  • This was a nice place to visit in get souvenirs with the kids. I typically don't like the tactics of these type of market places where they learn you in I'm have you look at everything and then pressure you into buying something. Quite frankly after being there half hour I did not want to be there. I wish they were more delicate and how they approached you but that's what you get when you go to a market like this.
  • Chameleon Village is a very big flea market at Hartbeesport dam. It is full of entertainment, cultural events and arts for local community and for tourists too. It is full of nice Restaurants for local, Indian and for tourists people. It is covered with mountain and has a great view from distance. it opens 7 days in week from 9 AM to 5 PM. I like there Coffee shop where you can sit outside and chat with friends.
  • Tourist paradise. North-Wes. Hartbeespoortdam. South Africa. Chameleon village boost about 100 stores. Featuring local art, clothing, African art and painting plus plus. A restaurant, pub are conveniently situated in the centre. Bored. Visit the lion park. Plus have your picture taken with them. Proudly South African
  • Done and dusted! Some chop are realy awesome but some are overload with stuff. But...over all a good vibe.
  • Huge variety of African art. But you are spoken to by literally EVERY SINGLE store owner. Browsing in peace is something that is not possible. I would describe it close to harassment.
