“Good fun”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

The energy and colour was fantastic, the music brilliant and climactic walking on hot coals was highly dramatic. Only poor bit was the cameras and phones always held up in front of you!

“Good Show”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

Get there early for a decent view. A good show though the jugglers could do with some more practice :-)

“Make sure it's the first time you see the cultural dance”
Reviewed February 5, 2013

Interesting the first time you see it but it does go on a bit. You will be herded into the local red cross village hall and will sweat out a few hrs on a plastic chair. You'll pay fair bit to get in then on the way out they will get you again with the tip buckets

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

As cultural performances go it was OK!! The dancers and drummers did their bit - then the interesting part - the fire walking. Amazing - 2 men walking across 10 foot of hot coals. No health and safety here!! Its an hours worth of 'show' - worth the effort
