ZULULAND – HOME OF THE ZULU NATION
The Babanango area is a centre of agriculture and known for its wild places. The name Babanango translates as ‘Father, there it is’. This refers to the high hill which is a local landmark. Another local landmark is the mighty White Umfolozi River, which carves its way through the landscape.
With its subtropical climate, Zululand is a fantastic year-round destination which has cultural attractions, historic sites and natural beauty.
With its green hills, waving grasslands, verdant forests and unhurried lifestyle, Zululand is a place steeped in symbolism and tradition. The age-old Zulu culture remains today with its warm hospitality and vibrant and energetic ceremonies.
The Voortrekker-Zulu conflicts, Anglo-Zulu War of 1879 and First and Second Anglo-Boer Wars of 1880-1881 and 1899-1902 respectively have left battlefields, landmarks and graves all over KwaZulu-Natal. Zululand is home to some of the most iconic of these.
Guided tours of these places bring to life these conflicts which shaped the formation of South Africa as it is today.
