Overview

    What to Expect
    After collecting you from your hotel or residence in Johannesburg, your guide will give you a quick pre-departure tour briefing before departing to the Lesedi Cultural Village only a few kilometers outside of Johannesburg.

    Visit five traditional villages including Xhosa, Zulu, Pedi, Basotho and Ndebele. Listen to the traditional music being played and the fascinating stories told by the people of Lesedi. Enjoy a local South African tribal get-together and experience some traditional dancing.

    After the traditional dance, we head to the Nyama Choma restaurant. Nyama Choma stands for Great African Feast. And that’s exactly what you will experience! There is an extensive choice of African dishes, including crocodile and ostrich. The restaurant is divided into three different theme areas: North Africa, East Africa and South Africa.

    You will have a lot to talk about after a cultural fun day in Lesedi!

    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!

    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.

    Went as a couple. Was interesting to learn a bit about some of the tribes, but wasn’t amazing. Is about an hour from Joburg, so by the time you get driven there + back and then buy tickets it’s a good $80-90 per person which is too steep for what it is. The lunch food included
