Fabled realm of the proud Zulu, land of towering mountains, gentle grasslands and glorious golden beaches lapped by a warm Indian Ocean - KwaZulu-Natal is all of these and more. Its lively cultural villages reverberate with the sound of drumbeats while silent battlefields evoke the historic clashes between Zulu, Boer and British. Charming country hotels offer modern comfort in the ancient folds of the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park, the country's first natural and cultural World Heritage Site; arts and crafts routes clamour for custom while calm reigns over the reaches of the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.
Here there is something for everyone: nature lovers go for fishing, diving, snorkelling, surfing and canoeing to mountain biking, hiking, rock climbing, birding and game spotting in excellent wildlife parks, reserves and biospheres. City slickers will explore the bustling city, Durban, and the many smaller centres that are such vibrant multicultural blends of eastern, western and indigenous cultures. With the guidance of the authoritative KwaZulu-Natal Adventures in Culture & Nature you will uncover the many jewels waiting to be found.
