Jacob Zuma grew up in Nxamalala in the Thukela Valley and he returns regularly to his roots to get away from the pressures of high office. His home is now a vast presidential homestead of several mansions, a helipad, telecommunication towers, staff quarters, high security fencing and controlled gateways.
The residence can be clearly seen from the side of the road close to the bottom of the valley en route to Kranskop and Greytown.
