Gooderson Dumazulu Lodge & Traditional Village


“Thundering Zulu”, the direct translation of DumaZulu, is an appropriate label for a place rich in African culture.

Situated in the heart of Zululand, near Hluhluwe, DumaZulu offers an authentic African cultural experience starting with the individual units. Each self-standing unit is designed to resemble different tribes of Africa, including Zulu, Swazi, North Sotho, Xhosa, Venda, Tsonga and Ndebele.

Each unit has undergone a recent refurbishment with the new decor adding rich colours of the earth to the interior, hues of burnt oranges, rich reds and browns now add to the tasteful ethnic feel.

Each unit offers a comfortable, pleasant setting with en-suite bathrooms, air-conditioning, telephones and tea/coffee making facilities.

Ten self-catering units, with a kitchenette neatly built within the unit allow guests to choose between home cooking and dining at the lodge restaurant.

A swimming pool is also available on the property.

The Main Dining Room offers Breakfast & traditional Zulu Barbeque lunch & buffet style dinner.

Overall the experience was very good, but I think more can be done to show visitors more of Zulu culture. Music plays a huge part of the Zulu culture and this opportunity to sell it was under utilised. More traditional activities after Dinner i.e participative signing and dancing.
