After a buffet lunch, we were introduced to a fierce looking Zulu warrior
(see picture), taught a Zulu greeting, and then taken on a guided tour
of the kraal (village). We saw traditional crafts such as making
spears and pots, a witchdoctor and costumes (or lack of them) that signified
whether a woman was married, engaged or single.
We were then seated for an impressive display of althletic dancing, which
was most entertaining. During this, we had a chance to sample Zulu beer
- which was rather an acquired taste.
Although we enjoyed the visit, we felt it was rather artificial (especially
compared to our visit to a village in Lesotho)
and would have preferred a rather more accurate picture of how traditional
values affect modern living for Zulus.
