Experience real Zulu life in a rural Zululand traditional village. If you are travelling through our country and feel you have missed Africa, you are at the right place. Here you personally engage with local people during your walking tours through the rolling hills of Zululand right near King Shakas military stronghold where Zulu and King Shaka were born.
This is their country and we give you an insight into contemporary Zulu life. This laid back tour is a great leveller for anyone living in the first world. You meet fantastic people who have almost none of the material things that you possess but can show you things about life which you have probably forgotten. Meet Walter Cele's or Joe Mdluli's families and enjoy supper as the sun is setting over the Eshowe/Ntumeni hills with cows lowing in the Kraal.
Visit a Zulu School nearby at Ntenjane or Muntuyedwa. Interact with the children....play football during break and meet some teachers in the schoolgrounds.Of particular interest is the Cunina Orphanage where you can interact with the children and caregivers under the direction of Mrs Miss Lee Yimba. There is now a newly constructed Skills Centre where children are taught skills for their future.
On Thursday afternoon you can attend a Zionist church service. Wake up to the sounds of cocks crowing, cows mooing and goats bleeting in the hills around you. Go for a hike through the rolling hills and experience traditional Zulu life with knowledgeable hosts/guides. Hear about the first Zulu Martyr whose cross you can see from Walters home. Mrs Massishi Sibiya's family doing beadwork. Old ladies doing crafts, children doing daily chores, women working the vegetable gardens, Children learning at Ntenjane School.
If you want to visit a Potter or Sangoma you need to discuss this with Joe your Zulu Guide.
Enjoy a great meal with your host family before you go to sleep.
