Having left Jock Sabie lodge on Sunday morning we took a drive through to Hazyview for a quick souvenir stop and also chance for some of those who wanted to visit the reptile park. A short 15 minute drive then took us to Shangana cultural village, home of the Shangana people. We were welcomed to the village with the blowing of the Kudo horn and some students were also able to have a go at this. We met our guide and then took a short walk through to the village itself where we met the Chief and were given a talk on the lifestyle and nature of the Shangana people. The village itself consisted of a number of huts, one for the Chief, one each for his three wives as well as huts for cooking, a small village garden, including banana trees and chickens and goats. Having had chance to ask questions and have our photographs taken with the Chief we then went on to meet the medicine doctor (witch doctor) who taught us many natural medicines from the bush used for curing a range of ailments. Following our visit to the village we were treated to a lunch prepared by the Shangana tribe. Chicken and potatoes, vegetables, green salad, milipap and homemade corn bread followed by fruit. Finally we were treated to a spectacular performance of traditional dancing before leaving for the Kruger National Park!
