Mgwali Cultural Village

Local crafts, traditional garments and woven materials are produced here. Traditional food is also served and visitors can view a museum of photographs, historical art and crafts depicting local history and customs. An elder in the community (Mr K Gija) explains the traditions and ceremonies while taking visitors on an ox-cart trip around the area to Sangomas (traditional healers), a pipe-maker and numerous artisans making traditional Xhosa pottery and other goods.

Also on view is an imitation initiation hut used by young men during circumcision rites.
