“Energetic & Enthusiastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 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 stars Reviewed January 5, 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...

“Roots of Rhythm Review”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

This was the best display of cultural dancing I have seen in South Africa. The dancing and costumes were excellent but what really set this performance apart was their use of narrative. This is well worth a visit!

“A truly authentic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I was so pleased to hear that the new Nyani Cultural Village opened today at Eco Academy. Just one more reason to visit if you're in the Hoedspruit area! We had such a great time on our recent visit. Roots of Rhythm is amazing! Such talented and spirited youth!
The traditional meal afterwards was superb. I highly recommend trying every dish and washing it all down with Savanna cider! It was a real highlight of our trip.

“The rhythm penetrates right into your soul”

This show will mesmerize you. It is the core of Africa in a story. There is something about this show that takes you back to 'your roots of rhythm'. A MUST SEE!
