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!

Testimonials

  • I went on the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve Overnight Tour with Shelldon, a fantastic guide! Not only he was very knowledgeable about SouthAfrica, the Zulu history, the animals and being very friendly, he made sure that the tour was tailored to my expectations (i.e. I really wanted to see the elephants, so we kept on driving until we did !!): couldn’t ask for a better guide! Thank you Shelldon!

  • Shelldon was our guide for the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve two night tour and tour of the markets in Durban. We ended up calling and scheduling our tour last minute, but they worked with our odd schedule and promptly (within one hour) called us back and had all details worked out. Throughout the tour, all scheduling and paperwork (at game park, cat sanctuary, river cruise) was taken care of so we could just enjoy everything. Shelldon is the best guide I have ever had. He was professional, friendly, and so knowledgable on history, culture, wildlife, and literally everything. He clearly loves what he does and made this an amazing experience. If debating either what to do while in South Africa, or what company to go with for tours… chose a tour with Shelldon and Country and Coastal Touring.

  • Amazing adventures. We have found Country & Coastal Touring on website opinion as a very good tour operator. Now we recommend this trip to everybody. Our guide Sheldon Wells was very professional, eager to answer our question, but first of all he had a big knowledge about nature and animals. He was on time in the hotel. 8 hours trip gave us wonderful memories and beautiful fotos. Thank you C&CT.
