Half Day Lesedi Cultural Village TourJohannesburg
BRIEF TOUR DESCRIPTION AND INFORMATION
We journey to the Lesedi Cultural Village for reflection on the 11 official tribes of South Africa. Lesedi Cultural Village is a multi-cultural village set amongst the pristine bushveld and rocky hills less than an hour’s drive north of Johannesburg. Situated at Lesedi African Lodge are five traditional homesteads – the Zulus with their fighting sticks and cosy beehive huts, the Xhosa with their perfectly thatched rondawels and distinctive white blankets, the rhythmic drums and whistles of the Pedi tribe, the conical straw hats and thick, coloured blankets of the Basotho and the colourful homes of the Ndebele.
Families peacefully living their traditional lives inhabit each homestead at Lesedi. Additional huts for each village have been constructed in each homestead offering the unique opportunity of staying with a traditional rural African family – however, all home comforts have been catered for including cosy beds and beautiful en suite bathrooms with showers.
Lesedi is a Sotho word that means, “LIGHT”. It was made famous by the great leader and founder of the Southern Sotho Nation, Moshoeshoe. During the terrible Mfecane wars, refugees from many nations joined him and were saved by him.
Lesedi African Lodge awaits those willing to participate in an adventure that reveals the mystical cultures and traditions of the people of Africa, steeped in tribal folklore and ancestral traditions. Our culture is the light of our nation – whoever walks here amongst our cultures at Lesedi can also see the light.
