A visit to Kwa-Zulu Natal’s Valley of a Thousand Hills is one characterized by unspoilt nature, wildlife, magnificent scenery, good old South African wining and dining, a rich heritage, and warm country hospitality. This area, just a half an hour's drive from Durban, is named after the thousands of hills that tumble down to the mighty Umgeni River, which flows from the distant Drakensberg Mountains to the warm and inviting Indian Ocean. This area combines luxurious, laidback country living with an ancient, indigenous culture. For generations, the Zulu people have lived in and around the valley, and no visit is complete without a trip to one of the Zulu cultural villages. Here you can gain insight into the culture and traditions of one of the largest of South Africa’s cultural groups, attend (and even participate in) a traditional ceremony, learn about the customs of these fascinating folk, consult with a natural herbalist (inyanga) or a witch doctor (sangoma), and sample some of the homemade beer. Around the area: Experience traditional dancing and cultural shows at Phezulu Safari Park, or shop for crafts and curios at the 1000 Hills Arts and Crafts Village, enjoy a taste of nature at the Assagay, Springside and Krantzkloof Gorge nature reserves, or get your heart racing with some paragliding or rock climbing at Inchanga and Monteseel, or mountain biking at Giba Gorge Mountain Bike Park.
