The heart and soul of Zululand in KwaZulu-Natal with a private guide


The legend of King Shaka is explored in this day tour to Shakaland on the east coast of South Africa. Situated within 2 hours of Durban (or 1 hour from Richards Bay), Shakaland is a "must visit" site visitors to South Africa.

The center features a traditional Zulu village and takes visitors on a unique journey of Zulu heritage and culture.

Guests can experience at first hand the traditional techniques of assagay (spear) making, beer brewing (yes, you get to taste) and traditional foods. Also on the cards is a visit to the traditional healers and Sangomas.

And as an added bonus, the local Zulu people will put a show on that has to be seen to be believed!

A Recent Review of this tour

Day 2 with Shelldon was quit different as we were driving 1.5 hours to Shakaland, a former TV set build for a series about the Zulus which is very interesting in terms of explaining life among the Zulus. During drive we saw gorgeous green farmlands and also evidence of industry in outlying areas. Drive went quickly as Shelldon gave us the history of the Zulu - still SA's predominant inhabitants. A history lesson combined with touring Shakaland were so much more impactful and we owe it all to Shelldon!
