Visiting Phezulu Cultural Park
The Phezulu Cultural Village is a hidden gem located only 35 minutes from Durban. No trip to South Africa would be complete without a visit to this charming park. An experienced travel agent will make sure that you don’t miss any of the sights and sounds of this stunning park in the Valley of 1000 Hills.
At the Phezulu Cultural Village the Gasa clan, who have generously opened their homes and lives to visitors for over 35 years, will teach you about their lives and traditions. You will get to go into their thatched huts which are made the same way their ancestors made theirs. Inside, you will hear their stories and beliefs and see how the Zulu people live. You will also be given an opportunity to make your own sword and shield, just like the Zulu have done for generations. While they no longer use the swords and shields in battle, they still perform vital functions as parts of wedding and funeral ceremonies. And of course, no trip would be complete without the dancing. You will get a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Gasa clan perform traditional Zulu dances. Their skill, strength, and beautiful costumes will take your breath away.
The nearby Boma restaurant offers delicious and unusual Zulu cuisine. You can enjoy a crocodile burger as you admire the view of the Valley of 1000 Hills and Phezulu Game Preserve. As you enjoy your meal you will be able to watch the beautiful wildlife and hear the soft drumming of your Zulu hosts. Don’t miss the chance to enjoy this unique experience.
At the Curio Shop you can bring a little piece of South Africa home with you. The shop specializes in stone and wood carvings, as well as prints and paintings. A souvenir from this beautiful country will help to motivate and inspire you and let you keep a piece of your trip with you always.
Even though life in South Africa is changing, the Zulu still value their traditional beliefs and customs and they welcome the opportunity to share them with you. The Zulu are the largest ethnic group in South Africa and no trip to this country would be complete without visiting the people from KwaZulu Natal.
The best way to get the most out of your trip is to hire a local guide. They will make sure you get to see the best views, have the freshest local foods, and have the safest and easiest trip imaginable. With a local guide you don’t have to worry about a thing. All the hard work is done for you. Never worry about transportation, being on time for events, or what to do next. You can just sit back, relax, and enjoy the trip of your life.
You deserve to make the most of your experience, and a personal travel agent and guide can help ensure that. The entire experience will be designed around your interests and your tastes. When you don’t have to worry about the details you can just enjoy yourself and make the memories that will last a lifetime.
