This is a must for anyone visiting the Kruger area. It is under-priced and over delivers. The energy and enthusiasm of the performers would not be out of place on a West End stage and the visit to the village is informative and fun. To give you some idea of how good this experience it is my two kids (9... More

Our tour group of nine was staying at Jackalberry Lodge when I asked the front desk person if a visit to Nyani could be arranged. After some calling around, a performance was set for later that day, and a van came to transport us to and from the cultural village. We were all thrilled with the high-energy, enthusiastic performances at... More

The history of the Africans as told in dance. The dancers have endless energy. I loved the show which lasted over 90 minutes. At the end of the show they invite the audience to join them in a dance. After their dances they give you a tour of a traditional South African village.

Our family really enjoyed the cultural show at the Nyani Cultural Village. The performers were all very enthusiastic and welcoming and made a wonderful event, even with a small audience. The dances, songs, custumes are authentic and all tell a story. There was interaction with the visitors, both during the show (drumming, dancing) and during the village tour, where the... More

This was a major highlight for us while staying in Hoedspruit. It was so emotional to see the singers and dancers performing right in front of you, and engaging with the audience. It was a wonderful way to spend our anniversary. :)

We booked this show, hoping to see some African dancing and we got a whole lot more! What amazing energy these young people put into the show. One would have thought it was the first time that they had done this - They put everything into it and was amazing. This is a MUST if you are in the area!

We booked this last minute as we were interested in including some sort of tribal experience into our holiday - the experience with the Nyani Cultural Tribe went above and beyond anything we ever could of imagined and turned out to be one of our most favourite experiences from the entire two weeks in Africa!

Used this group for pre wedding entertainment. They performed at Moholoholo Forerst Camp, which was an excellent setting for the night before. Guests from Europe, South Africa and the Middle East were all entertained to a very high standard. Not your usual boring native dancing and singing. The team worked very hard to put on an excellent show. Would recommend... More
