Full description
The full-day tour begins at the King Shaka Memorial, which is the site of his royal homestead and also the place where he was killed. Visit Shakaland, where you’ll have the opportunity to experience Zulu culture first hand, learning about the customs and social norms of Zulu life. Taste authentic Zulu beer, meet with traditional doctors, and experience an educational and entertaining Zulu dance show. Head into the Dlinza Forest Reserve after lunch. Admire the spectacular surroundings from a high, raised boardwalk that winds its way through the forest. Take a walk along the peaceful land trails as well.

What a wonderful and informative tour. Sotiris Spetsiotis from 1st Zulu Safaris was very informative and added value to the trip. The tour guide at the Zulu village was knowledgeable, engaging and easy to understand. The dancing was incredible. The lunch was tasty. Overall I had a very enjoyable time.
