Phezulu Cultural Village and Reptile Park Tour from Durban

Discover the incredible heritage of South Africa's Zulu people with a visit to Phezulu Cultural Village and Reptile Park. Depart Durban for KwaZulu-Natal's stunning Valley of 1000 Hills, where many Zulu people still reside. The park itself is known for its traditional beehive-shaped huts and hands-on experiences like Zulu spear making. Witness a colorful Zulu dance performance, then embark on an informative tour of the park's reptile portion where you'll learn first-hand about resident crocodiles and snakes, including the notorious green mamba.

What to Expect

The tour leaves Durban and travels to the Valley of 1000 Hills, home of PheZulu Cultural and Safari Park. Visitors are taken into traditional beehive shaped thatched huts, where the various artefacts, beliefs and rituals of the Zulu people are explained, giving visitors an insight into the fascinating Zulu culture. The Zulu dancing show (50 minutes) is impressive with the dancers in their traditional garb, showing off their skills with grace, agility and humour.

PheZulu also has a Crocodile and Snake park where guests will be taken on a guided tour by a knowledgeable local guide. They will learn interesting facts about crocodiles and snakes and have a hands-on experience with Cleo the Burmese python who weighs in at 42 kilograms.

Very friendly people but too contrived for us.

We visited this attraction on a tour from our cruise ship. The scenery of the valley (once the mist lifted) is worth the trip. Because of the large numbers of visitors we were split into groups to shop first, see the dancing, visit the crocodiles...More
