Sibaya Traditional Zulu Boma, Midrand, Central Gauteng.

Sibaya is the Zulu word for cattle kraal or boma and has always been a sacred meeting place for sub-Saharan African people. It is the place where wealth (cattle) is protected and special occasions are celebrated.  It is the focal point around which traditions and customs have been moulded for centuries. The Sibaya offers an historical view of the Zulu using the traditional methods of dance song and story telling. You will be told of the upbringing of King Shaka, his rise to power and the conspiracy to assassinate him. The traditional meaning of the various dances, the “inkatha” and beadwork, the positioning of beehive huts in a typical village, the stabbing spear, the shield and many more interesting facets of life during the days of King Shaka are discussed. Guests will also be offered traditional food and beer and learn the customs. The adventurous will be taught the basic steps of the Zulu dances and are invited to participate. Exit the M1 at the Kelvin/Woodmead offramp and travel north for 6-km. On the right hand side. ABSibaya
