Fundudzi Cultural Camp
Visitors to Fundudzi have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a beautiful environment. In a hugely fertile valley with modern tea plantations, the real gems are the natural areas with forests, lakes, rivers and waterfalls. The area is well populated with rural villages and tourists will be spoilt for choice visiting crafters, manufacturers of Minwenda (traditional Venda clothing), Malungu (traditional beads) and Makunda (traditional bangles). For those wanting a closer understanding of some of the local rituals, a demonstration of the Domba Dance (python dance) can be pre-arranged for evening entertainment at Fundudzi.
Fundudzi Cultural Camp has 5 stand-alone thatched rondavels, each with two ¾ beds, chairs and a bedside stand. This needs to be arranged at the time of booking. Ablutions are en-suite, with flush toilets, shower and basins. The kitchen, dining and camp-fire facilities are communal, and you will share a gas hob and camp fire for cooking, as well as fridge and freezer for storage of food. The necessary pots, crockery & cutlery are also supplied. Catering by local villagers can be arranged – please pre-order when booking. There is no electricity, and paraffin or solar lanterns are provided for light at night. If self-catering, don’t forget to bring firewood.
