A abundance of scenery and culture

With the warm, coral-fringed Indian Ocean at its Eastern border and the mighty Drakensberg Mountains guarding its Western flank, KwaZulu-Natal has it all. Experience a captivating array of well-managed game reserves, historic battlefields, art and craft hotspots, magnificent beaches and the legacy of Shaka Zulu. Between the Drakensberg Mountains and the Indian Ocean lies the Natal Midlands.

This beautiful area is generally mist covered and the rolling green hills shelter quaint villages, cosy pubs, creative studios and a variety of restaurants and coffee shops. Just North of the Tugela River is the Kingdom of Zululand. It was here that the proud and fierce Zulu nation fought so valiantly against British colonialism. The main city of Durban is a bustling seaport of fascinating contrasts. Zulu, Indian and European influences create a cultural mosaic with many attractions.
