LESEDI AFRICAN LODGE OVERNIGHT EXPERIENCE
SPEND A NIGHT IN TRADITIONAL AFRICA – A KALEIDOSCOPE
OF CULTURAL COLOUR
Lesedi African Lodge and Cultural village 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.
On arrival at Lesedi in the late afternoon, guests are welcomed
in the traditional African way with a suitable escort to ‘their’
village. Once settled in comfortable, traditionally styled
rooms, guests will then have the opportunity of discovering
the many colourful and fascinating aspects of the cultures
of the people of Lesedi.
New additions to the village and African Lodge, are the luxury
Nguni rooms which include richly decorated double suites.
These carry the same vibrant colours and energy as the other
guestrooms in the village and are also unique to the Zulu
tribe they represent, adding to the already numerous accommodation
The discovery begins at the Ndebele village where the introduction
to the cultural experience precedes a multi-media presentation
on the history and origins of today’s rainbow nation.
This is followed by a guided tour of the other four ethnic
homesteads – Zulu, Basotho, Xhosa and Pedi. As the sun
sets over the African bush, guests are escorted to the Boma
for traditional singing and dancing (a very participative
affair!!) depicting stories that date back to the days of
Guests are then treated to a Pan African Buffet in the Nyama
Choma Restaurant – “The Greatest African Feast”!
In the morning after awakening to the sounds of traditional
maskande guitar or squash-box, a full English breakfast is
served in the restaurant.
Lesedi and its cultural experience of old and new Africa
was co-founded by African explorer, Kingsley Holgate, who
ensures that every attraction is not only fascinating, but
enriching. One of Lesedi’s many differentiating factors
is the village’s natural and tasteful incorporation
into the surrounding heart of the bushveld and rocky hills.
