In KwaZulu-Natal, opposites attract: modern malls and old bazaars, tribal settlements and shiny skyscrapers, and traditional customs and Western culture. Relax on some of the numerous tranquil beaches that dot the region's long coastline on the Indian Ocean. Climb the mountains, take a savannah safari, see Africa's Big Five game, then go partying after dark. Other highlights of a KwaZulu-Natal itinerary include the second-highest waterfall in the world, Zulu villages, and historic battlefields.
