Views from the Trail
Excerpts from letters received by Zulu Trailists
During the last 10 days we've learned a whole lot of new things, about the interesting Zulu culture but also about who we are. We grew up together as a group and we are so thankful that you invented this unbelievable awesome project. Without you we would have never crossed a river in the middle of South Africa or slaughtered two chickens or played with these cute children. Thank you for making this life-changing experience possible for us.
We really did learn a lot about the Zulu culture and also about ourselves which I didn't expect. The people that let us stay at their homesteads were very welcoming and also interested in our culture and way of living. I think we all enjoyed the time together although we had to walk a lot which gave us time to talk and learn more about each other. I really liked our group and I think Sandile and Sipho were really great "guides". If someone would ask me if I want to go again I would definitely say yes!
