The City of uMhlathuze is blessed with a magnificent natural environment, and the daily lifestyle enjoyed by residents of the City and its surrounds, is the envy of
people both nationally and internationally.
We are blessed with a wonderful climate. Our summers are sizzling hot and our winters are
mild (some might say ‘warm’ in comparison with other places). Our sea temperatures, too, seldom require the use of wetsuits, while our endless stretches of coastline, Blue Flag beach, bay and inland waters mean we have almost year-round access to the most wonderful water sports and leisure events.
We enjoy swimming, angling, boating, body boarding, sailing, canoeing, spearfishing, kite boarding, paddling and many more water-based activities. Added to that are whale- and dolphin-watching and deep-sea fishing (we are one of the finest marlin meccas
in the country).
But we have much more to offer than sun, surf, flat water areas and a landscape that lends itself to adventure tourism. Being as we are in the heart of the Zulu kingdom, we
have an abundance of places of historic and cultural
importance in our brag book. And if we are more inclined to explore other avenues
of nature, we pack our binoculars and cameras and head off to do some birding or take a trip to a number of game parks within an hour’s drive. We pride ourselves for being the mother to the Thula Thula Game Reserve where you can have a conversation with Elephants and many other special wild life creatures.
Add to those royal heritage excursions, visits to significant struggle sites and a package that includes our ever-growing township tours, which already have grabbed the imagination of passengers from visiting cruise liners. And, far from being a hindrance to tourism, our massive industries are in themselves attractions as ‘industrial tourism’ lures students to see some of the biggest operations of their kind in the world.
Added to advantage is the high level of hygiene, cleanliness and our drive to be friends with our natural environment including our clean air status.
Besides being a clean city, we are also ensuring that we run a clean government affairs and now enjoying the fifth consecutive clean audits.
Welcome to the fast growing city in KwaZulu-Natal. The City of uMhlathuze is eagerly waiting to make your event a unforgettable experience.
