experience the culture of Botswana

Botswana’s first President, Sir Seretse Khama used to say, “a nation without a past is a lost nation, and a people without a past is a people without a soul”. He said this when calling out to Africans, more especially Batswana, not to forget their roots.

When we were self-driving ourselves we spent our time in nature. If you do that you miss out the beautiful culture of Botswana. Directly from our farm you can discover it yourself.

Akanyang our neighbor is part of a traditional dance group. She will welcome you to her cattle post where she and her group will perform traditional dances. This is still so pure and nothing like what they do in lodges to entertain tourists.

We have to book it a few days in advance as Akanyang needs to invite the other women and walk to their places as this is still the way of communication in the communities.

You can try the dances yourself if you wish. You will feel like an African dancer dancing in their traditional skirt made of reeds.

It is nice to the session in the late afternoon or evening followed by a traditional meal.

Costs of the dance group are P 1.500. The ladies will be very happy with this extra income.
