Shakaland Tour

Shakaland, known as ‘the greatest Zulu experience in Africa’, is an authentic replication of a Zulu ‘Umuzi’ or homestead. This enjoyable, full day tour includes an opportunity to sample traditional Zulu beer, marvel at the energy and rhythm of the Zulu dancers, observe the building of a Zulu hut, and appreciate the artistry of fashioning traditional weapons and crafts.

The day also includes a visit to a traditional healer – an iSangoma The job of an iSangoma is to treat individual illnesses and maintain the health of the community. Many Zulu believe that the iSangoma receives messages from spirits and can use this communication to aid others. Almost all iSangoma are women.

  • The organisation and communication were first class. The flexibility in travelling to the destination was impressive and the hotels where we stayed  in were all of a good standard. Our Coach was driven by Ken, who was a character and nothing was too much for him.

  • We both enjoyed the Magnificent New Zealand holiday immensely. The Coach Driver/Tour Guide was excellent and the hotels were really comfortable. The holiday was extremely good value and I would recommend it to anyone waning to taste the Antipodean holiday experience.
