My husband was skeptical at attending this, but turns out we had an amazing time! Great introduction of the area's history shown through music and dance, and traditional food (complete with cooked worm!). Very unknown - a hidden gem!

This was a major highlight for us while staying in Hoedspruit. It was so emotional to see the singers and dancers performing right in front of you, and engaging with the audience. It was a wonderful way to spend our anniversary. :)

Absolutely correct
Hello. I hope you are having a nice day. We will be visiting Kruger July 23 thru July 28. Are you open then? What time of day should we come? Is it best to come in the late afternoon? We are 4 adults and 2 children. What is the cost? How long of a drive is it from Graskop or from Hazyview? Which Kruger gate are you closest to? Thank you for your help. Dan
