A Zulu cultural experience is a must when visiting the Kingdom Of The Zulu. Shakaland provides the perfect experience for guests wanting to get a proper understanding and feel for Zulu culture and tradition.A half day tour of Durban City will give one a look into what makes this city tick. Visit landmarks such as The Moses Mabhida Stadium, The Presidents House, Suncoast Casino and Wilson's Warf. Included in this tour is a Harbor cruise or Skycar trip over the stadium.
