Depart your hotel and travel to the Lesedi Cultural Village – a multi-cultural village set amongst the pristine bushveld and rocky hills less than an hour’s drive north of Johannesburg.
Upon arrival at Lesedi, you’re welcomed to the Ndebele village before settling down to a fascinating presentation on the history of South Africa’s rainbow nation. You’re then taken on a guided tour of each of the cultural villages, where you can learn all about the various rituals and folklore of different South African cultures – the Zulus with their fighting sticks and cosy beehive huts, the Xhosa with their perfectly thatched ‘rondavels’ and distinctive white blankets, the rhythmic drums and whistles of the Pedi tribe, the conical straw hats and thick, coloured blankets of the Basotho and the colourful homes of the Ndebele.
Traditional songs and dances round off the day’s activities, followed by a buffet dinner of traditional fare fit for a king, hosted in the 200-seater Nyama Choma restaurant. Put your taste buds to the test by digging into some impala, ostrich or crocodile meat then gather around the open fire at the end of the evening to listen to tales of African mythology.
