Description

Only 20 km east of Golden Gate lies the Basotho Cultural Village, a true gem of this northern national park. Here you can catch a glimpse of the traditional lives of the Basotho people who have lived in this area for centuries and have a close affinity to the tribes living just across the border in Lesotho. The beautiful and colourfully decorated Basotho huts, along with the people in traditional dress, are set to amaze visitors who will even have an opportunity to meet the village chief and sample the traditional beer.

A half-hour tour through the village will present the guest with remarkable moments, from hearing musicians playing their instruments to seeing a traditional healer throwing the bones. The unique litema, or external decoration on houses, is in its truest form and is still visible in rural Lesotho and Free State.

Be sure to stop at the curio shop to see the local crafts, including raffia mats, baskets, and conical straw hats that are all unique to this area and Lesotho.

Comfortable self-catering accommodation is available to guests who can also relish in the communal braai facilities. Guests can rest assured that the self-catering accommodation will be nothing short of comfortable and cosy. The natural surroundings serve to only enhance this picturesque little setting in the park, where safe game viewing can happily be enjoyed without the effort of embarking on an actual game drive.

The Basotho Cultural Village Rest Camp is only 55 km from Harrismith and the N3; it is sited along the Maluti Drakensberg Route only 350 km from Pietermaritzburg, 330 km from Bloemfontein and 320 km from Johannesburg. The village is only 42 km away from the renowned Clarens, a tourist Mecca of the Free State Province through the scenic Golden Gate Highlands National Park.
