Experience the traditional way of life in the Mapulana community with a tour of the beautiful Shangana Cultural Village, just 5km from Hazyview and near the Kruger National Park. The proceeds of this tour go towards supporting over 100 rural jobs. The beginning of the tour takes guests along a winding path through the bush and agricultural fields. Once permission has been granted, guests enter a living village and meet the resident Shangana family for a glimpse into their cultural world. After visiting the sangoma (traditional healer) to learn about traditional medicines, guests are guided into the main kraal for a full traditional lunch prepared by the family of Chief Israel Ngobeni. The wives of the Chief wash guests’ hands before bringing pots from the fire to serve the food. After lunch, guests have a chance to browse the Marula Market, filled with local craft and curios.
