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.
