“The Everglades Hotel is located 35 km from Howick in the spectacular Kwazulu-Natal Midlands. Situated at the foot of the Inhlosane Mountain and in the foothills of the Drakensberg mountains with all it’s beautiful forests and streams.
The Everglades hotel is is 5 and half hours drive South of Johannesburg and 2 hours drive North West of Durban. Pietermaritzburg is one hour away.
The gentle rolling countryside of the KZN Midlands just north of Pietermaritzburg (uMgungundlovu District) is home to South Africa’s premier country route. The Midlands Meander provides a different perspective for the visitor to the “Zulu Kingdom” with a diverse range of experiences from luxurious pampering to antique collecting to milking cows!” ~ source Everglades Country Hotel
This photo was taken on our way to Everglades as the weather was slowly clearing. It had been snowing not far away in the Drakensberg. It was really cold for us Durban folk with a stiff breeze at 8 degrees C.
However, we discovered Il Postino Pizzeria late that afternoon and got warmed up there – log fire, rugby, pizza and Old Brown Sherry.
The kind owner said I shouldn’t tell his wife that he gave us a few extra tots of Old Brown but hey – who cannot advertise hospitality like that!
All of this is only 1 hr 45 min from Durban.
