KwaZulu Natal

With other areas like Cape Town, the Garden Route and The Kruger Park already so firmly on the map, KwaZulu Natal often doesn't get as much press as it deserves - so we are going to unashamedly blow its trumpet.

For anyone looking for a real range of activities from their holiday, this huge region offers as complete a package as you'll find anywhere in the country. KZN offers a perfect two- to three-week adventure.

Beaches: the entire coastline from Mozambique to the Eastern Cape is lined with white sand and blessed with warm Indian Ocean waters.

Mountains: the Drakensberg is a remarkable range that caters for fishing, riding, birding, hiking, rafting, and basically any outdoor activity.

History: the Boer War and Zulu battlefields such as Rorke's Drift, Isandhlawana and Three Tree Hill - but there are dozens more.

Culture: Zululand

Kids: the coastal and Midlands nature and activity parks are ideal for families who want activities other than the beach.

Food: Durban for great grills and Indian spices, the coast for seafood, the Midlands for gourmet retreats.

Game and nature: some of the finest reserves in the country from the lush hills of Umfolozi, to the coastal reserves of St Lucia Wetlands and Kosi Forest.
