A GREEN JEWEL

In KwaZulu Natal

The Upper Highway Area was a sleepy village founded in 1895 as a farming and ‘weekend’ retreat. Positioned on the crest of a 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 a trendy urban centre 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 breath taking 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.
