Heaven On Earth in Africa's Zululand
Extending from the blue waters of the Indian Ocean to the foothills of the Drakensberg Range, Zululand is as rich in history and culture as it is in wildlife at home in its diverse habitats. Once you discover the lush green hills, the long waving grasslands, and abundant forests which approach beautiful Indian Ocean beaches, you may appreciate the ferocity with which the Zulu (or ‘people of heaven’) defended this space against the British and Boer settlers in the late nineteenth century Zulu wars. Visit the Battlefields, set amid spectacular topography, and the site of one of the greatest military disasters in British history. On safari, enjoy reserves home to the Big Five, and many species of birds. And, meet today’s Zulu people, whose powerful culture may be experienced today through storytelling and praise-poems, and traditional song and dance.
