KwaZulu-Natal

One of South Africa’s most diverse provinces

KwaZulu-Natal is one of South Africa’s most diverse provinces and has so much to offer the intrepid traveller. Trace the region’s rich history in ancient battlefields, explore the rolling hills of the Midlands and wade in warm waters on sub-tropical beaches.

One of the biggest draws of KwaZulu-Natal is the spectacular Drakensberg Mountains, arguably the most impressive mountain range in South Africa. Adventure opportunities are endless in this natural wonderland that features rugged cliffs, sweeping valleys, towering mountains and endless hiking trails. The ‘Berg’ is also home to some of the world’s finest examples of rock art, which can be spotted in many caves throughout the mountains. 

For a breath of fresh air and picturesque countryside vistas venture to the Midlands where you can stroll through beautiful forests and small villages following the Midlands Meander. KwaZulu-Natal also offers impressive wildlife viewing and a range of safari options, including thrilling self-drives in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park.

No trip to KwaZulu-Natal would be complete without immersing yourself in the rich history of the province. KwaZulu-Natal’s ancient battlefields tell the tale of the many conflicts between the British, Zulu and Boer that occurred throughout history, such as the Anglo-Boer battlefield at Spioenkop and the Anglo-Zulu battlefields of Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift.

KwaZulu-Natal is blessed with beautiful stretches of coast, perfect for enjoying the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. Durban is full of life with incredible beaches and even better surfing, whilst the quieter Elephant Coast in the north is ideal for a more tranquil experience with excellent diving.
