Shakaland was a fun and interesting place to visit. Yes obviously staged but fun nonetheless. They do dances and show you zulu culture. If you're after beaded Jewellery worth buying here. Very friendly and welcoming. Such a fun place.

When we arrived it was pretty hot and our rondevel hut was hot inside. The huge downside of staying the night is there is no Air Conditioning in the huts nor anyplace else and it was so hot we had trouble sleeping. On the other...More
