Welcome to Local Advertiser
Kwazulu Natal with its subtropical climate and lush valleys washed by the warm Indian Ocean is one of South Africa’s most popular tourist destinations. It is South Africa’s third-smallest province and takes up 7.7 % of South Africa’s land area. It has the second largest population in the country with 10.3 million people.
Pietermaritzburg is the capital of Kwazulu Natal, while Durban is one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the world. Its harbour is the busiest in South Africa and one of the 10 largest in the world. Several popular coastal holiday resorts in the province such as Margate, Umhlanga Rocks, Scottburgh and many more attract thousands of holiday makers annually.
Richards Bay harbour that was built in 1976 for the export of coal, is South Africa’s premier bulk port and the single largest export coal terminal in the world. The largest sand-mining and mineral-processing operation in the world is found at Richards Bay Minerals.
Thanks to its abundant water supply and labour resources, rapid industrialisation has taken place with industries found at Ladysmith, Dundee, Newcastle, Hammarsdale, Richards Bay, Durban, Pietermaritzburg, Mandeni and Richmond.
King Shaka airport, the gateway to the Zulu kingdom and named the third best airport in Africa, boasts a state-of-the-art cargo terminal; a trade zone where freight-forwarding and air-cargo-related businesses are housed, as well as a agrizone that consist of a 20-hectare development for vegetable and flower production.
The good rainfall in this region (more than 1 000mm a year) and fertility of the soil make agriculture central to the economy of Kwazulu Natal. The Indian Ocean coastal belt is a large producer of subtropical fruit while farmers in the surrounding areas concentrate on dairy- and stock-farming and growing vegetables,. The kilometre upon kilometre of sugar-cane plantations along the Indian Ocean coastal belt is the basis of Kwazulu Natal’s agriculture. Forestry in the areas around Richmond, Eshowe, Harding, Vryheid and Ngome is another major source of income.
