KwaZulu Natal Accommodation
The KwaZulu Natal province is in the North East corner of South Africa, bordering Mozambique. If you’re looking for accommodation in Kwazulu Natal, you’re going to have a tough time choosing one, given the variety of options available. Diversity is a phrase synonymous with South Africa as a whole, but KwaZulu Natal epitomises its meaning absolutely.
The province comprises 3 main geographical regions; the low-lying coast, the green, undulating midlands and the rocky, mountainous area of the Drankensberg and Lebombo mountain ranges respectively. As can be expected, each area offers a different experience to the traveller.
Natal’s coast offers the sun-worshipers among us warm ocean temperatures and a number of blue flag-certified beaches. There are also a number of good surfing spots and renowned diving destinations along this coast.
For the nature lovers, KwaZulu Natal is home to 3 UNESCO World Heritage sites; Ndumo, iSimangaliso Wetlands Park and the uKuhlamba Drakensberg Park, which provide habitats to a huge diversity of species. The Hluhluwe Mfolozi Park is a big five destination, just another arrow in Natal’s quiver as a safari and conservation destination.
The midlands on the other hand, are the epitome of country life. Dotted with small towns, country estates, farm-style restaurants and craft shops pushing everything from blown glass trinkets and pottery to beautiful crocheted linen, the midlands are a great place to pass a couple of relaxing days.
If history is more your thing, the Battlefield region of KwaZulu Natal will not disappoint. Aptly named for the famous battles that took place here between the British settlers and Zulu natives, a tour will more than satiate your desire to learn more, bringing these famous battles to life.
If one or more of these regions capture your imagination, booking KwaZulu Natal accommodation is a must!
