We invite you to explore through experiencing the regions culture and heritage the essence of the local peoples - whether it's following a Hindu procession down a street in Mauritius or Durban during the Diwali festival, meeting a sangoma (traditional healer), learning all about kwaito (African house music) at a local township shebeen (bar) in South Africa, or learning the age-old traditions of the Masai (Kenya) and Himba (Namibia) tribes.
Some people come from rural villages, while others were born in urban areas. Some have crossed borders and others have crossed oceans. People worship different gods, feast at different tables and express who they are in many different ways. The regions people have an incredible history and often their fight for freedom and independence, and maintaining a broad cultural landscape, has resulted in an open and accommodating welcome, and a willingness to share their story.
