What you can expect

Relive the traditional life from the days of Shaka and the Zulu Kingdom at a romantic, historical retreat surrounded by the lush South African countryside. Complete with iconic décor, dance, and dining, a visit to Shakaland lets you experience the excitement and living traditions first hand.

Your personal guide picks you up in the morning for the ride from your hotel into the hills of the Natal Midlands, where Shakaland has built its living showcase of Zulu culture. Sheltered in the leafy Nkwalini Valley, this collection of thatched-roof houses and earthy aesthetics uses traditional Zulu design to create a vibrant setting for you to explore.

Once you arrive, you're introduced to a programme filled with activities and insights drawn from countless generations of heritage. Try your hand at spear making, pottery, or building a Zulu hut, and then you can feast on a buffet of the region's favourite meals and enjoy the local beer. Watch a dazzling performance of song and dance before you leave the lively setting behind for your return to Durban.
