Choosing your ideal self catering holiday accommodation in KZN

KwaZulu-Natal is so jam-packed with incredible holiday destinations that it's difficult to choose where to go! Self catering holidays are the most affordable way to travel and experience KZN at its best. Each area has its own distinctive charm, so choose the one that appeals to you most or try them all!


Durban is known as South Africa's Miami; a warm, subtropical city set on the golden shores of the Indian Ocean. Durban's beachfront, the Golden Mile, is a fantastic place to stay or visit. The newly renovated promenade runs parallel to the beaches from Suncoast Casino in the north to uShaka Marine World in the south and offers access to a whole range of Durban attractions.

North Coast

The North Coast is an extension of Durban's golden sands, warm climate and holiday atmosphere. The "Dolphin Coast" (part of the North Coast) is so named because of the bottlenose dolphins often spotted frolicking in the waves. The coastline from Umhlanga through Ballito and Salt Rock is perfect for family holidays. There are plenty of safe swimming beaches and convenient holiday resorts offering all the amenities needed for an entertaining getaway.

South Coast

KZN's South Coast is a holiday destination of note. The area is renowned for its abundance of fantastic golf courses which attract visitors from all over the country (and the world). Other than golfing, the Hibiscus Coast (the lower South Coast) has plenty to offer holidaymakers. Long, sandy beaches punctuated with rivers and lagoons are just the thing for happy days of pedal boating, kayaking, and a game of beach cricket!


The Drakensberg is the majestic mountain range dividing KwaZulu-Natal and Lesotho. A favourite with South Africans from all over the country, "The Berg" is a fantastic place for holidays! Summers are warm and the mountains are covered with lush greenery, while winters are cold with a blanket of snow. Walking, hiking, rock climbing and birding are popular Berg activities.

KwaZulu-Natal is a remarkable province with an impressive array of attractions. Whether you love the beach or Berg, coast or country, contact Optima Holidays to help you book your ideal self catering holiday accommodation in KZN.
