaganza that begins at Zara, a Ghanaian restaurant where a huge spread of everything on the menu is laid out in front of us. The chef explains the intricacies of Ghanaian cooking and how these wonderful dishes are prepared.

Ease into our next West African delight, just around the corner from Zara when we step into an unnamed Nigerian Bar. A selection of beans, goat stew, spaghetti bolognaise (Nigerian style) and succulent fish prepared by the Cameroonian cook, awaits and warms our merry hearts. 

We take a chilled ride to Kensington, to a restaurant called Abyssinia for a real taste of Ethiopia. We are welcomed with a shareworthy platter decked with a variety of meats and vegetables, all served on a sourdough flatbread that is just perfect amongst friends! 

We end our delectable ride with some aromatic sips of Ethiopian coffee; concluding our one-day love affair with West and East African food.

Fact – It is a “former gray area” for the apartheid government as both black and white people lived harmoniously, amidst laws that aimed to divide them.
