Isithumba Day Tour

Isithumba Day Tour

Situated some 45min outside of the vibrant city of Durban is a place of peace and tranquility, the village of Isithumba. This is not a “show” village, this is a real working village, with people going about their daily lives; only we’ve been invited to experience a little piece of their lives.

The tour is a walking tour, lasting about 90 min (light activity). We’ll get to meet the actual Chief/Headman of the village, as well as the Sangoma (traditional healer). We’ll also get to walk down the river, a place of huge importance to the Zulu people, where young boys traditionally met their wives to be.

After the village of Isithumba, we’ll head back into the nearby town of Botha’s Hill to a local restaurant for a hearty lunch, followed by a visit to the PheZulu for a wonderful display of Zulu dancing!

Finally (time permitting) we travel to the Hillcrest AIDS center and have a look at the wonderful work being done by this not-for-profit organisation as they look to enrich the lives of those previsouly disadvantaged.
