eNanda: Culture & Heritage

eNanda is part of the eThekwini municipality and only 25km away from the bustling city centre of Durban, but due to its semi-rural character, much traditional Zulu culture is still practiced here. This section features indigenous knowledge, beliefs, rituals, and customs, many of which can be observed by interested visitors and tourists. However, this section is neither exclusively about traditional nor Zulu culture. eNanda has always been a place where different cultures co-exist and merge; the unique spirit of the place has evolved through cross-cultural fertilization. Today, eNanda’s culture and heritage consists of a rich diversity of cultural heritage practices that range from traditional Zulu rituals to contemporary South African township culture.
