KwaZulu-Natal National Parks information:

 

Introduction to the KwaZulu-Natal, Durban Area and the population demographics.

 

Tim Brown Tours – Durban Safaris and Durban Tours focuses on Touring the area of KwaZulu-Natal and showing our clients the wonders of not only the 2 World Heritage Sites that we have, but also the other areas which are just a beautiful but have not yet got that status as being a World Heritage Site.

Durban is a large City on the east coast of South Africa which has very interesting History, and a population of approximately 3.4 Million people.

The Zulu tribe is the main Black African community found in the Durban and KwaZulu-Natal province.  This adds a vast amount of culture to the area of Durban and KwaZulu-Natal when clients visit.

Indian communities are also found in Durban and KwaZulu-Natal. Reasons for this were the trading between Europe, Africa and Asia where business men came out to aid the trade of spices and the second major reason being the indentured laborers brought out in 1860 but the colonial British to assist in the harvesting of Sugar cane, KwaZulu-Natal’s biggest crop export.
