The area in which Bokmakierie Country Lodge is situated makes it a prime destination for any one who is interested in enjoying some of the finest cultural experiences available in South Africa. Because of Ladysmith's rich heritage it has become the site of not only some extraordinary cultural destinations such as the cultural museum, but also of some remarkable and internationally renowned musical attractions such as the Ladysmith Black Mambazo and the Drakensburg Boys' Choir. Another truly fascinating cultural experience which is synonymous with the Ladysmith area is the local Amazulu culture which is prevalent among many of the Amazulu people who live in the area. The Amazulu culture is an amazingly rich and intricate culture which stems back centuries and has been made famous by the Amazulu peoples historic King Shaka. We have selected three prime cultural attractions in the area which we felt we would like to highlight, so to view more information and/or photographs on either the Drakensburg Boys Choir, the Ladysmith Black Mambazo or the Amazulu people.
