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.
