Traditional Zulu Ceremonies

These ceremonies take place on weekends. Your Zulu English speaking guide will be Gugu Mhlongo.  You need to have transport. Take good walking shoes, a hat, sunscreen and water. These events are out in the open countryside. The main Ceremonies are: Memelo (Coming of Age), Mkhehlo and Membeso (Pre-Wedding ) and Mshado ( Wedding ) which are help over weekends.

We have the privilege of being invited to these ceremonies on a regular basis. Because of our strong relationship and links with the communities, our network identifies many ceremonies  on weekends.

These traditional Zulu Ceremonies take place in the rural Zululand countryside. We drive out into the Zululand hills in search of a ceremony that we have been invited to over old dirt tracks and hills. This makes for a great adventure and as we eventually check out other guests winding their way over the hills in a common direction. You can never be too early or late – this is Zulu time at its best.

Zulu Culture insists that anyone and everyone come and witness their  Ceremonies. The evenings festivities will be for the families concerned.
