KwaZulu-Natal holidays

KwaZulu-Natal forms South Africa’s east coast and is a diverse region of traditional towns and villages, mountain ranges, battlefields and safari parks. Durban is the most common entry point, a short flight from Johannesburg. From here, travel north to the Midlands Meander, a project started in 1983 by local craftspeople to market their products and now extending over 80 kms, with a huge variety of stalls.

Continue to the Drakensberg Mountain range or travel east to the battlefields of Spioenkop, Blood River, Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift. Here, local historians recount tales of conflict between the British, Boer and Zulu.

From Durban fly to Richard’s Bay to explore the wilderness areas of Hluhluwe-Umfolozi and the Greater St Lucia Private Game Reserve. A short drive north of Durban are the popular beach resorts of Ballito and Umhlanga Rocks.
