WWe hope you enjoyed meeting our Jozi Local, Charles Ncube, in last week’s episode and that you learnt more about the Soweto township vibe with Gregg! In the final episode tonight, Gregg heads to South Africa’s Valley of a Thousand Hills in KwaZulu-Natal.
He boards a helicopter and flies over Rorke’s Drift – the battle site where a small amount of British soldiers fought off 4,000 Zulu warriors 140 years ago.
His final stop is Isandlwana – the site of the first battle in the Anglo-Zulu war. Mphiwa, the ancestor of a Zulu warrior and local Battlefields Zulu guide, shares more insight into how the battle of Isandlwana unfolded.
TThe Zulu people represent South Africa’s largest tribe and our local culture junkie, Thoko Jili, introduces Gregg to the Zulu culture and takes him to a village in the heart of the Zulu Kingdom's Valley of a Thousand Hills, located just under an hour's drive from Durban. Gregg learns more about local traditions and enjoys some local delicacies for lunch.
Song and dance are at the heart of many Zulu traditions and it’s not long before Gregg dons on a Zulu Warrior outfit and joins in for some traditional celebrations!
