Shangana Cultural Village – Hazyview (Full Day)

Description

Tour Duration – 8 Hours

The picturesque villages are set in the shade of ancient trees in a reserve of forest and grassland. In the village, the guide explains different facets of the Shangaan way of life, including their history and customs, initiation ceremonies, the practice of polygamy, the outfits and weapons of masocho (warriors), the construction of homes, ornate beadwork clothing, and the preparation of food. After saying good bye to the family, the guests visit the mystical kraal of the Sangoma (traditional healer). 

The Sangoma explains different mutis (medicines) and may throw his bones on request. Special tours for groups may be arranged where people from surrounding villages come to show off the traditional Shangaan dancing.
