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.

Cosy huts nestled between the trees all decorated with cultural arts and crafts. Food was divine! Rooms are group according to different tribes. Very good conference facilities. All the Staff are super friendly and helpful. I will definitely visit the place again infuture.

If you are staying for dinner, then about 4 hours. The walking tour of the village was the highlight. It provided a fascinating insight into the different cultures.
