Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This show absolutely blew my mind! It was vibrant, entertaining, informative and colourful. The energy and passion from the team was palpable and uplifting. Audience participation is normally a dread for me, but I was drawn in and wanted to fully experience and be part of the performance! The authenticity of the music and dance was truly emotive and captivating.

Fabulous afternoon watching the amazing dancers entertaining us, had every respect for them dancing with such enthusiasm in the heat. Even though they were telling a serious story about their culture & country they incorporated humour & audience participation. Loved every minute

Wow! I did not know what to expect but was thoroughly blown away. The energy, passion and authentic experience was unmatched. The representation of the different tribes of Africa was very interesting. The audience participation was very fun. The performers are what make the show.

We visited Nyani village on our first morning in Africa - what a start! So much energy, creativity and musicality. We loved it! The experience took us through the history of various tribes, the importance of the 'village' and community and gave us a taste of African tribal life.
Despite the rain (it really didn't matter) we had a brilliant, brilliant time. The staff, especially Maureen and Basil, were so kind and helpful and the food was great.
I thoroughly recommend this show.

We attended a cultural show and had lunch at this beautiful village, recreated (and I think beautifully run) by Ms. Maureen. The theme was a central courtyard where everything 'happened' in the village with the peripheral huts serving the function of residences, a kitchen and toilet.
The show started with a brief introductory talk on the people of the village, how they migrated from their ancient lands and converged on the Limpopo area to settle...with an excellent (ancient ) map.
This was followed by a series of dances - everyone more energetic than the last - in colourful tribal costumes (while Ms. Lahoud was measuring up members of the troupe for future regalia!)
It tired me out just watching the throbbing energy, the smiles, the drums, the singing, the mock battles, the obviously Scottish kilt-like skirts of the Zulu warriors (were suddenly explained), the daily activities, a mock wedding - and a real feast at lunchtime with Ugali, served with vegetables, chicken and for the more adventurous like me - Mopane worms.

Thank you Laila for this incredible "report". I am so amazed by how vividly you have captured your experience. And how many details captured your attention. Thank you so very much for your exquisite words and I'm very impressed you tried a delicious Mopani worm. Brilliant!

I did this tour last week and really enjoyed it. The dancers are really good and have a great sense of humour and interact well with the visitors. Great photo opportunities.

Thank you so much for your review. Roots of Rhythm dancers love what they are doing and it is always a pleasure to share the songs, dances and stories of the Limpopo Province (Valley of the Elephants) with our very special visitors. Our joy is to see our guests smile.

We loved this experience - great way to learn about history and traditions. Wonderful and good quality singing and dancing, not too touristy despite being a tourist attraction, has an authentic feel, would recommend, also for children.
