This part of the country is often referred to as the Natal midlands and is one of the country's up and coming hunting areas. With a wide variety of plains game and diversity of terrain, from the Drakensberg Mountains (South Africa's highest mountain range) to spectacular canyons. This area now brags the latest South African record for Greater Kudu. Historically, the area is well remembered for the Anglo/Boer and Anglo/Zulu wars. These battlefields and sites are now a major tourist attraction to the region. Many of the decedents of these war veterans and pioneering families own the land where we are likely to hunt. The accommodation varies from hunting camps, guest cottages to refurbished pioneer homesteads.
