KZN Literary Tourism is pleased to have our tours highlighted in The Culture Trip's article celebrating "The Top Literary Landmarks To Visit in South Africa". The article places our humble project amongst great literary institutions like the National English Literature Museum (NELM) in Grahamstown and Cape Town's Centre for the Book.
According to writer, Lee-Shay Collison:
The KwaZulu-Natal Literary Tour celebrates the province’s diverse literary heritage. With a choice of eight literary trails, tourists have the opportunity to connect with their favorite authors from the area, such as Alan Paton, Fatima Meer and Lewis Nkosi, to name a few, by visiting the places that inspired their writings. The KZN Literary Tourism project was established in 2002 and provides trained literary guides and detailed maps to avid readers who wish to embark on the trails around the cities of Durban and Pietermaritzburg. Over 100 writers are linked to the project, all of whom were either born in KZN or have written about the province and places within it. The literary trails are a fascinating alternative to regular tourism and provide a unique experience to those interested in South African literature.
