Ma Betty's authentic Xhosa Cultural Village is situated in the impoverished township of Bongulethu translating to 'our pride' in Xhosa. Nelson Mandela is a proud Xhosa with the tribe having inhabited South Africa for over 1500 years. Ma Betty keeps Xhosa tradition pure sharing traditional activities, culture, dance, food and storytelling with visitors to her Oudtshoorn kraal (hut).

Resident Women prepare authentic Xhosa dishes in black iron pots flamed on a traditional open fire. The unique flavours of Africa including Xhosa sausage, steamed corn bread and 'samp' (thick corn porridge) are enjoyed in recipes past down from the ancestors and received by appreciative guests. Traditional healers called 'Sangomas' (witchdoctors) throw bones to call healing spirits. Xhosa women and children dance enthusiastically stomping their feet on the dusty African earth. Xhosa songs and stories carry customs in harmony on an African beat. African music and feasting can be enjoyed in the arrangement of your own traditional Xhosa wedding.

Transport to the cultural village can be arranged from the local Tourism Office. All visitors are welcome and contribute greatly to the upliftment of this Xhosa community.
