Sangoma Appointment - Late Afternoon

Please book in the morning-at our current Rate. We do have a Sangoma - Herbalist in the village. This is for people who are genuinely interested in finding out about Traditional healers. The Bones are thrown and the Sangoma discusses health, travel and well-being of the visitor. You have to ask the questions that you are interested in e.g. health, travel family etc. You have to read between the lines and the answers are often symbolic. Most of the time only the genuinely interested people will get a good response. Other Visitors can be disappointed, but it is up to you to ask as many questions as possible. If you are not happy with his consultation - please tell Pitso and Nkopane
