Much more than just entertainment!


When the Zulu Mamas sing and dance for the Thanda guests it is not just entertainment. The traditional songs and the traditional attire are components of the rich Zulu culture and they are part of any celebration in the rural areas of Zululand.

Thanda guests have the opportunity to participate in in-depth cultural experiences. A community excursion “In the Footsteps of the Zulus” is one of Thanda’s top activities. For more information go to
