Full description
Start your tour at Pietermaritzburg, the capital of KwaZulu-Natal. Move on to the Mandela Capture Site, where Nelson Mandela was captured and sent into his incarceration. Head to Howick Falls, otherwise known as the place of the tall one. The waterfall is a 95 meter cascade into a broiling restless pool that the locals believe to be the place of the spirits of ancestor. To end the tour, visit the Valley of a Thousand Hills to experience and be mesmerized by the Zulu Culture and Zulu dancing at Phezulu Cultural Village and Reptile Park. Venture into traditional Zulu beehive–shaped thatched huts and learn about various artefacts, beliefs and rituals. Finish your tour with a visit to the Reptile Park where a qualified park guide will intrigue you with interesting facts about the resident crocodiles and snakes.

Min upplevelse var helt förträffligt! Ett speciellt tack till vår uppskattade Guide Sotiri som ställde upp i den regniga dagen tidigt på morgonen och körde oss till dessa historiska och oförglömliga platser. Vi kommer aldrig att glömma det. En seriös sajt och rekommenderas varmt. Jag är mycket nöjd.
