Wonderful to learn about our own cultures all in one place. The tour and show was incredibly informative. Entrance fees for locals is expensive though. Lovely curios and gift stalls outside.

I would recommend starting with Lesedi Village to get a full understanding of the make-up of South Africa. Our guide was very knowledgeable and I got a good understanding of what tribes make up South Africa, their customs, dance and location.
