The Tradition of TladiAccording to the ancient traditions of the Sotho people of Gauteng, Tladi is the African equivalent of the Thunderbird, the bringer of lightning. The "Milky Way" known as molala-tladi, is "the roosting place of the tladi bird" and in Sotho belief, the molala-tladi "supports the sky, preventing it from falling on the earth." (Vanishing Cultures of Africa).
"Kuphumla Nathi"This is an isiXhosa phrase that means 'with us you are going to rest', which is epitomized by the country atmosphere, very close to Sandton CBD, so appreciated by our guests.
