This is the cradle of South Africa’s democracy and home to a vibrant semi-rural community living across green hills and valleys. Meet friendly locals, experience Zulu culture and know that the income from your visit changes lives for the better.
After a visit to the Wow Zulu Markeplace you drive into the hills of Umzinyathi above Inanda, to the picturesque rural homestead of master Craftsman Eunice Mtshali. Learn the ancient craft of bead-work and create you own Zulu love letter in beads, while your guide introduces you to the rich Zulu culture.
Later you visit the modest township home of artist Caesar Mkhize, whose quirky, beaded animal sculptures are in demand around the globe. Sing along as the Mkhize family entertain you to music. At the nearby Esikhumulweni Cooperative, watch as members create designer items from recycled Toyota seat covers into designer products. Then stop for lunch at Fashion Café, a street-side café that proudly serves “the best tramezzini” in Durban as well as everything from burgers to traditional Shisa Nyama [meat grilled on an open fire]. Lunch is for own account.
If you have time when you return to the Wow Zulu Marketplace, visit the home and grave of JL Dube, first president of the ANC, and find out why Nelson Mandela chose to vote in this special place.
Enjoy this unique adventure as you immerse yourself in the great culture of the Zulu nation.
