Thohoyandou is a bustling town with a hive of activity with fruit markets, street vendors, a lively atmosphere and a fair number of students who attend the University of Venda. This is the land of lush vegetation, coffee and tea plantations, acres of subtropical fruit, tobacco and maize fields with neat little rural villages that litter the landscape. The homes are made in a time-old tradition that involve low encircling decorated walls.
