South Africa
beauty, you'll never forget

1. Mount Moreland

John Moreland surveyed this area which is named after him and it was here, in the 1860's that Liege Hulett began a farming industry which eventually made the name of his family synonymous with sugar in South Africa. His first sugar mill at Tinley Manor is now one of the largest in the country.

2. Tongaat

Tongaat is situated approximately 37 km north of Durban – the name “Tongaat” is readily associated with “sugar” and for good reason as Tongaat is one of the largest sugar producing districts in the world. Planning a trip to Durban can leave you with much to see and many areas to visit, for Tongaat we would recommend keeping one or two afternoons open to explore the well-known town.

The holiday town is well situated, close to the bustling Umhalnga…

4. Westbrook

Westbrook Beach is a small growing community situated on the KwaZulu-Natal north coast between Ballito and La Mercy. The area is ideally placed for the nearby retail centres of Gateway and La Lucia Mall and ten minutes drive from Ballito, just a few kilometres to the north. The closest "large centre" to Westbrook is Umhlanga, about 30 minutes drive along the coast to the south. Umhlanga is an extremely popular resort that was once just a coastal dune forest. The beach here is ideal for swimming, and there are frequent visits from dolphins and whales. Once a year the 32 km International ARB Surf Ski World Cup race to Durban's Bay of Plenty starts at Westbrook Beach. Westbrook Beach has been awarded international Blue Flag status for excelling in safety, amenities, cleanliness and…
