The province of KwaZulu-Natal borders Mozambique, Swaziland, and Lesotho. In April of 2010 my wife and I spent a week at the Breakers enjoying the beautiful beach, nearby casino and of course a little shopping in Durban. The Breakers at Umhlanga is a great place to stay will visiting the area.
Sand sculptures are very common on the beaches of Durban and the surrounding areas and Marine Parade in Durban is no exception. Great works of art by the locals! Durban, South Africa is in the province of KwaZulu-Natal. KwaZulu means "Place of the Zulu". The province is home to the Zulu monarchy, and the majority population and language of the province is Zulu.
Vasco da Gama of Portugal saw the coast of Natal on Christmas Day 1497. Want to know more about my first trip to South Africa? Click on this link.
