    • Liked: Staff & service
    • Disliked: Cleanliness, room comfort

    The condition, the food, the shop, the comfort - it all went downhill in the last few years. The only thing that went up has been prices. I’ve been visiting Shakaland every year since 2010. I wont anymore.

    It was very good value for money and the meals were all included in the price. Mr Gabrial the manger and staff went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant.

    Fab! Fab! Fab! Shakaland!

    We and our relatives, a young couple from Austria, enjoyed a fabulous sojourn at Shakaland last weekend, 02/03 March 2019. The people were, without exception, genuinely friendly and helpful. The accommodation was more than adequate and the food was African style par excellence. Very enjoyable. The young ones were so impressed by the cultural side of the programmes, they did not want to leave, begged to stay for a week. But alas, it could not be. Thank you Shakaland for making an unforgettable weekend for us in paradise!

    Great experience if you want to learn about the Zulu culture. Lovely food and very helpful and friendly staff. Third time I have been here over more than a decade and still recommend it. Give yourself enough travel time and worth paying the extra money to take to Toll roads. Don't speed and look out for cows on the road when off the tolls, this is the heartland of the Zulu Kingdom :)
