You don’t need to be a South African to visit this most staggering and unique venue. And you definitely don’t need to know who Shaka Zulu is either. From the moment you walk in, till the time you leave, you will be blown away by the wow factor. Perfect for a Father’s ‘Braai’ Day (BBQ) that I am lucky to experience this Sunday, and definitely worthy of a stag-do that’s world class! I am so excited ... I just can’t wait!
Shaka Zulu opened in August 2010 and boasts a magnificent statue right outside its front doors ... not to mention the intricate and handmade decal and accessories covering the space inside. You have to visit it to believe it all!
No matter what kind of evening you are after, you will definitely leave there wanting more. From authentic South African food to their nightly entertainment programme which includes live drumming, marimba, African Jazz and live Dj’s to their entertainers dressed head to toe like wild animals found on the plains of Africa much like the costumes from the musical ‘The Lion King’.
About a month ago I attended a corporate event held at Shaka Zulu and I was completely overwhelmed with it all ... From the attention to detail and the courtesy of the staff. The photo’s I landed up with on my phone DON’T do it justice at all! I even got to experience the live drums. Dotted all around the venue are proper African drums all handmade and in all sorts of sizes. The drummers then teach you how to play with almost every person in their drumming a tune by the end of it. (I say almost because depending how many people are in there at any one time, there just may not be enough drums to go around.)
From private dining, to large groups, Shaka Zulu caters for it all. And as one of their managers said: “Talk to us about any kind of event in quiet times like Feb, absolutely. But if you are looking for something in-season then you will pay a lot more.”
