In KwaZulu Natal

The Upper Highway Area was a sleepy village founded in 1895 as a farming and ‘weekend’ retreat. Positioned on the hill between Pietermaritzburg and Durban, the area offers a lush, temperate climate in contrast to the sticky humid heat of Durban or the heightened dry heat of Pietermaritzburg.

The area now offers trendy urban centres with gourmet restaurants, luxurious boutique shopping stores and exciting entertainment venues mixed side by side to Artisan craft shops, intimate coffee houses and child-friendly activity spots.

Explore breathtaking natural vista’s such as The Valley of a Thousand Hills, Kranzkloof Gorge or Shongweni Dam and Nature Reserve and then relax at a luxurious hotel built as a castle, retire to a friendly B&B guest home or stay longer in your personal self-catering little home…

The area has something on offer for everyone; from arts & culture enthusiasts to animal lovers to thrill seekers. SEE Upper Highway Area is dedicated to showcasing the highlights of the area to both local and international travellers.
