Peering back in the ages you will find that the largest ethnic group in South Africa, the Zulu people, played a major role in shaping South Africa into the beautiful, multicultural and diverse country that it is today.
The Zulu’s have a rich and involved cultural background with deeply ingrained traditions, which are as relevant today as they were hundred’s of years ago.
Initially, the cultural village of Shakaland was built as a film set for the epic blockbuster serial “Shaka Zulu” and has since been used as a cultural village to give visitors a keen insight into one of the most colourful and endearing people of Southern Africa.
The Great Kraal, overlooking the Phobane Lake, is where you will find yourself immersed in the pulsating magical rhythm of Africa, reliving the days long since passed. The infamous Shakaland, is nestled on the top of the Entombeni Hills, situated in the heart of Zululand between Eshowe and Melmoth.
Can you imagine the excitement coursing through your veins as you experience the sight of the primal assegaai-wielding warriors; share in the fascinating secrets of the elusive and mysterious Sangomas and bear witness to traditional Zulu customs such as tribal dancing, spear making and beer-drinking ceremonies.
Your evenings are spent in one of Shakalands traditional beehive huts, surrounded by the vast African skies.
Shakaland is more than just a tourist attraction – it is an enriching experience affording a better understanding of the Zulu nation, its people and their intriguing customs.
