KwaZulu Natal

KwaZulu Natal

Things to do - general

From the magnificent peaks of the Drakensberg mountain range of South Africa, across velvet hills and African bush, to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean – the province of KwaZulu Natal (KZN) has long held the enviable position as the most popular holiday destination for South Africans in search of relaxation and a bit of adventure. Year-round sunny skies, spectacular scenery, and heaps of activities keep people coming back for more.

Plenty To Do

On a KwaZulu Natal holiday you can enjoy big game safaris in renowned parks and reserves, learn about South Africa’s rich and bloody history at infamous battlefields, experience sensational scuba-diving, surfing or fishing along a 600kmcoastline, and indulge in gourmet cuisine and luxurious spa treatments in the emerald green hills of the Midlands.
Diverse Cultures

The name KwaZulu Natal may be a bit of a mouthful, but it accurately reflects the formation of the province; which is an amalgamation of the Kingdom of Zululand and the British Colony of Natal. KZN is also home to one of the largest Indian communities outside of India itself.

This mix of Zulu, English and Indian cultures is clearly evident in Durban, where modern shopping centres, African craft stalls, golden-domed mosques, Victorian-style buildings, fragrant spice markets and traditional healers each have their place in the sun.

Stay A While

If you’ve got a bit of time, KwaZulu Natal is great for an African self-drive holiday. The majority of cities and towns lie side-by-side along the coastline, linked by a national highway. Heading inland, a few hours’ drive can take you from beach to big game territory. Be warned though, some of the small rural roads could have you dodging people, potholes and cows.

Scattered throughout the province you can find a wide variety of KwaZulu Natal accommodation, luxurious game lodges with private plunge pools, to owner-run guest houses where you can’t help but feel completely at home.

In fact wherever you go, one of your holiday highlights is sure to be the people you meet. KwaZulu Natal has a well-deserved reputation as a friendly destination, with passionate people keen to share their knowledge and enthusiasm for the place they call home.
