Hartbeespoort Dam African Lodge and Cultural village
A warm, traditional welcome awaits as your escort takes you to "their’ village. Accommodation is unique as you stay in comfortable, traditionally styled rooms, and once settled, you’re introduced to the many colourful and fascinating aspects of the cultures of the people of Lesedi. New additions to the village and African Lodge are the luxury Nguni rooms which include richly decorated double suites. These carry the same vibrant colours and energy as the other guestrooms in the village and are also unique to the Zulu tribe they represent, adding to the existing accommodation options. Start your journey at the Ndebele village with an introduction to the cultural experience preceded by a multi-media presentation on the history and origins of South Africa’s rainbow nation. Then, enjoy a guided tour of the other four ethnic homesteads – Zulu, Basotho, Xhosa and Pedi. As the sun sets over the African bush, visit the Boma for a very interactive affair of traditional singing and dancing, which depict stories dating back to the days of their ancestors. Dine in the Nyama Choma Restaurant, featuring ethnic dishes, a fusion of Pan African cuisine all complemented by warm, traditional service. After a good night’s sleep awaken to the sounds of traditional maskande guitar or squash-box, and enjoy a full English breakfast which is served in the restaurant. Lesedi and its cultural experience of old and new Africa was co-founded by African explorer, Kingsley Holgate, who is renowned for his vast knowledge and passion for keeping the traditional African culture alive. He has ensured that every attraction to be found at Lesedi is not only fascinating, but enriching. Discover the spirit of "Ubuntu” at this unique cultural venue where the music, song and warmth of Africa’s hospitality awaits.
