Half Day Lesedi Cultural Village
On this half day tour, you will be transported from your hotel in Jo'burg or Pretoria to the Lesedi Cultural Village a mere 45 minutes from the city. Set amid rocky hills and bushveld on the way to Sun City, Lesedi Cultural Village offers visitors a chance to encounter people of Zulu, Xhosa, Pedi, Ndebele and Basotho origin.
Listen to the traditional music being played and the fascinating stories told by the people of Lesedi. Enjoy a local South African tribal get-together and experience some traditional dancing.
After the traditional dance we head to the Nyama Choma restaurant (optional). Nyama Choma stands for Great African Feast. And that’s exactly what you will experience! There is an extensive choice of African dishes, including crocodile and ostrich.
When South African icon Archbishop Desmond Tutu first christened South Africa the “Rainbow Nation” he was referring particularly to its peoples and their varying cultures. From Zulu people to those of Xhosa origin, to the Afrikaners, the English and the Coloured people of the Cape, South Africa has a rich diversity of people and cultures and 11 official languages. Lesedi Cultural Village is one of the best tourist attractions in South Africa, allowing visitors to really explore the glorious diversity of the people of this land.
There’s a craft market for last-minute curios and handmade local arts and crafts.
