Traditional Meals

Tourists get to indulge in a traditional meal, showcasing how to dine, and sipping sorghum beer amongst the ancestors in a hut. In so doing, they get to embrace the social customs and traditions of our forbearers, as our people have done for generations.

Cultural Sip and Dine - A traditional dining experience
 
Rondavel room is differentiated into a two-gender section - men on the right and women on the left. Men are seated on a bench and women on the grass mats (chairs are available on request). This is part of Zulu culture, whereby men sit facing the east and women sit in the opposite direction facing the men.
 
A praise singer welcomes the guests at the gate
