A taste of authenticity and a break away may be just what you need this Summer holiday!

Venture through the path less taken this festive season when you and your family embark on a rural tour of KwaZulu-Natal.

During your travels, you can expect to meet people who have inherited lands from their ancestors who have tended to KwaZulu-Natal’s fields since the beginning of time. These lands you explore will take you back to a time seemingly untouched by the modern world, where people go about their day-to-day lives free from the hustle and bustle of the city. Rural KwaZulu-Natal offers some of the most diverse landscapes and a vibrant heritage waiting for you to explore.

Places such as the Drakensberg Amphitheatre and the South Coast’s Ugu District offer various rural tours of the land whereby your presence and interaction with the locals directly contributes to the income of the area, which allows you to broaden your travel knowledge, all the while knowing you are making a difference in the lives of others.

The eMazizini Village sits within the heart of the Drakensberg Amphitheatre, and it is here where the WOWZULU team accompany you off the beaten track to allow you to enjoy an authentic rural experience. Here you can visit the Mazizi community, whose ancestors have lived in the eMazizini area for centuries. Look forward to meeting friendly locals, experiencing rural culture, and knowing that your visit and the income it generates change lives. Show your support by browsing and purchasing locally made crafts that combine traditional craft techniques with modern design at the WOWZULU marketplace within this village.

If you’re looking for an adventure, let your tour guide take you on a tractor ride through the Mazizi village, as they explain how the origins of the village date back to the days of King Shaka Zulu.

The rural landscape of KwaZulu-Natal is teeming with small, dotted towns. The locals of our rural area engage in farming, particularly sugar and wine grapes, livestock cultivation, forestry, and the tourism industry. During your tour of our natural forests and grasslands, please keep your eyes open for sightings of zebras, giraffes, antelope, and other diverse wildlife that call these lands their home.

This festive season is the perfect time for you to explore and venture onto the path less travelled when you visit the rural landscape of KwaZulu-Natal and engage with all we have to offer you.

From tractor-trailer experiences to interactive weaving classes, mountain biking and horse riding, KwaZulu-Natal offers various activities throughout our rural tours to keep you entertained throughout the summer!
