This magnificent show with a cast of some choir members, actors and dancers tells the story of the Shangaan nation. As the sun sets over the mountains the beating of drums grows louder as warriors guide guests into the great Kraal of Chief Soshangana, a circle of royal huts lit by flames. The show is mesmerizing – colourful, varied, moving and entertaining.
At interval, the chief’s wives serve a traditional feast, including crocodile strips in a spicy peanut sauce, mopane worms, baked butternut, fire-grilled corn wheels and an array of other Shangaan dishes.
