Kwazulu-Natal

Frank and I spent more than just “48 Hours in Zululand.” The home province of our dear friend Magugu, Kwazulu-Natal came highly recommended for its stunning beaches, soaring mountains and great weather, as well as for its cultural and historical significance.  In addition to our visits to the Simunye Zulu Lodge and the luxurious Cathedral Peak in the Drackensberg mountains, we explored the city of Durban and relaxed for several days at the Zimbale resort. We had a car and the area was very easy to navigate. We discovered many fun neighborhoods and had some of our best South African meals. Not far from the metropolitan area is the Midlands Meander, an area of rolling hills dotted with artist studios, unique shops and cozy restaurants. All in all, we were not surprised to find out that Kwazulu-Natal is one of the country’s most popular tourist destinations.
