If you are visiting Johannesburg, and you feel like a very unique African experience, then you should put Lesedi Cultural Village in your "to do" list.
As a South African living in the UK I went to SA with some of my UK friends, and this was recommended to us and I was not sure of it at first, but after visiting it I just realised what a fantastic experience it really is.
Lesedi is located about an hours drive outside Johannesburg and set in the gorgeous bushveld in the hills.
Its very much of a themed event as you get placed with a tribe on arrival, and you will live amongst then in huts that resemble their homes. You will experience the vibrant and very colourful traditions of the Basotho, Ndebele, Pedi, Xhosa and Zulu. You are guided by a local tribesman and are told on what the traditions of the tribes are that are represented at Lesedi, learning very instersing facts.
Then after everyone has had their educational insight you will be treated to traditional dancing and singing, followed by a supper at the restaurant where you can sample the many different tastes on offer.
Stay for the night and enjoy this truly unforgettable experience, you will not regret it.
