The history and folklore of KZN can be experienced through the many battlefields, cultural sites and tours, found in KZN. Portugal's ship-borne explorer Vasco da Gama sighted KwaZulu-Natal’s coastline on Christmas Day, 1497, and duly named it Natal, the first clan to bear the title 'Zulu' would only recently have come into existence.

 

The son of Malandela, and bearing a name that translates as 'Heaven', Zulu CLICK FOR MORE had followed the traditional path of marrying and leaving home to establish his own clan soon after coming of age. His settlement thus became the first kwaZulu - 'Place of Heaven' - and its inhabitants the amaZulu - 'People of Heaven'.

 

Zulu's most famous descendant, Shaka, was destined to impact on this land as profoundly as the European and British adventurers who followed in Vasco da Gama's path-finding wake The Kwazulu-Natal Tourist board includes towns like Margate, Port Shepstone, Scottburgh and Port Edward in its definition of what constitutes the South Coast, while Ballito, Umhlanga and Salt Rock are North Coast resort towns. Superb beaches of world-class quality are to be found along South Africa's eastern seaboard, with some of the least developed gems like the beach at Marina Beach (and its adjoining resort San Lameer) that was recognized in 2002 as a Blue Flag beach.

 

KwaZulu-Natal has an estimated population of 8.9 million. In KwaZulu-Natal there are 11 official; languages, with English, Afrikaans, Zulu and Xhosa are the most spoken. KwaZulu-Natal’s climate is an idyllic subtropical, which prevails throughout the year.

 

Inland areas are more temperate. The warm Indian Ocean sea water temperature is enjoyed by swimmers all year round. KwaZulu-Natal province has three different geographic areas: the lowland region along the Indian Ocean coast, plains in the central section, and two mountainous areas, the Drakensberg Mountains in the west and the Lebombo Mountains in the north.

 

The Tugela River flows west to east across the center of the province. KwaZulu-Natal's average temperatures in the province ranges from 17° to 28° C from October to April and from 11° to 25° C in the colder months. Annual rainfall is about 690 mm, falling throughout the year.

 

KwaZulu-Natal’s great wealth of environmental beauty and resources is now firmly established as one of the world's most protected places. KwaZulu-Natal’s expertly managed Nature Conservations and Game Parks ensure not only the protection of our fauna and flora but also provide an incredible outdoor experience. KwaZulu-Natal conjures up images of a noble culture, magnificent wildlife and fabulous surroundings - nothing compares to personal experience of our Zulu Kingdom's heartland.  

 

Remarkable military landmarks also bear testimony to the Anglo-Boer War throughout KwaZulu-Natal. The region got its name in 1816, when the reigning chief, King Shaka, named his Kingdom KwaZulu - the Place of the People of Heaven.

 

An incredible natural phenomenon that takes place annually on the KwaZulu-Natal coast during late autumn or early winter is the "sardine run". Also referred to as "the greatest shoal on earth", the sardine run occurs when millions of sardines migrate from their spawning grounds south of the southern tip of Africa northwards along the Eastern Cape coastline towards KwaZulu-Natal following a path close inshore, often resulting in many fish washing up on beaches along the coast. The huge shoal of fish are followed and preyed upon by thousands of predators, including gamefish, sharks, dolphins and sea birds. Many questions surrounding this extraordinary event remain unanswered.

 

The KwaZulu-Natal coastline is populated with many small towns, many of which serve as holiday and recreational destinations. North of Durban is generally referred to as "The North Coast", while south is "The South Coast".

 

 

There are few places in Africa that rival the diversity of experiences and adventures on offer in KwaZulu-Natal. A few of the tourist attractions in Zululand are:

  • Authentic Zulu cultural villages.

  • Battlefield sites, forts and Museums

  • Game drives and guided walks

  • Wilderness hiking trails

  • a birders paradise

  • the coral reefs of Sodwana

  • St Lucia Wetland Park
