King Cetshwayo’s residence at Ondini has been recreated on the exact site of the Royal capital following extensive archaeological excavation and the discovery of the original preserved mud and dung floors of the huts. There is a site interpretative centre which has a fascinating display on the scale and layout of Ondini at the time of King Cetshwayo. Due to the enormity of the original capital only the isigodlo (the Royal enclosure) has been rebuilt.

Take the P700 turn-off to the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Game Park and drive for 5kms. Ondini is on the left.
