Midlands KwaZulu Natal South Africa
Welcome to the Midlands KwaZulu Natal South Africa.
There are several small towns located in the midlands, including: Howick, Merrivale, Hilton, Lions River, Dargle, Lidgetton, Balgowan, Nottingham Road, Rosetta and Mooi River.
This area stretches from Hilton all the way to Bulwer.
Many wedding venues, health spas and arts and crafts outlets can be found in this region.
The meander also boasts world-class accommodation and activities.
Some of South Africa’s top private schools are located in the Midlands, including: Cowan House, Clifton Preparatory School, Treverton Preparatory School and College, Hilton College, Michaelhouse and St. Anne’s Diocesan College.
The region is also becoming known as a wine-producing region.
Many parts of the Midlands Meander resemble the Northern European countryside as there are lush green pastures for cattle to graze on, in order to produce milk and cheese and many species of European trees and bushes planted by the English and Dutch colonizers.
The KwaZulu-Natal midlands can be hot and wet in summer, with average temperatures up to 30 °C, while winters are cool and dry, sometimes with snow and frost, with average temperatures of 6 °C.
