Explore Kwazulu Natal

Oct 15, 2007
Kwazulu Natal is a sub-tropical province on the Eastern Coast of South Africa. Kwazulu Natal was formed from the provinces of Kwazulu and Natal. It is a beautiful area with a lot of history, features many great battle sites from the Boer and Zulu wars with the British (as well as each other), and some fabulous game reserves.

The Drakensberg Mountains

The Drakensberg Mountains (a World Heritage Site) are South Africa's highest mountains. The Drakensberg Mountains were referred to as the Dragon Mountains by early settlers. The mountains are home to many nature reserves, including Mount-aux-Sources, and uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park. One of the most spectacular sites in the Drakensberg Mountains is that of Tugela Falls. Tugela Falls is the second highest waterfall in the world and is a magnificent sight to behold! On the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains are a series of caves with primitive paintings on the walls, for those interested in ancient history and art. The Drakensberg Mountains offer beautiful walking trails, cascading waterfalls and great fishing, ideal for the outdoor enthusiast.

Zululand Battlefields

Zululand contains some of the most famous battle sites from the Anglo-Zulu and Boer wars. Some of the most well known Anglo-Zulu battle sites are at Isandlwana, Rorke`s Drift and Fugitives Drift. Boer war sites include Talana Hill (the site of the first battle of the Anglo-Boer War), and Spioenkop (where both Winston Churchill and Mahatma Gandhi were present).

Kwazulu Natal Game Reserves

Kwazulu Natal features some of the oldest game reserves in South Africa, and is a great way place to experience the Big Five - lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and rhino! Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park (established in 1895) is the oldest game reserve. Set in the heart of Zululand, it is a large and incredibly scenic park with rippling hills covered in low acacia bush. The park is particularly famous for its conservation of endangered black rhino and the largest population of white rhino in the world. Other game reserves in the area include Ithala Game Reserve Area, and Tembe Elephant Park.
