Regions

KwaZulu-Natal

KwaZulu-Natal, on the eastern side of South Africa, is bordered by the warm Indian Ocean to the East and the high escarpment of the Drakensberg Mountains to the West.

This colourful province offers a host of attractions not to be missed. These include the stunning and extremely scenic Drakensberg Moutains or ‘Ukhahlamba’ (Barrier of Spiers in Zulu) offering walks, fishing, horse riding and the opportunity to view ancient Rock Art. The province is also steeped in history, some of the most famous locations being that of the Anglo, Boer and British Battlefields including Rorke’s Drift, Spioenkop and Isandlwana.

The coastline offers a host of stunning beaches where visitors can experience warm coastal waters, excellent surfing and some of the best diving in South Africa. Nature also abounds with dolphins visible year round, turtle nesting in the Summer and the great ‘Sardine Run’, usually taking place around June.

Further North are a host of excellent game reserves such as Phinda, offering big five viewing as well as the iSimangaliso (Greater St Lucia) Wetland Park.

KwaZulu is also home one of Africa’s most famous kingdoms, The Zulu, and therefore steeped in living culture and tradition.
