Eshowe Hotels: 2 reviews and 6 photos
If you like to experience Africa this is the hotel to go to.
Shakaland is a traditional Zulu "Umuzi" or homestead, divided into the home of the Zulu`s and hotel rooms. A unique resort built on the set of the movies, Shaka Zulu and John Ross.
Unique Qualities: The insights of the Zulu culture is great here. The original film sets for the movie Shaka Zulu from the 1980's are still used today and some of the cast of that movie show you all aspects of Zulu culture. Beer making, and drinking (!), Speer fighting, Zulu dancing and the spiritual sight with the herbalist iSangoma and the Witch Doctor. And all this you experience with First Class accommodation both western and Zulu cuisine.
A great experience!
