Zikwe is gregarious, egocentric, impatient, and tends to act on impulses without planning ahead. He knows everything, will try anything, and is happy to learn from his mistakes. He will often set out to overcome a challenge but loses interest as soon as it has been achieved. While patriotic about South Africa, Zikwe is also fascinated and delighted by other cultures in Africa and beyond. He loves to travel and meet new people, especially kids, and tells stories about people he has met and things he has seen and done.
