Trip Summary

The private Shakaland Experience is a tour that delves into the background behind one of the most influential Kings in the Zulu legacy, King Shaka. At the specially created traditional Zulu village at Shakaland, we’ve laid on some traditional Zulu beer for you to sample while the craftsmen and community who make the spears, shields, bead work, pots and huts, open their doors so you can witness their skills and artistry.

Experience traditional Zulu culture and customs at the largest Zulu kraal in all of Zululand, packed into one exhilarating day. Sample some traditional Zulu beer. Enjoy the grace and energy of the Zulu dancers. Witness the skill and artistry that goes into spear, shield, beadwork, pot making and the building of their huts. Visit an iSangoma (Traditional Healer). A delicious lunchtime feast is included.

Come live a day in the life of a traditional community – you’ll find it informative and a far cry from anything you’ve ever experienced!
