The Drakensberg KwaZulu Natal
The Drakensberg region is - like the entire province of KwaZulu-Natal - one of the less known tourist attractions of South Africa. The spectacular mountain region is a paradise for any nature lover. Excellent national parks invite hiking, mountain climbing and relaxation in unspoiled nature. The Drakensberg and the Natal Midlands below them are also perfect for fishermen, because the crystal-clear mountain streams and rivers make for excellent trout fishing.
The quiet mountain world is only a four hours' drive from Johannesburg. Plenty of excellent and affordable accommodation is available: hotels, guest houses, lodges and bed&breakfast and many well equipped camping sites.
The province of KwaZulu Natal offers many more attractions. From the Drakensberg it only takes two hours to get to Durban and enjoy swimming in the turquoise-blue waters of the Indian ocean. The game reserves of Umfolozi and Hluhluwe are an alternative to the Kruger Park. They are the ideal places to watch and photograph rhinos. And the cultural villages in Eshowe, finally, provide a close insight into the traditional Zulu culture.
