Known as the breadbasket of KwaZulu Natal, the Midlands is a verdant and tranquil area filled with interesting things to do. Even a drive through these pastoral scenes is enough to set your soul at ease and the selection of superb Midlands hotels and guesthouses are certain to pamper and refresh the weary traveler. The Midlands Meander is by far the biggest attraction in this region, with its opportunities for relaxation, fine dining and shopping. Farm Stalls, cheeseries, arts and crafts shops, chocolateries, wineries, spas and novel activities can all be sampled on this route. Here you can visit historical sites, picnic alongside cascading waterfalls, canoe, swim, hike, bike, ride, quench your thirst in cheerful pubs, take a tour of South Africa’s leading stud farms or zip line through towering forests. The KwaZulu-Natal Midlands are truly a place for all seasons with hot summers, flowery springs, snowy winters and autumn bursting forth with the colourful blaze of roadside plane trees.
