Hi Thoko. Where does your Zulu culture tour take us?
To a village called Maphepetheni in an area called the Valley of a Thousand Hills. You will fall in love with it. It’s not staged in any way; people are living 100% authentic lives. When we make friends, support the locals and are respectful, the people are very happy. They’ll cook for you, sing for you, and recite poetry for you. I’m excited to share these stories and my roots.
What does it mean to be Zulu?
There are no people as warm as the Zulu people in the whole world. We’re brave people — warriors — and we love our culture. Come sit down with us! There are some 11 million Zulu-speaking people across South Africa, with most of them in KwaZulu-Natal — which means ‘the place of the Zulus’.
