Ulundi lies at the hub of the old Zulu Kingdom and the sector is considered to be hugely underdeveloped with many of the cultural resources not being capitalised on. A number of tourism activities are located in and around Ulundi. These include game reserves, historical/cultural sites, cultural events and guest lodges. Game reserves in the area include the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park, the Ophathe Game Reserve, and the ThakaZulu Game Reserve. Historical/cultural sites include Nodwengu (King Mpande’s residence and grave), Ulundi Battlefield, and Piet Retief’s grave.

The KwaZulu Cultural Museum houses interesting displays relating to Zulu history and archaeology. The beehive huts and the layout of the original Zulu village have been reproduced.

The eMakhosiniConservancy  (Valley of the Zulu Kings), birthplace of King Shaka, is the venue for a new tourism- and economic development project, which  includes a number of historical sites. The joint public-private sector project aims to preserve the culture and history of the Zulu people.
