At the Opening Gala Dinner, we will also be entertained by Womba Womba, a vibrant ensemble of talented musicians whose music is a mixture of tribal jazz and traditional sounds. We'll have the opportunity to participate and cheer along or just opt to listen to traditional tribal jazz at its best while we experience a little of the spirit of Africa. A wonderful opening to our time together in Johannesburg!
