Directions to Lesedi African Lodge and Cultural village
Established in 1993, Lesedi Cultural Village was created to showcase an authentic representation of the cultural life of African tribes. Immerse yourself in this two day adventure as you enter the bright and colourful world of the people of Africa. From the moment of your arrival you are greeted with an escort of traditional singers and dancers and given a drink to refresh yourself. You are then swept away to be shown your room which is part of one of five different tribes, each with a unique culture. The village has 38 traditionally designed rooms, each beautifully bright and individual room is located inside a hand woven bee hive hut with a grass roof. The rooms are very comfortable, well looked after and cleaned thoroughly every day.
Your guide will then take you for a tour around the village, where the native people live, to show you the deeply mystical yet simple lives of the African tribe people. A multimedia presentation allows you to retrace the history of these five tribes, from the Zulu, Basotho, Pedi, Ndebele and Xhosa and the differences between them. As the sun sets over this beautiful land the tribe gather back to the Boma and light a fire around which they sing traditional songs, dance and tell stories of their ancestors. Feel free to join in with the dancing, they love audience participation. If you get hungry the Pan American Buffet is a haven for foodies with a unique selection of meats including ostrich, crocodile and viper as well as vegetarian dishes.
Experience the old and the new Africa in this natural village. Supported by a knowledgeable guide a visit to the Lesedi Cultural Village will change the way you think about Africa and provide a magical experience unlike any other.
