KWAZULU-NATAL


The traditional Zulu heartland, blessed with some of the richest scenic and cultural diversity in South Africa, KwaZulu-Natal follows the coastal waters of the Indian Ocean, from the Eastern Cape to the Mozambique border.


THE BATTLEFIELDS This is the area where over a century ago the Boers, the British and the Zulus fought a series of battles that were the bloodiest in South Africa’s history. Two of the most famous were at Isandlwana and the nearby mission of Rorke’s Drift, the latter immortalised in the Michael Caine film ‘Zulu’.


ISANDLWANA LODGE, BATTLEFIELDS Dramatically set overlooking Mount Isandlwana, this luxurious lodge offers guests the same view of the battlefield as that provided to the Zulu commanders some 130 years ago. Built of thatch and stone, the lodge offers guests a relaxing sanctuary and 12 elegant rooms that face the historic Isandlwana plain.


THE DRAKENSBERG MOUNTAINS A World Heritage Site, the Drakensberg Mountains are one of the continent’s most magnificent settings. Filled with challenging peaks, San rock art and awesome vistas, the mountains offer activities from hiking, fishing, horse riding and a day trip through Sani Pass, the winding trail up into Lesotho.


CATHEDRAL PEAK HOTEL One of South Africa’s premier resort hotels, Cathedral Peak lies amongst the breathtaking World Heritage landscapes of the Drakensberg Mountains. A family run business, that first opened its doors back in the 1930s, the hotel offers guests a choice of 96 comfortable en suite rooms and suites, as well as the idyllic solitude of the mountains.
