  • Landscape of rural Zululand

Located in a malaria-free zone north of South Africa’s Dolphin Coast in KwaZulu-Natal, Zululand hosts some of Africa’s most traditional settlements and cultural sites to be experienced on a South Africa vacation. Known as the heart of the Zulu Kingdom, Zululand was that place where many tribes and clans came together to form a united kingdom that would go on to rule much of KwaZulu-Natal.

A place of contrasts, Zululand hosts modern lifestyles that often intersect with Zulu cultural villages that showcase traditional African heritage. The battlefields of Zululand have witnessed many of South Africa’s most significant clashes of the past 200 years that involved Voortrekker, British and Zulu forces.

Just as Zululand is rich in history, it is equally rich in nature and wildlife, perfect for a South Africa safaris. Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park is situated in the heart of Zululand and is the oldest protected game reserve in Africa. During the 1950s and 1960s it was home to Operation Rhino which worked tirelessly to boost white rhinoceros numbers. Zululand is famed for its bird-watching opportunities. With its varying landscapes and habitats, the region hosts around 500 species of birds, 58 of which are endemic to Southern Africa.

Visitors are encouraged to participate in the “Zululand Experience” on South Africa travel, fully immersing themselves in the culture, tradition and natural beauty that are on offer in one of South Africa’s most historic regions.
