Welcome to KwaDukuza
KwaDukuza, also known as Stanger, is an important stop for those undertaking a Shaka pilgrimage or those interested in Zulu culture. In July 1825, Shaka established it as his capital and royal residence. It was here that he was killed in 1828 by his half-brothers Mhlangane and Dingaan; Dingaan then took power. Each year Zulus don their traditional gear and gather in the Recreational Grounds for the King Shaka Day Celebration.
The city serves as the central business district for the surrounding rural communities. Other than the museums in town, tourists won't find much to see here. It can be done as a day trip.
