Located in one of the most fertile sections of land in the KwaZulu-Natal Province, the bustling town of Empangeni is surrounded by kilometres of green sugar cane fields and blue gum forests. These vast plantations have made Empangeni a major commercial sugar and timber producing area.
Established as a mission station in the mid-1800s, Empangeni is possibly named after the Mpange tree, widespread along the river that winds its way through the town. The climate is sub-tropical and in summer, Empangeni experiences days that reach into the mid-30s (Celsius).
Less than 20 minutes from the warm Indian Ocean and on the route to the oldest game reserve in Africa, Hluhluwe–Imfolozi Park, Empangeni is a restful stopover to best enjoy the region’s attractions.
