Experience the Maiden Ceremony Zulu tradition

Share the news!!!


The Maiden Ceremony is a traditional Zulu event that takes place annually, in which women participate in the traditional dance of the maidens to celebrate their purity.

The week before the ceremony the young ladies are kept in separate rooms, where they will stay inside until the day of the ceremony.

While tucked away from society the elder women from the community council the young maidens on values and etiquette pertaining to their culture and becoming of age.

This practice is still strongly believed in and the girls dress in traditional wear with beads. Before the ceremony, the girls sing from inside the homestead as a sign to show that the young lady is still under her parents’ supervision and guidance. After the ceremony, the community get together for a feast of meats and traditional Zulu beer.
