Every year thousands of bare-breasted Zulu ‘maidens’ gather before their king, honouring the ancient tradition of the Reed Dance. In days long past, the king would select a new bride from among the beautiful throng. The dance takes place at King Enyokeni’s Palace (between Nongoma and Ulundi) around the second weekend of September, before the King Shaka Day Celebration.
