Field Trip: Guided Tour and Talk at the Africa Center with a Pan-African Lunch

Saturday, 18 Sep 2021
10.45 am to 2.00 pm
The Royal Geographical Society is pleased to arrange a guided tour and talk at the Africa Center, with a traditional drumming session followed by an African culinary experience.

The Africa Center is a platform and creative hub that is dedicated to fostering value between African and non-African communities in Hong Kong.  The organisation works to increase awareness and helps the community to learn to love and appreciate themselves and their culture.  They also strive to connect people through a uniquely African platform; where people can connect, gain an African perspective to things, co-create and share value.

Lunch is offered buffet style including dishes from Ethiopia, Mozambique and Zimbabwe, coupled with a chance to try Matapa (cassava leaf stew), Galinha Assada (grilled chicken), fried plantain and many other regional specialties.
