KwaZulu Natal is a land of stark contrasts and eclectic nature. This South African province is the perfect blend of the rough and sophisticated, rural and rustic, and timeless and temporal. Its terrain is divided into three main geographical landscapes; lowland, midland plateaus and the mountainous regions. The lowland descends into and gracefully intermingles with the Indian Ocean. The coast is peppered with picturesque villages and fishing towns that impart an air of grandeur. Here, one can either indulge in a plethora of water sports or devour the serenity by sunbathing under the glistening sun. The KwaZulu Natal midlands are a spectacle of Heavens on Earth. It encapsulates some of South Africa’s finest landmarks, botanical gardens, nature reserves, multicultural enclosures and modern day infrastructure.
