It was my first time in South Africa and for people like me, this is definitely a must. You get to see and learn about the culture, the languages, the traditions and food of the tribes. It was really enriching. Everybody was friendly. There is...More
A great way to see south african tribes in 1 place it was like a mini tour of half of south africa in 1 morning. Loved everything about it. From the reception to every person that was in the village. An awesome way to learn...More
The Village gives you a representative picture of the different cultures that comprise South Africa. You can stay overnight in the Village in one of their straw roofed units which are comfortable but without air conditioning. The tour gives you highlights of the different tribes...More

I do not have the words to describe how impacted I was by this visit. It put so many things into perspective and gave me an opportunity to fall in love with the motherland. I feel blessed beyond belief!!
Authentic African experience. Rooms were cleverly designed but very hot in summer and with very little cooling. Air-conditioning is non-negotiable but was not present in the room. A fan was eventually provided upon request. However not a very efficient way of cooling. Have to keep...More
We had our company year end function here in early December.
The place is very well kept and maintained. The tour of the villages for locals was a bit brief and too limited. The dancing was very entertaining.
We had a team building and had...More
This is a touristy activity, but it was still informative and the dancing was awesome. Long drive from Johannesburg, but you can go to the Cradle of Humankind while you are in the area. The tour we booked ended up only being us in a...More
We were fortunate to visit here last week and it was a beautiful and educational experience. Our little leader was a human dynamo who led us around the Centre with zest and passion and then followed up with a fabulous dancing display of cultures.
We did not stay at the hotel. We had arranged for a guide who drove us there and we purchased the tickets once there. The festivities started around 11:30 or 12:00. While waiting for the events to start we shopped at the... More
We did not stay at the hotel. We had arranged for a guide who drove us there and we purchased the tickets once there. The festivities started around 11:30 or 12:00. While waiting for the events to start we shopped at the vendors that are situated on the grounds. At the start of the tour we first went into an auditorium where they showed a short film and then the village guide talked some about the village. The guide was great, very engaging. He then took us on a tour of the various African villages that were set up. At each village, the guide talked about the customs of the tribe, etc. Following this tour we went into another auditorium where we saw singing and dancing which was great - the performers were excellent. After which we went to the dining hall where we feasted on excellent African cuisine. We were probably there 4 hours and truly enjoyed - would highly recommend.
