KwaZulu Natal

KwaZulu Natal

The province of KwaZulu Natal is home to a multitude of attractions, with some­thing to suit every taste, budget and relaxation requirement. It also has a sub-tropical climate, mak­ing it ideal to visit at almost any time of the year.

The city of Durban, the capital of the province, has amazing beaches, with some of the best surf­ing waves in the country. Durban also has many fine restaurants and is well known for its culinary delights.

To the South lies the famous South Coast, with towns like Margate and Port Alfred offering relaxed accommodation and an opportunity to while away the time, walk along the beaches and swim and scuba dive in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

North of Durban, en route to Mozambique, lies the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, a wild­life sanctuary and popular tourist destination. This protected natural paradise combines wetlands with dunes, coastal forests, coral reefs and underwater canyons and offers many adventure opportunities and excellent accommodation.

Further inland, the world famous Oribi Gorge offers spectacular scenery, where wind and water have etched a magnificent ravine through the landscape. Visit the Drakensberg Mountains, where hiking, game viewing, bird watching, pony trails and the chance to see ancient rock paintings are offered.
