I visited Shakaland recently with friends who were exploring the battlefields of the Zulu War of 1879. Shakaland not only provided a useful base for some of these sites but also gave us an insight into Zulu culture.
The individual hits were well appointed and comfortable although a little stuffy overnight.
The restaurant was comfortable with wonderful views over the lake below. The food was of a good standard from a daily changing buffet. The bar was fine albeit with a limited range of beverages.
Zulu dancing, spear throwing and beer making were just a few of the many cultural activities we indulged in coutesy of the in house entertainment team.
One nice feature was being awoken in the mornings by a guitar playing Zulu serenading us with traditional gentle songs - far more pleasant than an alarm call.
All staff were very friendly throughout our stay.More
