KwaZulu-Natal

KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa's Zulu Kingdom, is the beautiful, wild lady of Africa. Although untamed, you will get to experience a warmth and exquisite beauty that pulls right at your heartstrings.

The subtropical weather is not the only warmth you will experience in KwaZulu-Natal. This multi-cultural province, flanked by the warm Indian Ocean and soaring peaks, welcomes everyone with open arms and a very big smile. You'll find that most of its accommodations are run by friendly and hospitable staff, with the interior generally focussing more on comfort and warmth than style.

KwaZulu-Natal is home to the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, a World Heritage site, the Drakensberg, the legendary Zulu kings, the Umhlanga Coastline, incredible game reserves that include the Big Five, the city of Durban, expansive golden beaches (ten of which have World Class status), the South Coast which hosts the Sardine Run, the North Coast with its year-round frolicking dolphins and seasonal whale migrations, the Elephant Coast, the Natal Midlands and Battlefields where Boer, Zulu and British now make pilgrimages of reconciliation.

This is not only a destination popular with tourists, but also with South Africans, who flock to the warm beaches and beautiful mountains for fun-filled family holidays, making it the leader in domestic tourism.

The three different geographic areas of KwaZulu-Natal consist of the lowland region along the Indian Ocean coast, the central Natal Midlands with their undulating hilly plateau, and then two mountainous areas, namely the Drakensberg Mountains in the west and the Lebombo Mountains in the north.
