Are you a local or an international tourist looking to enjoy some authentic, rich African culture? If you want to see how traditional African cultures have lived for decades, then a guided tour of the Lesedi Cultural Village with Pogiso’s Tours’ shuttle service is the perfect outing for you and your family. As a premier provider of airport shuttle services, as well as events transfer services, also offering day tours and coach hire throughout Johannesburg, Pretoria, and Soweto, we offer two three-hour guided tours of the Lesedi Cultural Village that depart at 9 am and at 12 pm.
A Multi-Cultural African Ambiance You Will Not Find Elsewhere
Situated within the Cradle of Humankind in Gauteng, less than an hour’s drive north of Johannesburg, is the Lesedi Cultural Village. Set amongst rocky hills and wild bushveld, Lesedi, which is seSotho for “light”, features five traditional homesteads, each representing a South African culture: Zulu beehive huts, thatched Xhosa rondavels, colourful Ndebele homes, and Pedi and Basotho dwellings.
A multicultural village, Lesedi Cultural Village offers a thrilling attraction for those willing to learn about the traditions and cultures of the African people, as well as learn about the different cross-cultural comparisons of their customs. What is so wonderful about this tour is that you are not visiting a tribal village where actors are dressed in tribal skins, pretending to live in mud huts and eat traditional African foods; you are visiting real African tribes where the people of Lesedi live the way their ancestors have lived for hundreds of years.
What to Expect
On arrival, the Lesedi dancers will take you to the heart of Africa through their traditional African dancing. You will then be given a tour of the Ndebele village and craft market. Afterwards, we will take you to the Ma Thabeleng’s Shebeen, where you can enjoy some traditional “mamba juice”, and then you will get to sample some authentic dishes from around the African continent at the Nyama Choma.
