The idea of an African ‘cultural experience’ sometimes makes us cringe. It brings to mind superficial tribal dancing and local people portrayed demeaning, stereotypical roles for tourists to take photos of. Rest assured: this is absolutely not what we offer.
Looking through our website’s pages you’ll find very, very few places where we write of traditional cultural experiences.
That’s because we simply do not send visitors to interact with local people who live in Africa’s more fragile, original cultures unless we can be sure that it will be beneficial to both our visitors and their hosts.
Fortunately, there are a few places like this where you can meet individuals living traditional lives – and the meeting leaves you with a mutual understanding and respect.
