The Emakhosini memorial stands on a lookout hill, Khumba, and has a huge, bronze beer pot as the centre piece. Friezes depicting everyday Zulu life surround the pot. On the outer edge of the memorial are seven large animal horns, symbolising the seven kings who lie buried in the valley. The memorial and the park that surrounds it are symbolic of the proud, living heritage of the Zulu people. The park, which lies along the banks of the Umfolozi river, is a magnificent asset. It was created through the consolidation of the 8 000 hectare KZN Wildlife Ophathe game reserve with another 20 000 hectares of land bought for the purpose by the heritage authority, AMAFA.
