Isithumba Zulu Cultural Day Tour
Situated just 45 min west of Durban is the Zulu village of iSithumba. This rural Zulu village is one of th best places to experience Zulu culture in Durban. We also include a visit to PheZulu for the Zulu dance experience and kraal tour. Join our iSithumba Zulu Experience and Zulu Cultural Day Tour with us today.
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 Zulu 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 2 hours (medium 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!
