Dumazulu, meaning the ``Thundering Zulu", is located in the heart of Zululand's KwaZulu-Natal region, near Hluhluwe village, directly on the main tourist route between the Kruger National Park and Durban. Dumazulu is surrounded by the famous Hluhluwe-Umfolozi, Mkuzi and St. Lucia parks (the home of the white rhino), making it the ideal place for a combined game viewing and cultural experience.
Dumazulu is the only cultural kraal in Zululand to have been personally opened by a Zulu King, his majesty King Goodwill Zwelethini kaBhekuzuku, a direct descendant of King Shaka Zulu, bestowing a great honour upon the kraal and thus placing the Royal Zulu seal of approval on the kraal's authenticity and objectives.
Adjacent to the Kraal is the main dining area, Shebeen (bar), a Zulu artifact curio shop, an indiginous snake pit, a crocodile measuring 4 metres and weighing 350 kilograms, and Dumazulu Lodge.
