Quick Facts

  • In the local isiZulu language, KwaZulu means ‘Place of the Zulu people’. The word Zulu is derived from eZulweni, which loosely translated means ‘heaven’ or ‘sky above’. The name ‘Natal’ dates back to 1497 when Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama sighted the beautiful coastline while sailing past on Christmas day and named it ‘Terra de Natalia’ in reference to the birth of Christ. After South Africas' first democratic elections in 1994, the two names were joined to form “KwaZulu-Natal”, more commonly referred to as KZN.
  • KZN has 11 districts namely Amajuba (Newcastle), Zululand (Ulundi), uMkhanyakude (Mkuze), uThungulu (Richards Bay), Umzinyathi (Dundee), uThukela (Ladysmith), Umgungundlovu (Pietermaritzburg), iLembe (KwaDukuza, formerly Stanger), eThekwini (Durban), Ugu (Port Shepstone) and Sisonke (Ixopo)
  • There is a system of approximately 96 protected areas covering some 8% of the province, roughly 736 480 hectares. The larger parks include Hluhluwe-Imfolozi, iSimangaliso Wetland Park and uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park.
