The Tropic of Capricorn (or the Southern Tropic) is the circle of latitude that contains the subsolar point on the December (or southern) solstice. It is thus the southernmost latitude where the Sun can be directly overhead. Its northern equivalent is the Tropic of Cancer.

The Tropic of Capricorn is one of the five major circles of latitude that mark mapsof the Earth. As of 28 March 2016, its latitude is 23°26′13.8″ (or 23.43718°) [1]south of the equator, but it is very gradually moving northward, currently at the rate of 0.47 arcseconds, or 15 metres, per year.

From this stop we head on to the Mashovhela hammock camp place of accommodation.

Can you hear the drum beat; can you feel the earth spin?

 

Venture off the beaten track 50km north-east of Louis Trichardt on the R523 between Thohoyandou and Makhado and you’ll find the Museum of the Drum and Dzata ruins.

 

The rural peacefulness of the place makes it hard to believe that this was once a thriving community. This significant archaeological site is the remains of the royal kraal of the Venda kings and dates back six thousand years to 1400.

 

Here you can learn about the rich art culture of the Venda and their famous domba dance at the Museum of the Drum. The building houses a replica of the enormous holy drum, reputed to have magical powers that incapacitate enemies.

As this will be our second day the focus will be cultural tour, all about the Tshivenda cultural deeds.

We will learn and experience the following :

1.   Tshikona or Tshigombela dance

2.   Ways in which our traditional healers practices.

3.   Story teller with regard to the up bringing of Vhavenda children , Domba, Musevhetho, Khomba & Hogo.

4.   If we lucky and we there on the day of the sitting we will attend the Tshivenda traditional court for the village only , Just so you know there’s high traditional court than that, so we have same Henrique of court like the western .

5.   Lastly we will enjoy touring the village with donkey car
