Coastline

The north coast of Natal – Umhlanga and the Dolphin coast is a picturesque coastline, studded with rocky coves and tidal pools, stretching some 90km north of Durban to the mighty Tugela (Thukela) River. It is also sugar country with a climate ranging from warm to hot and humid.

The northern coastal belt is about 50km wide and was once a dense coastal forest. A trade path from Durban, to what was then Zululand, led up the north coast. It was known as Shaka’s Way and was followed by the ivory hunters, traders and the Zulu army.
