Workshops and Events

At Tlholego you can attend educational workshops, interesting events and / or stay in our simple but charming overnight accommodation, connecting with the Earth, with other guests, relaxing and letting go. You can also hire our facilities (learning, accommodation and grounds) for your own workshop / function. Please contact for more information.

In addition to learning, Tlholego has often been acknowledged for the richness of human interaction and relationships that can be experienced in one place. For the most part, workshops attract people from quite different cultural and ethnic backgrounds – from rural villages, farm-worker families and townships, government, academia as well as the global community.
