Fundudzi Cultural Camp is a traditional camp, nestled at the foot of the Luaname Mountains, in the heart of traditional Venda territor. This is an ideal place from which to explore a region famed for its sacred places and traditional Venda arts and crafts. The accommodation is provided in five self-catering rondavels.
Each of the traditional rondavels have comfortable beds, although bedding is not provided but can be arranged when booking, for a small addition fee. The ablution, kitchen, dining and camp-fire facilities are communal, and give adventure travellers an ideal opportunity to meet and interact with other like-minded travellers. You will share a gas hob and camp fire for cooking, as well as fridge and freezer for storage of food. The necessary pots, crockery and cutlery are also supplied. Catering by local villagers can be arranged.
There is no electricity, and paraffin or solar lanterns are provided for light at night. If planning to braai or make a fire, don’t forget to bring firewood. While it is safe to drink, some people don’t like the taste of the local water, so you are advised to bring your own bottled drinking water.
Visitors to Fundudzi have the opportunity to immerse themselves in a beautiful environment. In a hugely fertile valley with modern tea plantations, the real gems are the natural areas with forests, lakes, rivers and waterfalls. The area is well populated with rural villages and tourists will be spoilt for choice visiting crafters, manufacturers of Minwenda (traditional Venda clothing), Malungu (traditional beads) and Makunda (traditional bangles).
