A great day! Very information. I loved learning about the customs and traditions of each tribe. Very detailed. Tribe members very very nice and open to answering question.. Tour ended with fabulous energetic dancing and an African feast!! Loved it!
We stayed in a hut in the Zulu Village. Loved the unique accommodation. We enjoyed the tour and the high energy dance demonstrations. The buffet style dinner was lovely as well. A positive experience for this family of 4 (kids, 8 & 10)
Lesedi is a kind of open-air museum where you get to know to the customs and culture of 4 main tribes. After some introduction movie you are walked through the different villages and you will see different demonstrations there. Our guide was funny and we...More

My friend flew in from Germany for a long weekend - her first to RSA and selecting Lesedi is an obvious choice. The staff are friendly and more than accommodating. The full experience is incredible value for money at the very least but more importantly...More
This site allowed us to visit traditional homesteads inhabited by Zulu, Xhosa, Pedi, Basotho, and Ndebele tribes, also to understand the cultures too. Our tour included the lunch, where I was surprised to hear an African spoke mandarin to tell us what type of meat...More
We arrived just in time for the dance show and lunch, which were very good. Afterwards however, we were expecting to have someone to show us the villages, but we were informed that there was no one available and we had to wait until 4:30pm....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.

Hello Shirley B, we did exactly that! We flew from Australia, arrived in J'Burg about 5:00am in the morning. We dropped our bags off at our accommodation (near OR Tambo Airport), showered, had breakfast, then got picked up by our driver. We headed off to the Cradle of Humankind where we spent about 2.5 hours (including exploring the Sterkfontein Cave there). We then had lunch at the Lion and Safari Park in Kalkheuvel (en route to the Lesedi Cultural Village). We arrived at Lesedi late afternoon, then spent about 3 hours there taking in the cultural tour. And we also had dinner there. So yes, your plans are very achievable. Hope that helps!
