Lonely Planet review for Basotho Cultural Village
Within the park you’ll find the small Basotho Cultural Village. It’s essentially an open-air museum, peopled by actors depicting various aspects of traditional Sotho life. A two-hour guided hiking trail (R60 per person) explores medicinal and other plants, and a rock-art site. You can stay in two-person, self-catering rondavels (round huts; R650), but bring your own food. Although this is a friendly place, with a lot of good information on traditional customs and culture, it is also essentially artificial and idealised. To see how most Sotho live, cross the border into Lesotho.
