Moorcroft Manor Kwazulu Natal

Rough and ready, smart and sophisticated, rural and rustic, KwaZulu-Natal is as eclectic as its cultures, people and landscapes. It has its metropolitan heart in the port of Durban  and its nearby historic capital, Pietermaritzburg. The beaches along this coast attract local holiday-makers, and to the north is Zululand, home to some Africa’s most evocative traditional settlements and cultural sites. The region also boasts alluring national parks and isolated, wild coastal reserves. The province’s border in the far west, the heritage-listed uKhahlamba-Drakensberg  mountain range, features awesome peaks, unforgettable vistas and excellent hiking opportunities.
