KwaZulu-Natal Midlands

South Africa

No, you’re not surrounded by the Hobbit's Middle Earth scenery, you're just roaming the winding roads of the verdant KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. With gently undulating acres of stud and dairy farms; roads lined with white post fences; restaurants offering tea and scones; art galleries and craft stores… the European cultivated charm is everywhere. And yet this genteel area of KwaZulu-Natal is still so very African – bold and dramatic. Here you’ll find secret valleys and indigenous forests; a fascinating history of war and battles and vast unspoilt nature reserves - a true haven for wildlife and a perfect wedding backdrop.

The Natal Midlands, with abundant rivers, lakes, dams and waterfalls, offers endless green pastures and in the hilly north the region is dominated by the foothills of the Drakensberg.
