Midlands Meander

Sunset Cottages in the heart of KwaZulu-Natal offers guests a gateway to the internationally renowned Midlands Meander.

The KZN Midlands is a magical place rich in creativity, cuisine, history and is home to some of the finest educational institutions in South Africa including Hilton College, Michaelhouse and St Annes.

A major tourist attraction in KwaZulu-Natal is the Midlands Meander; a collection of arranged routes that offer visitors hospitality in truly beautiful surroundings, outstanding accommodation, conference and wedding facilities, fascinating local events, fabulous cuisine and restaurants, revitalising outdoor activities and over-the-top adventure sports, historic landmarks, wildlife conservation, and best of all "shop-till-you-drop" unique arts and crafts.

An easy one-hour drive from Durban and four and a half hours on the N3 highway from Johannesburg, there is much to explore and do in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. Sunset Cottages welcomes you to enjoy your Midlands Meander adventure with us.
