Inyanga with visitors

This is their country and we give you an insight into contemporary Zulu life. This laid back tour is a great leveler 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 and his family and enjoy supper as the sun is setting over the Eshowe hills with cows lowing in the kraal and Southern Cross high in the sky. You will be surprised at how well you rest when there are no electric lights to disrupt your sleep.

More modern Zulu Kraal

Wake up to the sounds of cocks crowing, cows mooing and goats bleating 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 and watch old ladies doing crafts, children doing daily chores, women working the vegetable gardens and children learning at Ntenjane School.
