African Culture Experience May 02, 2011
Lesedi Cultural Village is 40min drive from Johannesburg and Pretoria. Here you will experience 5 of the South African Cultures in one night. They offer different options and packages to suit your needs.

We decided to take the Boma experience which started at 16:30. At arrival we were welcomed by the chief and the Lesedi Marimba Band. We did the booking via the phone and had to pay on arrival, we also had enough time to browse the Ndebele village with curio shops and have a drink before the tour started.

We watched a short informative video before we visited the 5 different villages of the Basotho, Xhosa, Ndebele, Pedi and Zulu people. Our guide Thankiso were enthusiastic and made sure everyone had a good time. After visiting the villages we were invited to the Giant Ingoma, which means African Cultural Extravaganza. The music and dances were amazing, the guests all joined in for the last dance before we were escorted to the restaurant for a traditional African meal.

I highly recommend this day trip if you would like to experience a small part of the South African Culture. It costs about $50 for the tour and dinner included.
