Bakone Malapa Open Air Museum


This village offers visitors some insight into the background and history of the Bakone people, a sub-group of the Northern Sotho. The village has been reconstructed in the style used by the Northern Sotho approximately 250 years ago. Two lapas (homesteads) contain exhibits that explain much of the Bakone’s history.
