Ga-Malahlela village experience

Like many South Africans, we love the idea of living in a rainbow-nation. Our nation boasts an incredibly rich cultural heritage and it is a fabulous feeling to head off into a village to experience the rhythm of daily life from the perspective of a different culture. Ga-Malahlela village tour and Home Stay is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a day in the heart of a Sotho household. As with real life, what is happening in the village on the day you visit, determines what you do. Often a visit begins at the Sangoma’s home to better understand this ancient art of divining and traditional healing. A stop at the crèche brings out your silly side as you play skipping games and try to keep up with the little legs. After a quick game of pool in the tavern, you can have a taste sensation at the home of your host, Johanna and Mary Ramoroaswi where you can try traditional food such as Pap, wild spinach, mopane worms, ‘walkie-talkies’ and wash it down with a pot of traditional beer. You may have a wonky neck after trying to carry a bucket of water on your head but the experience of helping to cook the evening meal over an open fire gives you a new appreciation for the real flavours of Africa and the warm hospitality of a village home.

Take a half or full-day village trip through Kurisa Moya or stay overnight with a family for a Village Home Stay.
