Full description
Following collection from your Durban accommodation, begin a day about context, immersion, and relevance. Your tour starts with you meeting the dancing curator of the Phansi Museum, who introduces you to a vast collection of indigenous art and crafts before you sample some pan-African cuisine. Following that, head to Isithumba - a living Zulu cultural village. There a local resident helps you to explore the village on foot, as you begin to understand a different way of life. If the ancestors are kind you may even meet the village chief or the local spiritual healer for an immersive exchange. The Markets of Warwick are your final stop. This curious quarter represents the beating heart of indigenous culture. Meet the Lime and Imphepho Gogos (female elders), and watch them create their goods before you witness Muthi Bridge, or as the locals like to call it - Sangoma Central. Unlock this mysterious place and get a feel for where the culture is heading, before your driver returns you to your accommodation.
