Durban, Afrique du Sud

Expérience organisée par Wowzulu

  1. 2 heures
  2. Proposée en Anglais

Au programme

Join us for a day of community immersion in Durban. We'll meet at the WOWZULU Marketplace at Ohlange Institute and, after grabbing a cup of coffee or water, head down with your guide/translator (zulu/english) into rural Mzinyathi. Leaving the hustle and bustle of the city behind you, where you are greeted by rolling hills, grazing goats, and friendly people.

We'll make our way to my homestead, set on the slopes of Mzinyathi, where you will be greeted by myself and my craft group. Here you will be welcomed into my home and learn the traditional art of beadwork—the Zulu love letter you make is yours to keep.
Other things to note
We encourage you to engage with the community and greet them. Sawubona means “Hello” in isiZulu. It’s okay to take photos, but it’s always a good idea to ask permission first.

If you love crafting then this is for you! It was really special to spend time with a master beadworker in a rural setting, sitting in a traditional building together making a Zulu bead love letter.

Really enjoyed the beadwork experience! The staff was friendly and warm and really went out of their way to ensure that I learnt the beadwork and finished my Zulu love letter. Tina is also amazing. She is friendly, warm and made sure I understand what was being said and done.

I got the chance to work with a Zulu bead crafter to make a beautiful pin. A tour was also included in the local area including where Nelson Mandela cast his vote in 1994. Be aware of the additional transportation/ tour costs.

A late start to the experience due to location problems however a wonderful experience overall. Saw beautiful views, meet friendly people and learnt a lot about the history of that area. I also really enjoyed learning to beadwork!

Fantastic experience with a wonderful guide Sanele who was extremely knowledgeable. It was fantastic to meet Eunice who taught us how to make a traditional beaded love letter in her home. A brilliant and memorable experience.
