The Midlands in KwaZulu-Natal has always been a special place for me. It is a destination where you can escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and offers a range of great activities for the entire family.
Just an hour and a half drive from Durban, travellers will be bowled over by the scenic views along the journey. Whether you do something adventurous or tuck into their vast food options, there’s something for everyone.
Here are some tips:
Start the journey on time: While a lie in during the summer mornings may seem tempting, a trip to the Midlands should start early.
Why do you ask? Well, for one there is no traffic, and the open road gives you the chance to marvel at the scenic views ahead. It also gives you more time at the destination before it’s time to head back home.
Pack snacks: No road trip is complete without some snacks. Besides providing you with the necessary energy to continue the journey, it also is a nice excuse to picnic somewhere with a view.
