Ndebele Cultural Village
Mapoch is situated about 40km from Pretoria and offers a very rural (and non-commercial) cultural experience. The Mapoch community still lives in a traditional village manner and practices its customs and traditions in an authentic way. The geometric Ndebele artwork is striking and the symbolism is represented in rich mural paintings. There are daily guided tours and regular ceremonies in which visitors can take part in, and one can also support the local community by buying beadwork, arts and crafts.
Mkhombo is a large, 11 000ha reserve, which is somewhat unique in that it conserves an easterly Kalahari thornveld environment around the shores of a large dam. This feature provides a wonderful variety of natural habitats across a relatively small area. One of the principal attractions is the quality of the angling where some record catches have been taken. Vlei kurper, bass, carp, and barbel are the more common species.
Birders are attracted to Mkhombo for the many bushveld species, including the lilac-breasted roller and the black-breasted snake eagle.
