Battlefield sites include Isandlwana, Rorke's Drift and Spionkop, to mention only a few.
A visit to KwaZulu Natal would only be complete with a visit to Zululand—a region steeped in traditions and where you can immerse yourself entirely in Zulu culture. Zululand also offers travellers an untamed wilderness with numerous private "big 5" game reserves and warm Indian Ocean beaches that stretch for miles in either direction.

The Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is an ideal destination for photography enthusiasts who appreciate beautiful landscapes and diverse wildlife, one of South Africa's best National Parks.

uShaka Marine World Durban
Some of the most beautiful game reserves in South Africa are located in Kwazulu Natal, within a few hours' drive of the airport.
Coupled with the Drakensberg Mountain range and the tropical Indian Ocean coast, you have a pretty impressive list of sights to see and experience.
When it comes to Durban however, people have mostly avoided the city as of no particular interest for the family. Think again.
After the Two Oceans and continuing our theme of running, on the 1st of June is the mother of all ultramarathon running in South Africa and the world, The Comrades Marathon.
This is a race of some pedigree and not only is it the oldest with it having begun in 1921 but it is also by far the largest with an average of 12000 runners competing annually.
Fugitives Drift Review
David Rattray is synonymous with Fugitives Drift. His love and hard work put this obscure corner of Zululand on the world map.
Initially, he pioneered the new tourism sector of historical tours in South Africa and then by attracting the great and good of this world including several members of the British Royal Family to this area who consequently were important in financing the influential David Rattray Foundation.
Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift Battlefields
There are few other places on earth where you can visit a battlefield area and see exactly what the soldiers of 130 years ago observed.
The now-famous battles of Rorke’s Drift and Isandlwana Battlefields are two of those places and the fact that they are located in the vast and unspoilt beauty of Zululand adds to their allure.
