The four-day event, unlike last year, incorporated three important events; namely the language and culture consultation workshop, the first heritage tour and cultural festival and the South East Business indaba focusing on tourism.

In an interview with NewsDay yesterday, one of the organisers Herbert Pikhela made a plea for corporate assistance to promote cultural activities in the Lowveld.

“The festival was a success. Everything went according to our plans and the greatest thing is that we received many guests than we anticipated,” he said.

“We toured various areas including Buffalo Range Airport, Murray Museum in Tongaat Hulett, Gonarezhou National Park and other areas. We also had various groups that performed cultural dances during our tours.”

The cultural fair and festival is an international event that brings together communities around the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park from South Africa, Mozambique and Zimbabwe that use a culture-based approach in solving pertinent issues that include poverty, wildlife crime, irregular migration and illiteracy, among others.

The Great Limpopo Transfrontier Conservation Areas tour involved delegates from South Africa, Mozambique, local chiefs, leaders, government ministries and the media.
