After having heard of the tavern tours many times, I finally had the privilege of going on a tour myself. We left excited per taxi from the Municipality buildings and was told by our security, Sam, that we were going to visit three of the most popular taverns in Kgubetswana
Our first stop was Tsamahantse, where we were greeted by friendly faces, a spotless environment and of course our first quart. I could feel my heart jumping to the rhythm of the music, filling the air of the heart of our beautiful township, and then we were off to experience more of the richness the community has to offer.
Zama-Zama has spectacular views of the Maluti Mountains accompanied perfectly with sounds echoing from the much-adored jukebox. We couldn’t have dreamt of a better way to end the tour than listening to the Stars of Kgubetswana at the busy Hunters Pub. The local band plays regularly at the taverns, and gave us memories to cherish with songs such as Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door and Michael Jackson’s We are the World.
The tours are an absolute treat and a must for one and all.
Kgubetswana has much entertainment on offer and we are very excited about the “Battle of the DJ’s” taking place on 2 November 2013.
