OUR HISTORY

THANK GOODNESS HISTORY IS NOT A SINGLE STORY LINE.

Context, point-of-view and the passage of time produce different stories about the past. And they are probably all mostly true. The history of the Zulu and this area has passed from one generation to the next by storytelling. Tales of battles and infidelities, deceit, allegiances of convenience and moral outrage. Understanding the history of this region will influence your understanding of this unique area.

The historical insights which follow are based on local guide, Wilfred Mchunu’s, extensive notes. Getting to know the main characters and how events unfolded in the hills and valleys of Zululand will add another dimension to your connection with the Biyela and Mthembu specifically and the Zulu people more generally.

Take the time to immerse yourself in the stories passed down from generation to generation
