We spent one night here and stayed in the Zulu accomodation. We were given a great tour of all five villages, followed by fantastic and fun dance display where all the locals were involved and really enthusiastic. We followed that up with a traditional African meal. The people here are great and go out of there way to help you. The accomodation is different but worthwhile. Value for money is the key here. Do yourself a favour and go and enjoy the experience. The people here are just lovely.
Beautiful tour within a village. Tribal traditions, lifestyles, marriages, etc. We enjoyed African dancing, shopped, and ended our visit with a FABULOUS lunch.
The village was a real life interactive experience with ethnic indigenous groups of South Africa. It was an informative break down of the life and ways of this culturally rich settlement. The history preserved and passed down through generations is quite impressive and overwhelming all in one emotional breath. This was an experience I will remember forever!!
We had just half a day in Johannesburg before our flight back to Europe and we're happy we booked a trip with Moafrika. Tsholo was very kind and knowledgeable and he freely shared his knowledge with us. Lesedi village is lovely and worth visiting.
We had a great time with Tsholo today! He told us about the history of South Africa, about different tribes and about how he found himself in Johannesburg. Ask for him if you book with MoAfrika!
