When to Go:Any time of the year, but note that summers can be very hot. Itinerary Rating:Moderate. Not suitable for very young children. Other:Our meeting point will be at your choice of B&B situated in the Dundee area. Dundee is almost the halfway point between Johannesburg and Durban and an estimated four hour drive from each of these cities. You will need to spend two nights in Dundee. Remember to wear suitable clothes and shoes for the terrain, a hat and sun protection. There are no toilets on the tour, so one must be prepared to use the bush. (I bring along a portable toilet!) Accommodation options: Recommended accommodation lists are available on the Tourism Dundee and Talana Museum websites. Other Activities:The boys and girls in these areas love football, so you can bring a ball or two along. (Optional) The joy on their faces is priceless! You may wish to combine this with other tours in the area. Points Of Interest:Additional tours offered by Zululand Tours:• iSandlwana and Rorke’s Drift Battlefields Tour • Blood River and Talana Museum • Motor cycle tours to the top of Msinga Mountain for breakfast. • Fishing Tours (Buffalo River)

This is a guided day trip into the rural areas of Msinga, Pomeroy and Qudeni (Northern KwaZulu-Natal) with Mike Nel from Zululand Tours.

After breakfast, we travel towards the rural areas of Zululand.  The scenery is breath-taking with spectacular views of deep valleys, high mountains and plateaus. Nature lovers will enjoy the variety of plants, trees and grasses.  The flowering aloes in winter are also a “must see”.

BIRD LIFE There is plenty for bird lovers too.  The area boasts many bird species.

SAN ROCK ART Depending on your interests, we can visit paintings of the San people who once roamed and hunted in the area. These painting are seldom seen as few people know their whereabouts.

RURAL HOMESTEAD VISIT A visit to a rural homestead is the highlight of the day.  The visit is completely informal, not at all “set up” and you see Zulu people the way they live every day in these rural areas.

I give detailed explanations of Zulu customs – handshakes, greetings, marriage, etc. and act as an interpreter so that you may ask questions and gain an understanding of traditional rural life and customs.
