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.

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.

Many questions surrounding this extraordinary event remain unanswered.
