THE ROYAL REED DANCE
The Annual Royal Reed Dance - the highlight of the Zulu cultural calendar and one of the most astonishing gatherings of young girls in the world - has come and gone and what a colourful event it was. Our guests were given VIP seats in the Royal Enclosure at the Enyokeni Palace near Nongoma where they enjoyed a majestic view of 10 000 maidens dressed in their finest beadwork as they presented their reeds to the Zulu king.
