The natives of Zulu coin themselves to be “the people of the heavens,” and rightly so. People of this tribe wear casual outfits; the Zulu in comparison to other tribes have a modern outlook and lifestyle.

During special occasions, however, Zulu embrace cultural attire and put on clothes representing tradition. One of the most famous in Africa, Zulu, is a South African tribe encompassing more than 10 million people just in the place of KwaZulu-Natal.

The language spoken by the Zulu is known as “IsiZulu;” this tribe transformed into a great kingdom during the turn of the 19th century. A notable concept of the Zulu called “Ubuntu,” which means unity and togetherness, originates here.

    This is an interesting list that you have! I enjoyed reading through it. Might I add another tribe? The Hadzabe Tribe of Tanzania are an interesting group of people. They don’t have permanent homes but move from one place to another and live off the land. They also have their own unique language known as “clicking”. I think having their own language alone would be evidence of how old the tribe has existed. And the fact that within the tribe there is no leader and everyone’s status is equal. I think that’s a rather progressive view of things to have. Don’t you think they’re an interesting tribe to meet? They’re one of the few tribes I would love to visit when I travel to Africa.
