Explore the ancient cultures of the Zulu tribe in this authentic representation of a Zulu 'kraal'. Snuggled in the Entembeni Hills, Shakaland is an artist’s canvas of the vast bushland and the placid Pobane Lake. Stroll around the ‘Umuzi’, a circle of rounded-huts around the kraal. Join in the revelry as the Zulu people dressed in colourful attires, dance energetically to the pounding drum beats. Explore their diverse artistry and craftsmanship and bag some of the authentic items like pottery, beadwork, baskets and ornaments.
With vigorous tribal dances, traditional spear throwing and authentic craftworks, this trip to Shakaland in Zululand will make you appreciate the myriad cultures of South Africa.
