is located in the Natal Central
area of the Natal
region in South Africa
Although Zululand actually extends across a much area, we have given the name to this relatively small patch of Central Natal since it contains most of the lodges which are specifically themed to provide a 'Zulu experience'.
Although there is a good deal of attractive scenery here, most visitors find themselves simply passing through when travelling between more obvious locations. Only those with a specific interest in Zulu culture choose to overnight.
But the sad truth is that the type of cultural interaction here is not very authentic, certainly when compared with similar experiences widely encountered in other countries to the north. That is not to demean the Zulu people or their traditions. The problem here is that most of the lodges are are too commercial or simply too poor to deliver a quality experience.
There is unfortunately no recommended accommodation in this area.
