An Idea of Africa

An Idea of Africa

The Victoria Street Market is a busy place and you have to seek and deal for what you wish. Very kind and lovely Indian sellers explain to you how to use spices. Explore traditional handcrafts of the Zulu culture as well as from the greater Africa in general. You have to deal the price and it can be funny for most, but annoying for others who are not used to that. Take a cab to go there. We spent 1.30 hour.

Definitely A Cultural Wonder

Definitely A Cultural Wonder

If you want to see the penetration of Zulu culture in the city go to the Muti Bridge at Victoria Street Market. I did it with a friend who is familiar with the traders and the stuff being traded. He offered me background to the market, the bridge and the merchandise. It was extremely educational. The number of sangomas and herbalists in the market is astounding so were the various things for sale. Approach with curiosity and an open mind. There’s always something to learn and this is even more true in the market.

A Treasure House of Zulu Craft

A Treasure House of Zulu Craft

The Victoria Street Market is truly a treasure house of Zulu craft… woodwork, ostrich eggs, gorgeously crafted bead jewellery, and more and more! So so many shops, I bought truly amazing stuff, now decorating my table at home. But bargain you must!

If you want to see the penetration of Zulu culture in Durban go to the Muti Bridge at Victoria Street Market. I did it with a friend who is familiar with the traders and the articles being traded. He offered me background to the market, the bridge and the merchandise. It was extremely educational. The number of Sangomas (traditional healer)s and herbalists in the market is astounding so were the various items for sale. Approach with curiosity and with an open mind. There’s always something to learn and this is even more true in the market.
