The Lesedi Cultural Village was established to provide an authentic showcase of the traditional cultures of some of the well-known African tribes, who have their home in South Africa. Representatives of these tribes were involved in the design of the villages to ensure an accurate, historically representative portrayal of their indigenous cultures. They are meant to showcase and highlight a more traditional way of life, day-to-day activities and give an intimate view of tribal rituals. The villages are lived in today by members of these communities, which serves to breathe life into their fascinating cultures. Situated within the Cradle of Humankind, Lesedi provides the visitor with a better understanding of the rich cultural background of the traditional peoples of South Africa.
