These traditional Zulu weddings and Zulu Maidens Coming of Age ceremonies take place in rural Zululand.We drive out into the Zululand hills in search of a ceremony that we have been invited to but don't quite know how to get to!!This makes for a great adventure as we eventually check out other guests winding there way over the hills in a common direction.You can never be too early or late.This is Zulu time at it's best.
Use your own vehicle if possible as this gives you flexibility to leave when you want to.Its a long day and we leave when the last person is ready!!.
We meet the families and watch on while the preparations and final arrangements are being sorted out.There is strict protocol to be observed by both families. The pre ceremony rituals and customs are all explained to you by your guide.
These are truly colourful and vibrant real life events set in an idyllic backdrop of the zulu countrside.
The Zulu are very enthusiastic about sharing their traditions with their neighbours and overseas visitors. Once you have been introduced you are regarded as one of the family and you will be surely transformed into a new world where sharing and generosity of spirit will overwhelm you. Vibrant colourful and joyous ceremony that will remain etched in your memory forever.
Each ceremony has it peculiarities and your Zulu guides will explain each part of the ceremony to you.
This is also a chance to meet ordinary South Africans in their environment to share lifes experiences and learn about real Zulu life as it is today.
