As the largest ethnic group in South Africa, the Zulu people have played a major role in shaping South Africa into the country it is today. The Zulu’s have a rich cultural background with ingrained traditions as relevant today as they were hundred’s of years ago!

The cultural village of Shakaland was built as a film set for the blockbuster TV serial “Shaka Zulu” and has since been used as a cultural village to give visitors an insight into one of the most endearing people of Southern Africa.

Visitors on the Shakaland Zulu Culture Tours will get to enjoy a tour of a traditional “umuzi” (homestead) as well as visit the Sangoma and Inyanga. There’s a Zulu dance which is considered to be the finest in South Africa to look forward to as well as a fantastic buffet lunch, eaten only with the approval of the Zulu chief!

Shelldon allowed me to book my parents trip via email from London with ease and confidence. He was thorough in his description of trips and suggested hotels and even picked them up from the airport instead of the hotel. Payment was made easy with paypal….

Best guide possible. Shelldon is very knowledgeable not only about animals but also about the history of the area. He is very friendly and we can tell he enjoys his job.

Charles was our guide to shakaland and he was very patient and answered our many questions. We also visit a forest and he was able to idntify many of the different birds and plants we saw. Highly recommend him.

  • 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.
