The village found on the eastern side of the world-renowned Golden Gate Highlands National Park, resembles a traditional Basotho village, with the interior and exterior of the huts done by Basotho women. Watch traditional dancing and singing, or experience a Basotho meal in the sandstone amphitheatre. The rest camp offers self-catering rondawels with amazing views of the surrounding landscape. There are private Weber braai (barbeque) facilities for the chalets, and a communal braai area for the guests sharing the kraal. The village also has an art gallery and curio shop with Basotho arts and crafts.

“"The Free State landscape gladdens my heart, no matter what my mood. When I am here I feel that nothing can shut me in, that my thoughts can roam as far as the horizons.” - Former State President Nelson Mandela wrote in his autobiography Long Walk to Freedom. It is here where Basotho Cultural Village Rest Camp nestles on the eastern side of the amalgamated Golden Gate Highlands National Park. The camp resembles an 18th century Basotho Village. The surroundings take you back from the pathway of previous times to the modern days, here the Basotho lifestyle, architectural and hospitality is the order of the day. The Basotho Cultural Village Rest Camp offers comfortable self-catering accommodation with splendid views where game viewing is practically enjoyed without the trouble of having to embark on a game searching journey. The Camp also has communal braai facilities that are shared amongst families sharing the kraal and also private webber braai facilities for every chalet. Kgotso! We greet You in Peace, come stay with us, dance to our rhythm, sip from our traditional beer, consult our Ngaka (Traditional Healer) and come to Lekhotla (the gathering place for men). The tranquil and healing cultural heritage experience awaits you, Kgotso!! Pula!! Nala!!” - Brian Lipschitz, 2009/10/23
