Zululand Region Of KwaZulu Natal

Zululand Accommodation | Accommodation In Zululand Spanning north from the mighty Tugela River as far as the borders of Mozambique and Swaziland, lies the Zulu Kingdom (Zululand). This majestic and culturally rich region exhibiting lush green vegetation, hills neatly planted with rows of sugarcane and timber, unobtrusive homesteads and free roaming livestock was formerly ruled by the formidable King Shaka, and played host to major historical battles throughout the Anglo Zulu War. It was here where on the 4th July 1878, Lord Chelmsford defeated the Zulu at Ulundi. Today, Zululand remains home to the proud Zulu nation and local inhabitants live a somewhat agrarian lifestyle, many still subsistence farmers living from the land however a few interspersed towns and cities furnish the basic needs of the largely rural population.

The capital, Ulundi is a small town which honours fallen warriors through the Museums and statues that have been erected there. A statue of King Shaka stands between the Legislative Assembly and the Government Offices. The newly formed city of uMhlathuze, (assuming city status on the 21st August 2001 and comprising the original towns of Richards Bay, Empangeni, Esikhawini, Vulindlela, Felixton, Nseleni and Ngwelezane) boasts a number of museums and cultural centres such as the Empangeni Art And Cultural History Museum, Jabulani Crafts, Fort Nonqai, Vukani Museum, Cetshwayo's Death Place, KwaBulawayo II – The Site of King Shaka's Military Base and many more for visitors to peruse.

Upliftment through Cultural Tourism is on the increase throughout the region and a number of quaint shops and roadside stalls offer an array of traditional Zulu crafts and curios including wooden and soapstone carvings, mats and beadwork for sale – the handiwork is fast becoming very popular internationally.

A number of renowned Game parks, noted for their contribution to conservation both on a micro and international scale are located in Zululand. The famous Hluhluwe–Umfolozi Park has drawn attention through efforts made in saving the endangered white rhino. Other well known parks include Tembe Elephant Park, Ndumo, Itala, Pongola, Mkuze and several others. Many private game farms are also emerging making this region a nature lover’s paradise. Discover creatures great and small. Home to the Big Five it is a popular destination for those wishing to catch a glimpse of one of these majestic beasts. A vast number of bird species can also be found here and twitchers ‘flock’ to the area on a regular basis.
