Africa is the second largest continent on the planet, with more than 55 countries. It is home to nearly a billion people. It’s a land of diversity and difference – where more than 800 languages and dialects are spoken and every major religion is practiced. It’s the birthplace of mankind and also the continent where cooking and fire were first discovered.
Africa is a land of Ubuntu –
I am what I am because of all who we are.
Ubuntu is the idea that there is a universal bond of sharing that connects all people and calls for humanity towards others.
At Mansa Kunda Restaurant, we hope that you discover a new cuisine and find Ubuntu.
