My wife and I attended this show on our recent trip in South Africa. its incredible. We enjoyed so much. All music is performed by musicians and you can see them with their colorful costumes, etc. I can highly recommend it to visit it.

The African dance show usually on there is very popular with visitors. The restaurant, though convenient is clumsily run. The palce has a dilapidated air.
