The ‘BloemTakeover’ took place at Middestad Shopping Centre, where shoppers had the opportunity to experience KZN and Durban in a fun interactive way.

Residents took a journey to the mountainous range of KZN, where they could take part in traditional Zulu dancing or zip-line through the scenic skies. Those with a more active interest could catch a few waves through the surfing experience.

Residents could also take photos of their experience, as well as get their face painted as part of the fun.

The takeover is part of Tourism KZN’s educational promotion on what they province as well as the city, Durban has to offer. With holiday packages starting from as little as R2000, Tourism KZN’s Mpume Sibiya said that even though the country is in a recession that should not mean one should wait forever to take your next holiday.

The Zulu Kingdom is a multi-cultural destination which promises an inexhaustible quota of things to do and places to see; such as the mountainous ‘Barrier of Spears’ in Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg Park and coastal iSimangaliso (Greater St Lucia) Wetland Park.
