This settlement comprised of 159 plots with a total area of 6 189 ha.(This settlement, which is today the town of Pongola, is still strong today)
"Save the Mother/Orphan" Awareness Programme
I would like to share with you what we are doing here in Zululand where HIV/Aids are active and a reality. I believe we are running for first position…..? Not any more in Zululand!
15 Years ago the population in Zululand had no idea what was happening in their communities! Then I spoke of the Unseen Tsunami! I still do!

What to do and see
Experience the tradition and hospitality of the Zulu Kingdom with a visit to the Zulu Royal Palace, rural villages and townships. We have tiger fishing, hunting, game trails and safaris, art galleries in the bush, beautiful tropical gardens, game reserves with the big 5 and you can visit sugar cane, citrus and pecan nut farms in production. Or you can go on short or long hiking trails through the bush.
The N2 is a major national road that arcs through Zululand, linking Mpumalanga with the KwaZulu-Natal coast, but the regional roads R33, R34, R66, R68 and R69 that criss-cross most of the area are well used. Zululand is not well served by public transport and visitors should check with tourist information offices before setting out.
The Pongola River rises at some 2 200m above mean sea level near Wakkerstroom, Mpumalanga, and descends steeply through the major portion of its catchment to the west of the Lebombo mountains.
The Pongola passes between the Lebombo and Ubombo ranges through a narrow gorge (known as Pongolapoort)
