    Relive the history of King Shaka, King of the Zulus, during this enriching visit to the tribal village of Shakaland.


    Journey through Empangeni en route to Shakaland, the location where the movie Shaka Zulu was filmed. Upon arrival, you’ll meet your Zulu guide and share welcome refreshments before being invited to relive the momentous and turbulent days of King Shaka, a revered early 19th-century Zulu ruler. During your walking tour through the Zulu village, see a variety of displays, including women doing beadwork, weaving mats, sculpting pottery, baking bread and brewing beer. You’ll also watch the men make a spear and shield as well as build a beehive-style grass hut.


    Enter the chief’s hut to observe Zulu dancers performing rapturous rhythmic drum dances and witness a ritual done by the traditional healer, or sangoma, followed by a short audio-visual presentation and some time at your leisure to browse the village’s enticing curio shops. Delight in a traditional Zulu buffet lunch at the Kwabonamanzi restaurant overlooking the Umhlatuze Lake, a satisfying finale to your fascinating outing.

    Discover a diverse collection of crocodiles and snakes at an intriguing reptile park.


    Take a leisurely 75-minute drive past unspoiled wetlands to Zulu Croc, an unusual reptile park that provides a hands-on experience amid an alluring landscape of savanna bushveld. You’ll find that here you can touch some of the world’s most fascinating creatures under the supervision of expert reptile handlers. Hand feed an iguana or pose for photos with a boa constrictor draped over your shoulders, if you wish, but simply observe the more dangerous and venomous creatures. Learn that Nile crocodiles can weigh up to 1,650 pounds and grow up to 20 feet long, a size they achieve by eating any appetizing morsel within their reach.


    Should you feel adventurous, stroke a baby croc while it’s being held and, if it’s feeding time, perhaps see adults leaping vertically out of the water to chomp chunks of raw meat. Take in myriad facts about snakes such as venomous puff adders, boomslangs and black mambas or the non-venomous carpet pythons and reticulated pythons, the world’s longest snakes. You’ll thrill to your up-close encounters with the fearsome yet magnificent residents of this enthralling park.
