The 14800km² of land in the northern corner of the Kwazulu-Natal Province of South Africa, and bordering the country of Swaziland, is known as Zululand. This lush green region is filled with dramatic scenery and resplendent game reserves. The area is rich in biodiversity and one of the few places where ancient tribal customs are still practiced and old livestock farming methods are employed.
Ecotourism and conservation are uppermost in the minds of the people that live here. Zululand has the province’s largest rhino population, always under threat of poaching, which prompted a visit by Prince Charles and Camilla in 2011 to discuss the issue with the reigning Zulu monarch, King Goodwill Zwelethini.
The capital Ulundi is where ceremonies important to Zulu culture take place and where the national monument Ondini, a royal residence once occupied by Zulu warrior king Cetshwayo, is located.
