South Africa is known as the Rainbow Nation and this is thanks to Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who gave this culturally rich nation its endearing title.

There are 11 different official languages in the country and the heritage is shared among all cultures from the Zulu people to Xhosa, English, Afrikaners and Coloured people of the Cape.

To celebrate this beautifully colourful nation, Lesedi Cultural Village allows visitors to experience the various cultures first-hand.

You will be welcomed into the homes of the village residents who come from Basotho, Ndebele, Xhosa, Zulu and Pedi origins, for an authentic experience of their respective cultures.

They will share stories about their cultures and share with you the rituals of their day to day lives. These are not actors, but real people who have a deep passion for sharing a part of who they are with anyone who would like to know more.

Whether you are a local South African who would like to learn more about the people you share your culture with, or a tourist from afar who would like to experience Africa in an authentic way, the Lesedi Village is for you.

Sterkfontein Caves

The Cradle of Humankind is said to potentially hold the answers to where humanity originated from. This is an extremely important and sacred piece of land which has provided archaeologists with some of the most interesting discoveries known to man.

The Sterkfontein Caves, situated in the Cradle of Humankind is home to some of the most important of these discoveries – “Mrs Ples” and “Little Foot”.

2.1 million years old and 3 million years old respectively, these findings reveal an incredible amount of information regarding our predecessor, the Homo Sapien.

Tools as old as 2 million years old, also found in the caves, let us in on how our ancestors first learned how to make fire more than 1 million years ago.

Not only is this cave fascinating in its history, but with an enormous chamber and narrow pathways, its very own physical attributes are quite something to behold.

The Maropeng visitor centre is a must-see. It offers a world-class, interactive exhibition which focuses on the formation of Earth and how we have developed into modern-day humans.

On display you’ll find tools used by our ancestors over one million years ago as well as fascinating fossils.

The centre is close to the Sterkfontein caves and they even offer combined tour options, so this is the perfect day trip for those who want to journey into our incredibly fascinating past.

Quad Bike Safari

For the adventurers who prefer the open air, the Segweti quad bike safari is the perfect experience. Offering 650 hectares of Highveld to explore while spotting an incredibly diverse range of animals who call this land their home.

Springbok, Gemsbok, Kudu, Impala, Eland, and Red Hartebeest to name just a few of the antelope that can be seen here.

Although you’ll be on a quadbike, you won’t be racing through the landscape but rather taking a relaxed meander along the trails, with the occasional challenge to tackle.

While on this trail, you’ll get to see some of the most incredible views of the Magaliesberg and the Cradle of Humankind.

Once your journey is over, you have the option of enjoying an afternoon picnic while spotting some of the area’s most beautiful bird life.
