Shakaland Zulu Village and Surrounds

The surroundings of Shakaland Zulu village are idyllic. The hills to its east offer a splendid view over the Mhlatuze Valley, where Shaka’s military stronghold, KwaBulawayo, once stood. Today there is virtually nothing left of the 19th-century citadel that commanded so much of this Southern African region.

Below Shakaland is Goedertrou Dam, on which you can take a spectacular sunset boat cruise.
