As Africa becomes a key trade asset and as trade on the continent increases, so disposable income and the desire for travel by African businesses and tourists increases.



In collaboration with our partners Tourism KZN, Trade & Investment KwaZulu-Natal

Connecting Africa is aimed at attracting continental and South African visitors to KwaZulu-Natal.

As part of the 2016 edition of the initiative East Coast Radio hosted four stations from around the continent.  East Coast Radio took the stations to different destinations around KwaZulu-Natal highlighting specific trade and tourism projects and experiences over 7 days. 


The festive season is around the corner and for some, the mind occasionally wanders off to that sunshine-filled holiday that will be spent unwinding somewhere...EXCEPTIONAL. 

KwaZulu-Natal has consistently got the nod from local and international tourists as a holiday destination of choice - thanks to its golden sun-kissed beaches - and for having something for everyone! 

Holiday-makers can immerse themselves in a variety of culturally-enriching experiences, and feast on a spread of deliciously flavourful food. 

For theatre lovers - various venues will put on spectacular shows that will leave you wanting more - while a jam-packed events calendar boasts beach festivals and toe-tingling jazz at the Hazelmere Dam. 

And a leisure cruise is a swell way to arrive on the east coast! The world-class Port of Durban will receive hundreds of visitors during this cruise season. They will sample the Zulu Kingdom's incredible safaris during their pit stops. 

Be a part of the fun in the sun this festive season and head on to for affordable packages.
