Hello and welcome to the KZN Literary Tourism website. Through this site, we aim to provide an invaluable resource for those interested in the relatively new field of Literary Tourism as well as provide information on the work we are currently doing from our base in Durban, South Africa.
What is Literary Tourism?
Literary Tourism is tourism that deals with places and events from fictional texts as well as the lives of their authors. This could include following the route a fictional character charts in a novel, visiting particular settings from a story or tracking down the haunts of a novelist.
Literary tourists are specifically interested in how places have influenced writing and at the same time how writing has created place. In order to become a literary tourist you need little more than your favourite novel and an adventurous spirit. However there are literary guides, literary maps and literary tours to help you on your way
