This private, small-group tour takes us through the beautiful, rolling hills of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, an hour and half drive inland from Durban. Our first stop will be at the Mandela Capture Site Museum and Monument, the place where Mandela was arrested before serving 27 years in prison. We then head further into the Midlands, dotted with dairy farms and craft shops. Stops include a craft beer tasting at a local brewery, a modern arts and craft village, a honey shop, a picnic or table lunch at a local cheese maker and a look at Natal's highest waterfall.

Situated just over 120km away from Durban, the KZN Midlands offers guests a country retreat just 90 minutes from the bustling streets of the city.
