Tour Operators and Lodges information brochure

The history and culture of the African tribes comes to life at Nyani Cultural Village.

This Cultural attraction in Hoedspruit is an ideal destination for visitors and learners of all ages, with the program modified to suit all age groups in terms of content and duration.

The cultural journey starts in our Shangaan village where guests experience our original show “Limpopo Pathways” featuring the costumes, songs and dances of the San (Bushmen), the Shona & Venda, the Tsonga, the Balobedu (Modjadji the Rain Queen), the Pedi and the BaHananawa (Tswana).  We also include the Swati and Zulu dances as these tribes played an influential part in the history of the Limpopo.

The hour long theatre show is designed as an entertainment and educational tool telling the story of the origins, journeys and lifestyles of the tribes that settled in the Limpopo.  Presented in a natural setting, between the huts, the show is an exciting venture following the pathways of the tribes from the past to the present.

Following the show (approximately 60 minutes), we introduce all aspects of our Shangaan village.  Here we learn about the architecture, the agriculture, family duties and the customs of the Shangaan people.  Interaction and hands on participation are encouraged as guests discover how the huts are built, the maize is ground, the boys pass initiation, the girls learn to bead and more.  Here the performers take you on a journey through the stages of life in a Shangaan homestead (Muti).  We learn about traditional practices from birth, through childhood up to marriage, after which a delicious lunch is served in the typical African style.
