We had a wonderful time with Zamani, our guide to Shakaland. In our way to the main object of the trip we stopped at a beatiful forest and we were able to visit it from a nice wooden bridge that served as a path inside the forest. Zamani explained us the story of the forest and told us the name of the trees and plants. Then we left for Shakaland, a wonderful traditional zulu village where we met the locals, we saw them dancing in the chief's hut and we tasted the famous zulu beer. In our way back we stopped in a small city close to Durban where we visited the stone and the grave where King Shaka was assassinated. Inside the museum we watched a short movie about Shaka's life and we learned more about the zulu's history.

All day long Zamani was besides us and told us the interesting zulu history from the time Shaka was born until he was killed and Dingane took the rule of the kingdom.
The trip was a very nice experince with our guide Zamani that has zulu roots.

We had an excellent trip to Hluhluwe-Imfolozi game reserve yesterday. We saw a brilliant amount of animals for a day safari, including lots of up close rhinos. Zamani our tour guide was excellent, really passionate, friendly and helpful. We hadn't seen many elephants so he continued the tour for a little longer, and we dad actually see some.
Highly recommended

I've been in many places in Africa, and done many tour all around South-africa and southern-africa, this compagny is the best. The tour guide Zamani is passionate by his work and is enjoying what is doing. He's sharing his passion and love for is country with you and can reply to every question you have. I did hluhluwe twice with him, and Shakaland, phezulu village and others tours and i enjoyed every of them.
I can warmly recommand AFRO ZULU tours as the best tour compagny in Durban. And if you feel like going somewhere out of the main touristics attractions you can always ask him, the guide took me to the township of Umlazi for enjoyin a shisa-nyama (BBQ) i a very local place, without any tourist and it's was such a great experience!
My next time in Durban i will defenitly go again on tour with AFRO ZULU!
Thank you to AFRO ZULU n Cheers from switzerland!
