Lesedi Cultural Village Reopens To Visitors

Fans of the popular Lesedi Cultural Village will be thrilled to know that the destination is back in business as it officially reopens its doors to the public following its temporary closure during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lesedi Cultural Village is in the heart of the African bushveld within the Cradle of Humankind and has become synonymous with an authentic experience that provides a window into the cultures and traditions of the people of Africa. Within Lesedi are five traditional homesteads, inhabited by people from the Zulu, Xhosa, Pedi, Basotho and Ndebele tribes. Lesedi is also home to many local artists, who sell their work to visitors and tourists, enabling them to support their families.

Guests who stay overnight at Lesedi stay in one of the five authentic homesteads, experiencing the perfect blend of traditional life and modern luxury. Each of the rooms within the five homesteads is built to showcase the original architecture and design (Zule Bee hive huts, Ndebele paintings) but has all the modern luxuries you would expect in a cosy hotel room. To top off the Lesedi experience, Lesedi’s Nyama Choma Restaurant offers the integral, edible element of African culture, and the way food forms part of any African celebration, featuring unique African tastes and traditional meals.

Guests that are looking for just a day out will be able to take part in a cultural tour which allows both international and local guests an insight into the history of Southern Africa and the many different cultures that make up the rainbow nation. The guided tour concludes with a traditional dance show that showcases a number of well known cultural dances in a colourful and energetic burst of sound and movement.

aha Hotels & lodges CEO, Graeme Edmond says, “Lesedi is a South African institution that has a special place in the hearts of everyone at aha and anyone who visits it. It provides much-needed employment opportunities for local communities and talented craftspeople, and gives visitors a true taste of South African hospitality and warmth.

“We are ecstatic that Lesedi is back, and open to give visitors a one-of-a-kind taste of our local culture and hospitality. We thank our loyal staff and the local community for standing by us and look forward to great success ahead.
