|PROTEA HOTEL LESEDI AFRICAN LODGE
A warm welcome to Protea Hotels Lesedi - Gauteng's most exciting showcase of African Culture. As the sun sets over the African bush, GUESTS are escorted by the Cultural hosts of Lesedi for an experience of a lifetime and introduced to the art, dancing, history, tribal legend and cuisine of five of Southern Africa's greatest tribes.
The cultural programme begins with a multi-visual presentation on the history and origins of today's rainbow nation, followed by a tour of four ethnic homesteads - Xhosa, Zulu, Pedi and Sotho. GUESTS are then escorted to the Boma for traditional singing and dancing and the people of Lesedi tell stories that date back to the days of their ancestors.
A traditional African-style feast is served in the restaurant, with a full bar close at hand. At the end of the evening, GUESTS can either gather around the open fire and talk late into the night, or be escorted back to their cosy rooms by members of their host family.
