KwaZulu Natal - South Africa

The coast of KwaZulu Natal (KZN) was first sighted by the Portuguese discoverer Vasco da Gama on Christmas Day 1497, during the journey which took him to India. As Christmas is translated in Portuguese as Natal, this gave the original name to the region.

KwaZulu Natal Game ReservesThe first part of this Province current name, KwaZulu meaning the place of the Zulu, has been added more recently, and it was later decided to keep both names together as the final name for the Province of KwaZulu Natal.

KwaZulu Natal, is one of the smallest provinces in South Africa, it stretches from the southern borders of Swaziland and Mozambique to the Eastern Cape border in the South. Inland is flanked by Kingdom of Lesotho, the Free State and the Gauteng (previously Transvaal) Provinces.

Known for its scenic diversity, KwaZulu Natal is justly proud of its untamed wilderness, broad beaches, lush subtropical vegetation, sugar and banana farms, hills and towns of the Midlands and the soaring peaks of the Drakensberg.
