This is a great excursion if you are wishing to gain a great knowledge about the Zulu culture and an insight into the way they used to live. The tour also included a trip round the Crocodile Sanctuary which is must.

The drive for Valley of a 1000 hills itself is beautiful. Once you reach the top it is serene and calm. The undulating hills had lot more to offer. There are eating joints where one must not miss out the scone and tea. With the atmosphere and surrounding, this goes pretty well. I enjoyed a lot
