About Shakaland Hotel

Situated just 160km north of the city of Durban is a living monument to Zulu culture. It is from here that people from all over the world come to experience the lifestyles, social systems and rich culture of the Zulu nation.

A visit to South Africa is not complete without a visit to Shakaland – one of the most famous cultural attractions in Africa.

A traditional Zulu “Umuzi” or homestead, divides the homes of the local Zulu people and the hotel rooms. This South African Zulu village offers a comprehensive Zulu experience, from foot-stomping tribal dancing by assegai-wielding warriors in traditional animal skins to consultations with a sangoma (spiritual leader believed to have the ability to communicate with the ancestors) and an inyanga (traditional herbalist).


This cultural village is a unique resort built amid thorn trees and aloes, comprising a traditional Zulu “Umuzi” or homestead, where the Zulu people reside as well as a separate area consisting of 55 hotel rooms. This unique village was built and developed on the site of a film set, when the movies King Shaka and John Ross were produced.

In keeping with the pastoral surrounds, Shakaland accommodation features authentic African decor, complete with wooden interiors, thatched roofs and a warm, earthy ambience. Stay in first-class accommodation in traditional beehive huts which offer all mod-cons such as en-suite bathrooms to provide a comfortable and luxurious stay.


It’s a worthwhile addition to any South African itinerary offering a variety of cultural experiences both for leisure travelers, tourists, conferences and students.

Shakaland is more than just a tourist attraction – it is an enriching experience affording a better understanding of the Zulu nation, its people and their intriguing customs.
