Catering for both pleasure seekers and discerning travellers the Zulu Kingdom stretches out between the Indian Ocean and the mighty Drakensberg mountain range.
The latter is quite unique in the Southern African landscape for its Alpine-like scenery. The landscape alters dramatically between the pastoral beauty of the Natal Midlands with its grassland plains to the sub-tropical greenery of the eastern shoreline and Dolphin Coast and in the north the delight of an African bush region and home to the Big Five. White, palm fringed beaches and water sports, most notably surfing, makes for paradise-like days in the coastal cities of Amamzimtoti, Ballito, Umhlanga Rocks and Margate, while the major city of Durban with its rich local culture, sophisticated restaurants and various attractions should not be missed. From Durban the interior can be explored with the Midlands Meander, an array of routes passing historic landmarks, arts and crafts and many outdoor and adventure sports. The northern Safari region abounds in wildlife and dramatic landscapes, including the Big Five and offers a variety of excellent safari lodges and luxury accommodation. At some game reserves it’s possible to enjoy the best of both worlds with an endless white beach in proximity to a bush and wildlife area. The region brings together a combination of bush, beach and mountains, making an attractive destination with its array of sights and interesting experiences.
