‘KZN’ (as it is known) feels distinctly different to the rest of South Africa. It’s warmer, more humid, and altogether more tropical. The traditional home of the Zulu people, KZN has a rich tribal history, as well as colonial battlefields from the Anglo-Zulu war.

The long Indian Ocean coastline means that ocean safaris are an option as well as land-based activities, with SCUBA diving being a particular highlight. KZN also boasts some of South Africa’s most beautiful coastal resorts and luxurious, stylish beachfront hotels, so you can enjoy a combined ‘surf and turf’ holiday all within the one province.

Relax and enjoy quality beach time, allow yourself to be pampered in hotel spas, or head out on safari in search of the Big Five and more. Whatever your idea of the perfect day on vacation, you can have it all in KZN.
