666 Things To Do in KwaZulu Natal

A sub-tropical coastline littered with beaches that promise warm water and lush, green vegetation, inland battlefields in the hills and valleys of Zululand, the superb Drakensberg Mountain range that dominates the undulating hills of the Midlands, the Elephant coast, Dolphin coast, and cities like Durban, are the fundamentals of the KwaZulu Natal province that lies in the east of the country, bordering Mozambique in the north and the Eastern Cape in the south. National parks, like the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, abound as do nature reserves, and places like Kosi Bay, St Lucia Estuary, Umhlanga, Oribi gorge and Hluhluwe roll off the tongue with ease.
