Very unique accommodation. We stayed in the 4 sleeper rondawel and it was very pleasant. The unit offered a heater and electric blankets for the cold winter nights. The tea and coffee and the toiletries came in very handy. A stay close to nature

We enjoyed our stay very much at the Basotho Cultural Village! The village is located in the mountains with splendid views and abundance of wildlife! The rondawels are well equipped and very clean. The place is magic!

Shows the Basotho culture and living from pre European influence to modern times. Explains some of the rituals and way of living. Experience foodstuffs and drinks of the period. Great surroundings. Definitely worth a visit if staying at Golden Gate Park.

Visited this attraction during s break from work. Brilliant experience. The tour of the village was entertaining and informative. Only took about an hour to get round the venue but well worth the visit.
