Early in December I made my way from Mpumalanga into KwaZulu-Natal (KZN), the third province on my journey of exploration. December, the hottest and wettest month of the year, is not ideally the best time to visit but it was the most logical next step so off I went.
As I said in my introduction, this trip was not so much about re-visiting the places I’ve had the privilege of seeing on many previous trips, but rather to try and get to those many other places I’d always had on my “to do” list. For this reason, the KZN chapter of my journey may seem disappointingly lacking in content, but I hope I’ll be able to highlight a few new destinations for those of you following my blog to add to your own bucket lists.
For folks living in South Africa’s inland provinces, KwaZulu-Natal’s south coast provides the quickest access to the coast making it a popular destination for holiday makers looking for a seaside holiday. But this wonderful province has far more to offer than lazy days alongside sub-tropical beaches. From big-five game reserves to dramatic mountain scenery and a bit of everything in-between, it’s no wonder KZN is such a popular destination.
