we stayed in one of the deluxe rooms which was an experience in itself. An enormous room with comfortable beds and a large fully equipped bathroom and outside shower which would be great in the summer. We opted for the full cultural show including a video, walk through the various villages and getting an understanding of their cultures followed by dinner and traditional dances. The staff were friendly and attentive and there was some shopping opportunities as well. I encourage all to make time to visit this gem

An excellent 2 hour introduction to the main tribes in South Africa, with a very articulate host & hostess who accompany us on a walk through different village types - including nuggets of knowledge on their language, food, cooking and home styles. Very informative, and explained nicely. The tribal dance show at the end could last from 30-40 min, and we found it somewhat loud and draggy though some parts were impressive (a shorter performance could be considered by the operators). Toilets on site are clean, there's a small snack food store, and curio outlets on site. Overall, a very good way to start a tour of South Africa.

We visited the village in the morning and stayed for lunch. Learning about five tribes of the area was fascinating. Each tribe has a small "village" set up to show their architecture and some of their traditions. This visit was very enjoyable and we were pleasantly surprised with the warm, friendly treatment we had. We felt a true happiness and pride of the staff involved. The energetic singing and dancing program was a highlight for us. The lunch was delicious with tribal foods and European style foods. Everyone can find something to delight their senses.

I enjoyed my afternoon at the cultural village. I found the staff to be very friendly. I gained some valuable information about the major tribes of South Africa: their habitats, foods, and clothing. The buffet lunch was very good, and there was a chance to do some shopping. There ae a couple of shops with marked prices for those who don't like to bargain. Good deal. You can even spend the night here (I didn't). The village is less than an hour's drive from the Johannesburg airport.

Super informative
Good shopping opportunity
The cultural tour is a must see, takes about 2,5 hours and include cultural dances. Very interactive, with drinking of beer, eating of Mopani worms.. Excellent guides, energetic and well educated.
The buffet is great, with a variety of crocodile, antelope, ostrich meat etc.
Book in advance

The accommodation is very authentic. Only place in South Africa, where you can stay over in authentic African huts
