If you have the chance to visit Swazi Cultural village it is really worth the while and the money. You start with a guided tour through a genuine (build) Swazi village where a guide in an original outfit takes you through everyday life of Swazi men, boys, girls and women. It is great to hear about their authentic lifes and... More

Swazi Cultural Village was one of the most interesting place I have ever visit. I traveled to more than 50 countries, but this location is unique. Heritage village, local in traditional dress, great show (dance, music and and ). You will not see like this not even in Africa.

Despite torrential rain, the village put on a great show of native dancing. The costumes were authentic, the dancers seemed to be having a great time, and the photo opportunities were perfect. There is a beautiful waterfall on the grounds of the reserve which can visit as well.

Touring a historical Swazi Village after walking down to the waterfall and viewing Execution Rock was a treat. We watched the dancers perform dances for both male and female along with singing. At the end, some of the dances pulled women from the audiance to learn the dance. Afterwards we toured the village learning about the culture, the various huts... More

One of the best places to visit. The traditional dance and their singing is so good you feel like watching them for the whole day. The tour is more interesting too. Friendly people. The walk to the waterfalls need you to be nicely fit with comfortable shoes. Entrance is R400 per car

We were shown around by a lovely chap called Trevor who was very knowledgeable and interesting, we then went to see the waterfall near by. The... More

If you are looking for truly African experience, you should not miss Swazi Cultural Village. When we entered the village, we are expecting some of kind of a museum-setting. We are pleasantly to find out that real people actually live in the village. A wonderful local young man guided us through the village and told us about the incredible traditions... More

We entered the cultural village and went directly to the theatre. We enjoyed the Zulu dance and sing show very much. The show was short but really mindblowing. You could buy a cd of them singing for about 100 Rand. Then we got a tour in "the village" where they want you to believe that they really live there. Tour... More
