Sometimes, a vacation is all about doing things you never thought you’d never do, visiting the places you never thought you’d see and ultimately being away from the the city buzz. Away from all the things that make up your daily life and just to choose to live the alternative. It is about letting go of all the things you can’t live without for a moment and experience the natural and unpolished beauty of life. The KwaZulu Natal Midlands is just the exact place where you will experience such a vacation – detached from what is nowadays the way of life.
Set in a tranquil countryside, the Midlands boasts picturesque rugged mountains and the Drakensberg just takes the crown. The sublime nature of the areas is what is most striking as you drive along the narrow country roads. The rivers, the lakes , the waterfalls and the thick and lush evergreen forest, the list is endless, you will have to see it with your own eyes than to hear about it a thousand times. Meander through the Midlands from Nottingham Road to Curry’s Post and Howick making your way to Pietermaritzburg the taking a detour to the inlands of Durban, this trip will only take you a few days to complete.
At each point in the journey make sure you take some time to hike, walk the nature trails, go fishing or explore the lifestyle of the locals on their cheese and trout farms. Why not grab a picnic basket and find your perfect spot in the country and be amused by prolific birdlife. Be enchanted by exquisite creativity in form of pottery, woven items and paintings as you meander through the quaint towns.
When it finally feels like it is time for that getaway, that escape into the where life actually began, a Natal Midlands vacation will be all you just need to revitalise and rejuvenate your body, mind and soul.
