Description

Gain insights into the culture and customs of the Zulu people with a day in Shakaland, a living tribute to traditional Zulu life. As you discover the village, witness the building of a hut, peruse time-honored handicrafts, sample Zulu beer, and marvel at the rhythmic energy of war dancers.

After your guide picks you up from your hotel, leave Durban behind and travel up the lush KwaZulu-Natal coast to Shakaland, perched on a hill overlooking a verdant river valley. As you enter the village, a replica of a traditional Zulu kraal, you step into a living museum that offers a glimpse into a rich cultural heritage.

While you wander among the thatched huts, pause at one to see the building process in action, and watch artisans as they work skillfully to fashion weapons, baskets, and stunning wares. Stop in to meet the village witchdoctor, known as an isangoma, to learn about ancient healing methods, and witness the mesmerizing grace of Zulu war dances. Round out the day with a lunch feast of typical dishes, paired with the unusual flavors of Zulu beer, before making the journey back to Durban.
