Safari Enquiry

South Africa has a lot of cultural heritage and visiting local villages can be an enriching experience on your South African Safari Tour.

These villages offer a unique opportunity to learn about South African tribal culture, history, and traditions while enjoying traditional food and entertainment.

South African cultures and their nuances – Zulu people

There is no single tribal culture in South Africa. Even the Zulu people, the largest ethnic group in the country, are diverse in their beliefs and customs.

With such an abundance of cultures to explore, there’s no end of opportunities to immerse yourself in local culture and discover new ways of life.

In addition to organized tours, there are many villages throughout the South African Safri Tours that welcome visitors.

Some popular villages include Lesedi Cultural Village in Gauteng province, Shangana Cultural Village near Kruger National Park, Khaya La Bantu Cultural Village in Cape Town, Basotho Cultural Village in Free State province, and Botshabelo Mission Station in Mpumalanga province.
