Face to Face With the Zulu People


This is a Community Development based Tour

The tour includes a traditional  Zulu Meal.

This tour starts at 10:30am and returns to Durban around 15h30pm. The day is as flexible as the people we meet. As the day unfolds we are heading west towards the well-known area of the Valley of a 1000 Hills.

At this point it is an opportunity to fill up with refreshments and visit the toilet while the rest of the group takes in the spectacular view of the Valley of 1000 Hills. The guide will present many opportunities for some stunning photographs of these majestic valleys with the beautiful Inanda Dam nestled in between the valley.

The Local Community Guide will explain to you the history of the Zulu Culture, Traditions of the Village.

Guests are encouraged to ask as many questions as possible and to be interactive as the people we meet are equally interested in wanting to know more about western culture. It is not our ecotourism policy to pre-arrange spectacles for tourists and therefore a real day, in the life of a 21st century Zulu Village, unfolds before you. The level of participation by you could make this an excellent experience as there are over 900 households. On occasions one might take part in a traditional Zulu dancing together with the dancers, visit a “Sangoma; {spiritual healer}. The Village children are always eager to share their experiences with guests. Daily life involves tending livestock, gathering water for the houses and tending to crops. The aim of the tour is to afford guests the opportunity to talk directly to the people and experience the Zulu culture in a way that very few will. The questions are yours to ask and the day is yours to learn.

The focus of the tour is the people, but not to lose sight of where we are, The Valley of a 1000 Hills is spectacular. Large gorges and literally thousands of hills dotted with traditional Zulu villages makes for a beautiful sundowner photograph as the Umgeni river winds it’s way through the valleys.

A delicious traditional vegetarian Zulu meal will be prepared at the homestead for you to enjoy. The warmth and hospitality of the people is ever present and great experiences had. At the end of the tour you will have experienced Zulu culture the way it is and not the way your average tourist sees it. GUESTS CAN EXTEND TO A OVERNIGHT OPTION
