Meet the Makers Tour: Description
GET A TASTE OF DIVERSE LANDSCAPES AND HANDSCAPES WITHIN SOUTH AFRICA
The Urban — the buzzing, big-city culture of Johannesburg and Pretoria
The Rural — landmark locations and personalities around the Limpopo province
See how creativity and cultures flourish — intersections at the cutting edge.
In Johannesburg, with its standout skyline and cosmopolitan mix, take in two significant art fairs:
FNB Art Joburg, and LATITUDES – both platforms showcasing the best of contemporary African art.
Visit some powerful museums, prominent galleries, creative hotspots, vibrant precincts, and a beguiling sculpture park / artist residency & foundation.
In Pretoria, view signature contemporary artworks, the historically significant Mapungubwe Collection, plus the AshantiGold Barbier-Mueller Collection of jaw-dropping gold objects.
In the Limpopo region, meet a wealth of makers:
At Mogalakwena, watch creative hands at work
At Mapungubwe, see the remains of an ancient civilization in a sacred location
At Madi a Thavha, unpack the heritage of the Venda, Tsonga & Shangaan cultures
Around Elim, interact with Thomas Kubayi & protégés
At the Vhutsila Art Centre, visit acclaimed artist Noria Mabasa
At Thohoyandou’s Art & Culture Centre, link up with Avhashoni Mainganye and his creative initiatives
ENJOY DISTINCTIVELY DIFFERENT SAFARIS
A ‘Fossil safari’ in the heart of the Cradle of Humankind and World Heritage Site, at a treasure-trove that is revealing our ancestral lineage.
A ‘Creative safari’ in the Limpopo that combines up-close wildlife encounters with Venda art. Leshiba is an Eden-like retreat hidden in a valley on top of a mountain, where you’ll stay in a village that is a tribute to Venda art, architecture and design, which reveals its myths, magic, and legends.
GIVE BACK – AN ARTISTS’ FUND
A percentage from this tour’s proceeds goes towards upliftment projects within artistic communities in the Limpopo region via a fund administered by social development entrepreneurs, the Rebergens.
