The Zulu tribe of Kwazulu Natal

KwaZulu-Natal

A paradise of warm waters, sun-drenched beaches and eco-wonderlands, KwaZulu-Natal (also known as the Zulu Kingdom) is steeped in history and adventure. From Durban’s bustling gateway of ports, fine dining and first-class shopping outlets to the historic battlefields, where strategists Shaka and Winston Churchill showed their might; this sunny region is fantastic for adventure seekers and discerning travellers. KwaZulu-Natal is home to the renowned &Beyond Phinda Private Game Reserve as well as two UNESCO World Heritage sites; the iSimangaliso/Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, and the breathtaking mountainous region of the uKhahlamba-Drakensburg Park, which showcases exceptional San rock art and is perfect for avid hikers.
