“Wow! What a show!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

This is by far the most professional and fun cultural village I've ever experienced. The show they put on was exceptional. Singers and dancers were fantastic. Beautiful young people offering a superb performance. Food delicious too... Thank you to all involved at ROR. You are doing a wonderful thing!

“Fun, realistic, immersive; thank you!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

As a trip of degree students looking to have a fully immersive experience I am always wary of these shows. BUT...the setting is beautiful. There was a warm and friendly welcome. The show was energetic, fun, educational and memorable. We were even invited to 'bust a few moves' at the end which students loved (so did staff secretly!) The explanation of village life afterwards and the meal was a great touch. The village is not sold as where the people actually live but as a genuine mock-up and I really appreciated this. After the food we inadvertently found ourselves with various drums and Niko, one of the performers, tutored a load of our students in drumming and rhythm keeping. Again, a storming success and no one wanted to leave! Thanks for a fab day.

“Energetic & Enthusiastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 January 2014

This is undoubtedly the best cultural performance I have seen in South Africa. Authentic, factual and very entertaining! Besides getting insights into the Shangaan culture and their traditional village life, you are whisked through the history of South Africa in the most amazing display of song and dance. A real performance!! Don't skip out on the meal afterwards, you'll love it.

“Great Show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2014

I popped in to see the Roots of Rhythm Limpopo Pathway show yesterday. Wow! What an experience! It made me so proud to be South African- it is truthful, insightful and filled to the brim with African Spirit. I would advise anyone interested in South Africa to see this glorious show...
