Prior to our arrival at Shakaland we had not had much expectation on what to expect , and on the whole were pleasantly surprised by the standards the cultural centre put on. The entertainment was really enjoyable and I believe we came away with increased knowledge of the Zulu traditions. The staff were exceedingly friendly, helpful and keen to share their knowledge. The standard of the room (bedroom and bathroom) let the experience down a little. I felt that the linen (bedclothes and towels needed to have been better washed and aired.The food (breakfast and dinner) were most enjoyable, the food well cooked and well presented.
