I was invited to spend a night at aha Lesedi last week along with joining in at the launch of their new dancing boma. Their previous dancing boma unfortunately burnt down last year, so they’ve now built a new state-of-the-art boma to take its place.
aha Lesedi is a cultural village located just outside of Johannesburg, about a 15-minute drive from Lanseria Airport. It’s a great place to experience and learn about all of the different traditional cultures in South Africa. They have five different traditional homesteads inhabited by the Zulu, Xhosa, Pedi, Basotho and Ndebele tribes. They do tribal dance performances, guided tours, have an on-site restaurant and also offer various accommodation.
