Cultural Pride ~ the VENDAs by 

Is so very rare, nowadays, to see south african ladies in traditional dress!

In the last 20 years is seen only when on special occasion (wedding, funeral etc)…. or for the benefit of the tourists !

These ladies are from the Venda tribe….we met them at Blyde River Canyon….and they were not there for any particular show…..They were elderly…… still close to their traditions……being tourists themselves in their own beautiful country !!

Yes I know….I could have done so much more with these wonderful subjects…but they are very private people…I had to sneak this shot – and I hate to do that!

None of my wildlife images are taken in zoos, animal sanctuaries, game farms or in a “canned” environment.

  • The Blyde River Canyon is part of the Panorama Route, in the Drakensberg (if that is what you were asking – my Afrikaans is almost non existent LOL!) Thanks for the Comment !
