Sardines, golf, whales, dolphins, hibiscus flowers, the Drakensburg mountains, the Natal Midlands, zulus and golden beaches are just some of the terms which people associate with this magnificent region of South Africa.
One of the nine provinces of South Africa, KwaZulu-Natal offers an eclectic mix of cultures, natural and unspoilt scenery, pristine beaches, the splendid Indian Ocean - with its abundant sea-life - as well as good infrastructure and modern cities juxtaposed against rural settlements. KZN (as abbreviated by the locals) is also home to the culturally-rich and fascinating history of the Zulu Nation, evident in the many battlefields and historical establishments dotted around this colourful province.
ATTRACTIONS ON THE SOUTH COAST
In addition to being an ideal spot from which to view the Sardine Run, the South Coast consists of a variety of attractions; from a gentle stroll in one of the many reserves to seeing crocodiles in their natural habitat at Croc World - there is something for everyone.
The Aliwal Shoal dive site is one of the most well known dive sites on the KwaZulu-Natal coastline offering a diverse range of marine life. The best area to spot Ragged-Tooth sharks (the area's main attraction) is at the Cathedral, a 4m arch of rock.
Oribi Gorge presents the world's highest abseiling challenge...plus white-knuckle, white-water rafting during the November-to-April rainy season.
Commonly known as the golf coast, golfing enthusiasts have a choice of 11 golf courses to choose from.
In Port Shepstone you can board the Banana Express, an old steam train which runs on a narrow gauge railway line, puffing sedately along the coast and into the the hinterland.
