Northern KwaZulu Natal offers numerous attractions, and the N2 north of Durban is, therefore, one of the most interesting stretches in South Africa.
First on the list is a visit to Shakaland Zulu Cultural Village in Eshowe where you get an introduction to the culture of the Zulu people.
The Umfolozi and Hluhluwe Game Reserve - known for its great game stock, especially rhinos - can be reached via Mtubatuba or from Hluhluwe. Accommodation is scarce in this very popular park and one might have to stay overnight in Hluhluwe or in St. Lucia. Same applies to the Mkuzi Game Reserve.
