About the Episode
Hayden visits the live-in museum and set of the wildly successful TV series, Shaka Zulu, before trying his hand at traditional Zulu culture and cooking. At Ghost Mountain Inn, Hayden shows off his skills with a delicious African-Asian fusion venison dish, before exploring the Hluhluwe Game Reserve, where he learns about conservation and anti-poaching initiatives.
KwaZulu-Natal’s Zululand is an icon of culture that forms an integral part of the rainbow tapestry of South Africa. The sheer majesty of the landscape, decorated with the cobalt blue Indian Ocean, mangrove swamps, rolling hills and indigenous forests, is breath stealing. It’s also the seat of Zulu culture and cuisine, which is heavily influenced by its surrounds.
