The landscape and scenery of Natal is magic! Towering mountains of the Drakensburg, beautiful to hike in summer and full of snow in winter. Long stretches of uninhabited wild beaches, and more popular Durban beaches. Lush tropical vegetation and yellow dunes. Rolling hills and quaint stops in the Natal Midlands. History and battles at Fugitives Drift or Three Tree Hill. The Zulu people have a fascinating culture and history and you can even stay in a luxury “traditional home” at Isibindi Zulu Lodge.
