About Visit a Zulu Hut

On the grounds of the Voortrekker Monument and Nature Reserve stands a tribal replica of a medium sized Zulu Hut. The Zulus are a native South African tribe who traditionally live in beehive shaped dwellings constructed by the men of the tribe.

These huts are called 'indlu' individually and together make up a cultural village, typical of Zululand. Poles from sapling are placed in a circle, bent inwards and fastened together to form the frame. This basic framework is thatched with grass for a roof.

A cow-dung and anthill mixture forms the floor which once set is covered with cattle-fat. King Dingane, the late Zulu leader (1828 - 1840), had the Royal Capital of Umgungundlovu constructed during his reign, these huts are typical of the cultural region. King Dingane led many conflicts against the Afrikaaner Voortrekkers involving the Zulus in significant South African historical battles.
