Cape Town, otherwise known as “The Mother City”, is a cherished destination among locals and internationals alike. The city is the legislative capital of South Africa and is located on a peninsula, on the country’s southwest coast. It has, in recent years, been named the best place in the world to visit by leading international media – and the reasons for this are unmistakable. Cape Town is rich in natural beauty, diversity, entertainment and world-class developments.
The region’s Mediterranean climate makes for pleasant summers, although winds can pick up. Notwithstanding Cape Town’s unpredictable weather, which has earned it the reputation of having four seasons in one day, the city experiences an average of over 3 000 hours of sunshine a year. Winters are typically rainy, but the city takes on a cosy, European atmosphere which is easily embraced at one of the Winelands’ many estates, alongside a fireplace.
KwaZulu-Natal also referred to as KZN and known as “the garden province” is a province of South Africa that was created in 1994 when the Zulu bantustan of KwaZulu (“Place of the Zulu” in Zulu) and Natal Province were merged. It is located in the southeast of the country, enjoying a long shoreline beside the Indian Ocean and sharing borders with three other provinces and the countries of Mozambique, Eswatini and Lesotho. Its capital is Pietermaritzburg and its largest city is Durban. It is the second most populous province in South Africa, with slightly fewer residents than Gauteng.
During the 1830s and early 1840s, the northern part of what is now KwaZulu-Natal was occupied by the Zulu Kingdom while the southern part was, briefly, the Boer republic of Natalia before becoming, in 1843, the British Colony of Natal. KwaZulu remained independent until 1879.
