“Waste of time!”

Basotho Cultural Village
Reviewed 17 April 2018 via mobile

Dont even bother. This place should be removed.

After driving through the golden gate we took the effort to go back and up to the "village"... All we we were met with was a dodgy deserted complex without a soul in sight.

Another great example of failed use of government funds.

learned a lot about the Basotho people and their way of life thanks to the guide who was easy going, and answered all the questions

Honestly, this place is a bit of a joke. We understand the reason why this place exists and maintained. However the staff is rollplaying which does not have the desired effect. Even stronger, the rollplaying destructs from the real purpose and meaning of this museum.

Stopped in to see. Missed the tour times.
Souvenir shop is virtually empty and over priced.
No place to even get refreshments.
Walk around with the blaring noise of music from visitors I the chalets I assumed. Then my girlfriend and I were subjected to a gentleman that was as intoxicated as the rest unzipping his pants and urinating in front of us on the common walkway.
Never again

We couldnt get hold of reception telephonically so decided to drive the 35km. At first we couldnt understand what the receptionist said. When she repeated herself, we realised that we were told to pay the full fee and to join the tour that started 10 min ago. When we were told that only cash is accepted we left and got value for our money by having breakfast at cinnamon and sugar restaurant instead.

and askedto please repeat what she as we were told that we will have to join the group that have already started a few minutes ago.
