KwaZulu-Natal

KwaZulu-Natal Evening View

The second most populous of South Africa’s nine provinces, KwaZula-Natal is often simply called KZN, and, affectionally, “the garden province.” South Africa is proud of its reputation as One World in One Country, and KZN incarnates the country’s wonderful varieties, from craggy 11,000 foot peaks in the grand Drakensburg Mountains to the province’s long Indian Ocean coast, dotted with seaside resorts.

KwaZulu-Natal’s most populous city, Durban, is the country’s busiest port, and the centre of tourism in eastern South Africa. It’s a jazzy, sub-tropically warm, beach-rich destination in itself, and as a gateway to those many resorts and the green rolling hills of KZN’s interior, “lovely beyond any singing of it,” as Alan Paton wrote in his much-loved Cry, the Beloved Country.
