Pilanesberg visitors can choose from a variety of activities!
Pilanesberg is popular with companies for team building and families who want to reconnect. Even couples who want to break away from the city or tourists who want to experience the African bush and indigenous culture.
There is something special about this area where the old traditions mix with a celebration of being together. Here, different cultures can learn from each other and the local tribe can teach you more about their traditions with the African music experience or village visit.
African Music Experiences
Nothing gets you into the spirit of community quite like drumming away to an African beat! Drumming is considered one of the first forms of communication. So take your team or family back to basics and see how they connect with each other after this experience.
This is a great way to welcome your team. The African percussion band consists of the West African djembe drum, the dun-dun bass drum and tambourines.
The Marimba is a wooden instrument like a xylophone. The marimba band takes you on a musical journey with it’s pure, bouncy wooden chime. In a band, there are different sizes of marimbas. The big bass marimba to the small flute-like chimes cover a wide spectrum of tones. The band also has two percussionists.
African Tribal Dancing
The tribes of Africa have a rich tradition of dance. Each tribe has their own style and costumes, but what they all have in common is their love of dancing. Dance is expressive and we can promise that you will leave the performance with your feet itching!
Local Village visit
While in the Pilanesberg area, it makes sense to visit Moruleng village to learn more about the people of the area. The tour is led by the local Bakgatla-Ba-Kgafela tribe: the original inhabitants of the Pilanesberg area.
The guides will take you to the museum, heritage sights and show you their town. You will get a cooking class and you will be served the local cuisine as well!
