This half-day Durban tour takes you on a 35-minute drive into the picturesque Valley of 1000 Hills. Feel the rhythm of Africa at the PheZulu Cultural Village with the lively Zulu dancing show. Learn about Africa's snakes and crocodiles.
The tour leaves Durban heading inland to the ‘Valley of 1000 Hills’ to experience traditional Zulu culture at PheZulu Cultural Village and Reptile Park. Visitors are taken into a traditional Zulu homestead to experience what traditional Zulu life was like before the modern era. Traditionally, Zulu domed, thatched huts are placed in a circular position, with the cattle placed in the centre as a form of protection. At PheZulu’s ‘Sibaya’ or homestead the thatched huts are surrounding the auditorium which faces the beautiful ‘Valley of 1000 Hills’. The local PheZulu guide will take you on a guided tour of the PheZulu sibaya and describe Zulu cultural practices to gain insight into Zulu traditions during the 1800’s. The local Zulu dancing show is energetic and hugely entertaining with the local performers singing beautiful, traditional Zulu songs and dancing energetically. The performers wear their traditional Zulu attire, showing off their dancing and singing skills with rhythmic agility and pride.
Included in PheZulu is the Reptile Park where guests are introduced to crocodiles, snakes and other reptiles by a local PheZulu Reptile park guide. The local guides are very knowledgeable and eager to take you around the park and share interesting facts about the animals in the park. PheZulu Reptile Park has diverse reptilian wildlife on site which include crocodiles, alligators, snakes, tortoises, spiders and iguanas. Under supervision you can touch or hold some of the animals including a small crocodile and the giant Burmese python, just long enough to take a photograph.
