The most famous haunted building in KZN - Nottingham Road Hotel

This hotel has been around for many years and so has their resident ghoul.

Charlotte was either a guest or an employee of the hotel. She was in love with a soldier who had died during the Second Anglo-Boer War. She decided to jump from the balcony of room 10 and she later died of complications to her broken leg.

She is known for roaming the hallways and showing her presence in small ways like rearranging flowers, but is in no way evil.

Ghost Mountain Inn, Fish Eagle Road

As the legend goes, the name of the mountain was given by western explorers, who would see strange lights flicker and heard wailing sounds from the top.

The reason, it is believed, is that there are spirits spending their time there because the chiefs of Mozambique would be carried back and buried on Ghost Mountain after their death.

The Catholic convent was used as a retreat for nuns as well as a remedial school for children with learning disabilities.

It was eventually closed due to lack of funding, and now almost every window is broken and has been completely stripped.

The convent is possessed by the spirits of former priests and nuns who refuse to leave. Witnesses have claimed that they experienced heavy breathing, objects falling, and unexplained footsteps.
