The Zulu kingdom is called KwaZulu, or "place of heaven." This fertile country contains wilderness parks, traditional kraals (native villages), and Durban, Africa's busiest port.
IsiZulu is 1 of 11 official languages in South Africa, not to mention many more unofficial ones. Other official
tongues include Afrikaans, English, isiNdebele, isiXhosa, Sepedi, Sesotho, Setswana, siSwati, Tshivenda, and Xitsonga.
