About Kwa-Zulu Natal

The battlefields of Kwa-Zulu Natal were the stage to some of the most poignant moments of military history. Visits to the famous battle sites of Isandlwana, Rorke’s Drift and Spioenkop can be appreciated not just for their historical significance but also their natural beauty. Meanwhile the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve offers visitors to Kwa-Zulu Natal an authentic Big 5 South African safari experience on the former hunting grounds of King Shaka. 

Kwa-Zulu Natal is known for its jaw-dropping scenery and the jagged peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains that undoubtedly earn it that reputation. The mountains are so striking that they inspired J.R.R Tolkien’s ‘Middle Earth’ in the Lord of the Rings novels. The range and its hiking trails are only a few hour’s drive away from Durban and the Indian Ocean coastline where scenic beaches are the perfect setting for spectacular sunsets.
