We were wondering how going to a film set would turn out but it was a great mixture of 1850s Zululand and modern day hotel. We were escorted in and about by ethnic performers that gave us a feel for the times and customs

Most definitely! For the last two years, I have visited Shakaland and enjoyed the tour through the Zulu village. And I highly recommend staying for the traditional Zulu luncheon, featuring many delicious native dishes.
