More info about Stanger
The official name for the KwaZulu-Natal town of Stanger is KwaDukuza meaning ‘place of the lost person’ in Zulu. The town lies along the Hlimbitwa River and is a few kilometres inland of the east coast of South Africa.
Stanger is an important cultural centre for the Zulu people as it was once a capital established by Shaka, the warrior king who built up a formidable army and was the inventor of the short spear used for close combat fighting. He was murdered here in 1828 and Zulus arrive en masse on the 22nd of September to commemorate Shaka Day. Stanger also has a large Indian community, mostly descendants of indentured immigrants sent here to work the cane fields in the 1860s.
Stanger is a modern town with all amenities, an excellent road network and within easy reach of the bustling city of Durban and other seaside villages and towns hugging the Indian Ocean coastline.
