Pongola is a small town situated in the lush and fertile region of northern KwaZulu-Natal, bordering the country of Swaziland. Travellers visiting Pongola pass through evergreen forests, rolling hills covered in sugar cane crops, vast manmade lakes and see the Lebombo Mountains ever present in the distance.
Pongola, or uPhongolo in Zulu, the word meaning Trough for the deep crevices cut by the river of the same name, is divided by the national highway running between the port city of Durban in the south and Mpumalanga Province to the north-west. The area was for centuries occupied by Bantu tribes until farmers moved into the area in the early 20th century. Irrigation systems were built, depressions filled to create enormous dams and sugar cane and fruit trees planted. Today, the area is the domain of the Zulu where their heritage, along with several game farms, have added to Pongola’s appeal.
