Heritage Day is an annual reminder of who we are as a nation and where we come from culturally. The Lesedi cultural village, celebrates our African heritage all year round. Found in the historical Cradle of Humankind is a unique social and cultural encounter you’ll never forget.
Guests lucky enough to visit aha Lesedi get to experience traditional life at five authentic tribal homesteads in Lesedi Cultural Village. A visit to the homesteads opens up a genuine window into the lifestyles, customs and traditions of the Zulu, Xhosa, Bapedi, Basotho and Ndebele people.
Lesedi is a living tribute to the vast diversity of South Africa’s people, bringing age-old lifestyles and customs to life in a beautiful bushveld setting. aha Hotels & Lodges CEO Graeme Edmond said, “Heritage Day is a testament to everything that makes us so proudly South African. And what better way to celebrate it than to visit a unique part of the country that truly honours South Africa’s people and culture? The Lesedi experience is something you won’t find anywhere else in the world. There’s incredible food, amazing entertainment and vibrant culture here that will always be a part of South Africa’s identity.”
