Our tour group of nine was staying at Jackalberry Lodge when I asked the front desk person if a visit to Nyani could be arranged. After some calling around, a performance was set for later that day, and a van came to transport us to and from the cultural village. We were all thrilled with the high-energy, enthusiastic performances at the thatched-roof theatre, and the chance to learn about the culture and history of these people. At the end of the hour-long show, some of our group got on stage and joined in a dance. Then we retired to the adjacent re-creation of a village, where we learned even more. One of our group was invited to engage in brief swordplay, and I was chosen to be "king" for a while, perhaps because I thought my wife was worth the extravagant price of 12 cows! I'm glad we took the time to learn more about the people here, and didn't just stick with the safari-drive routine.

The history of the Africans as told in dance. The dancers have endless energy. I loved the show which lasted over 90 minutes. At the end of the show they invite the audience to join them in a dance. After their dances they give you a tour of a traditional South African village.

Our family really enjoyed the cultural show at the Nyani Cultural Village. The performers were all very enthusiastic and welcoming and made a wonderful event, even with a small audience. The dances, songs, custumes are authentic and all tell a story. There was interaction with the visitors, both during the show (drumming, dancing) and during the village tour, where the stories were told of marriages and daily lives in the tribal villages. We also had a very delicious lunch, in the traditional way. Some cooked worms are part of it - which you may or may not try. It is a show to be visited! Personally I found it difficult to find out how to book a show, but Maureen Lahoud is the person to contact. She is an excellent coordinator and quick to respond. maureenlahoud@gmail.com / +27 83 785 5354
