September is Heritage Month, and the Venda people of the Vhembe District municipality are going to celebrate it in style.Venda culture is famous for its traditional dances, which are usually performed as part of celebrating Heritage Month. The local municipality often gets together with local and community radio stations to organize heritage events, and the year 2017 is no exception.

The area is going to host a music festival which includes performances from gospel artists, traditional music and contemporary hip-hop. The event will include a Fun Walk, which is expected to be graced by His Majesty Khosikhulu Toni Mphephu Ramabulana, King of the Vhavenda nation.

During this period, UIGC Travel will be providing guests and tourists with bookings for accommodation, making tour guides available, and facilitating car rentals. UIGC Travel will be happy to ensure that people who visit the area are taken care of and that their visit is made memorable. Any tourist is encouraged to visit our website or make enquiries via where our friendly and competent staff are waiting to assist. We always go the extra mile to ensure that the client is happy.

Should you happen to be in this region, make sure you attend, among other events, the Nadoni Royal Gardens music festival and the traditional music concerts through September. You will miss out if you do not find time to visit Phiphidi Waterfalls, Nadoni Dam; the famous Thathevondo forest, Mukumbani Tea Estate, Lake Fundudzi Lake and the majestic Tshatshingo potholes. As you leave the area you will be encouraged to exit through the Kruger National Park. This District is an absolute must for all those who appreciate nature and all the wonder of Creation.

Arguably, one of the Venda region’s best-kept secrets is its people – perhaps the friendliest people in South Africa. Visitors are always treated as royalty in this part of the world. No matter what time of the day or year you visit, you will always be warmly received and appreciated. As an added bonus, it is one area in South Africa where crime is very low. The spirit of neighbourliness and hospitality still prevail. Whenever you are in Venda, you are never lost. This is practically a home away from home.

If you are packing your bags for Venda for the first time, note that the area boasts of warm weather throughout the year. You are safe to pack lightly. It is not surprising that the area is full of fruits and vegetables. You will be sure to enjoy bananas, avocados, mangos, oranges, and all sorts of nuts, at the lowest prices ever experienced – so your visit will not only be safe and warm, but healthy too.

To get the most out of your visit to the region, allow UIGC Travel to manage your trip. At UIGC Travel, we have the expertise and the local knowledge to ensure that you will see the best attractions at an affordable price. Our friendly people look forward to welcoming you.
