If you want the most traditional experience of the Xhosa culture in modern South Africa without intruding on people's lives, we suggest you check out Ma Betty's Cultural Village. Located in the heavily impoverished township of Bongolethu in the Western Cape, local tourism is banking on you to bring dollars into their community by way of dancing, singing, and authentic cuisine by a resident women's group, as well as ceremonies led by the local sangoma (healer/witch doctor). Make sure to book with the Oudtshoorn tourism office ahead of time!
Location:Oudtshoorn, South Africa
Note:Ma Betty's is 437 km (272 miles) east of Cape Town, the nearest large city, on N1 Road.
