Shakaland offers a wonderful insight into the Zulus' former traditional way of life; one should visit the open-air museum "Shakaland" near Eshowe. It is the oldest "Zulu Cultural Village" in Zululand. Shakaland represents the kraal of Senzangakhona. He was the father of legendary Zulu King Shaka, who conquered the various clans and tribes in Zululand and founded the Zulu nation by uniting them.

Visitors can - by appointment - take part in a guided tour of the Zulu village, where Chief Malinga and his family live. The traditional "Umuzi" consists of several Zulu round-huts building a circle around the cattle kraal. During the tour the social system and the way of life of the Zulus explained, their rites and customs and the meaning of their clothes and ornaments. Their fighting technique and various crafts are being demonstrated. Afterwards one can taste the Zulu beer and join in a traditional meal.

The sights, sounds and smells are all real. The village is situated just a few miles from the site of Shaka’s military kraal Kwabulawayo. Some of the best dancers, warriors and craftsmen work here.

The A-Z of traditional Zulu life, packed into one exhilarating day. We make our way up the lush KwaZulu-Natal north coast, through sugarcane fields and into the tropical beauty of Zululand and the nKwalini Valley. Atop a hill overlooking the uMhlatusi River, Shaka's birthplace, stands the largest Zulu kraal in all of Zululand. It was built on the set of the film Shaka Zulu and far from lying dormant; today it's a very much alive museum. Here you'll learn all about the culture and traditions of Zulus and witness the skill and artistry that goes into building their huts, making pottery, brewing beer and crafting bead-work and baskets. Sample the unusual beer, visit the isangoma (witchdoctor), enjoy the grace and energy of the Zulu dancers and then tuck into a delicious lunchtime feast.
