We visited the village to experience the guided tour of the village. It is well worth the visit. The tour gives you experiences of one of South Africa's indigenous cultures' historic day-to-day life. The tour is well thought out and having the opportunity to taste...More

Very unique accommodation. We stayed in the 4 sleeper rondawel and it was very pleasant. The unit offered a heater and electric blankets for the cold winter nights. The tea and coffee and the toiletries came in very handy. A stay close to nature
