Kwa-Zulu Natal now easily accessible as British Airways are now offering direct flights from London to Durban.
One of South Africa’s most popular destinations, KwaZulu-Natal is a traveller’s dream – offering diverse and beautiful natural features and landscapes, unparalleled African hospitality and culture and a range of exciting experiences. Offering Drakensberg (Berg), bush, and beach attractions within short travelling distances, KwaZulu-Natal has something for everyone.
Beaches – Located on the east coast of South Africa, the sublime South African climate and the warm waters of the Indian Ocean offer guests to the province the opportunity to relax and enjoy this diverse stretch of coastline. From the pulse of Durban’s Golden Mile to the wild beaches and estuarine eco-systems at St Lucia – and everything in between – there are beaches suited to every travelling taste.
Berg – KwaZulu-Natal is home to the extraordinary beauty of the Drakensberg Mountains – an African mountain range and UNESCO World Heritage Site. Home to San Rock Art, many of the caves in the Drakensberg tell ancient stories. Local and international hikers and climbers are attracted to this natural marvel for its peaks, trails, and promise of adventure. With a number of resorts located in the mountains, the peaks provide a dramatic backdrop for horse trails, fishing trips, or simple relaxation.
Bush – The natural bush of KwaZulu-Natal gives guests a unique safari opportunity and a visit to the province would be incomplete without appreciating its natural bush and wildlife. Located in a pristine private reserve only 2.5 hours’ drive from Durban, Nambiti is a premium luxury bush destination for families and travellers. This Big 5 reserve is malaria-free, presenting guests with a truly relaxing opportunity to experience the African bush. With anti-poaching troops working hard to protect the reserve’s wildlife and far-reaching social responsibility projects on the go, a visit to Nambiti aids in conservation and community work in this special area.
Midlands Meander – Three hours from Durban, the Midlands Meander snakes through gorgeous landscapes, offering a host of activities, experiences, and shopping opportunities along the way. Connecting you to the bush, Berg, and cities of KwaZulu-Natal, the Midlands Meander is the perfect country escape for day trips, weekends, or in-transit between destinations.
