Natal Midlands

Your first experience of the Natal Midlands is on your approach to the Drakensberg. The Natal Midlands offers tourism opportunities unparalleled in this fertile cradle of land found between the Sunshine Coast and the craggy Drakensberg Mountains. The Natal Midlands is a myriad  waterfalls, lakes, dams, Zulu cultural villages, game reserves and historical battle sites. The Natal Midlands have some of the most historic battle sites in South Africa. It was here that the Boer met the British and the Zulu Impis met both! The climate is pleasant most of the year; summers tend to be hot, while winters are very mild. Locations include Albert Falls Nature Reserve, Estcourt, Howick, Notingham Road, Midmar Nature Reserve and Mooirivier.  

Natal Midlands The landscape is green and softly wavy, dominated by pastures and pine forests. Numerous rivers of crystal-clear water from the Drakensberg highlands make the Midlands the South African destination of choice for anglers. Particularly popular is the almost meditative art of fly-fishing. Trout was introduced here back in 1889 by Scottish settlers.

The Midlands offer excellent hotels, guest houses, country lodges, restaurants and tea-gardens. The Midlands Meander route which runs mainly between Howick and Nottingham Road is a delightful shopping and browsing side-trip, including numerous antique shops, art galleries and arts and crafts studios
