During our educational tour through Africa, one of the tribes we encountered were the Ndebele.


We met them somewhere between Pretoria and Gauteng. We stayed overnight with part of their tribe and our tour leader translated some of one tribal man's stories to us over dinner.

The food smelled good, but I wasn't able to try it as I have terrible food allergies and it wouldn't have been wise to try something which could potentially kill me, without a hospital around.

There was a woman from the tribe that taught some of us girls to make these dolls from this colored grass which was pretty neat.

Everyone from the Ndebele tribe was nice and welcoming towards us.
