Half Day Valley of 1000 Hills

From: R925.00

This is a tour of complete scenery, culture and game all rolled into one tour. Drive through the western Durban suburbs on the picturesque countryside of the Valley of a Thousand Hills. Visit a reconstructed Zulu village where you will be taken into traditional beehive shaped thatched huts, where the various artefacts, beliefs and rituals are explained, providing insight into the fascinating Zulu culture. Following the impressive Zulu dancing show, enjoy a guided tour of the Crocodile and Snake Park.

The breath-taking Valley of a Thousand Hills is an exciting component of Durban and South Africa’s province of KwaZulu Natal. The area promises unspoilt nature, wildlife, magnificent scenery, and warm country hospitality just a half hour’s drive from the centre of Durban. The area is named after the thousands of hills which tumble down to the mighty Umgeni River, which flows from the distant Drakensberg Mountains to the warm inviting Indian Ocean.

Depart Durban for your journey inland and toward Pietermaritzburg to the Valley of a Thousand Hills. As you travel through this scenic landscape, you will notice that on the crest of the hills overlooking the valley are leafy suburbs and village centres, which have astonishing views and a year-round holiday climate of warm summers and cool winters. Many local Zulu people have maintained a traditional lifestyle in the Umgeni and Shongweni Valleys, giving the area a powerful sense of history and identity. Their colourful ceremonies and expressive, artistic culture give this area its vibrant atmosphere and creative energy. Explore the roots of Zulu culture by embarking on a guided tour deep into tribal lands. Witness ancient Zulu ceremonies as traditional diviners ‘throw the bones’ and communicate with their spiritual ancestors at pheZulu Safari Park. PheZulu also offers traditional Zulu dancing and cultural shows.  Also, embark on the park’s tour at the Crocodile & Snake Park which boasts wonderful views across the valley.
