CULTURAL VILLAGE TOUR

With Elephant Lake Safaris

Located within the Khula Village is the Veyane Cultural Village, a community-based Zulu village situated on the southern periphery of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, just five kilometres outside of St Lucia.

Rife in history, Khula Village is a developing peri-urban community made up of families who arrived from the south side of the Dukuduku Forest in the 1980s. The community’s social structure remains traditionalist while most residents are subsistence farmers.

The Veyane Cultural Village aims to offer tourists an authentic and interactive Zulu Cultural experience while giving members of the community an opportunity to benefit from tourism.
