Life in the Hills is calling you!

Positioned on the crest of a hill between Pietermaritzburg and Durban, the Upper Highway Area offers a lush, temperate climate in contrast to the sticky humid heat of Durban or the heightened dry heat of Pietermaritzburg.

The Upper Highway has fast become a popular area attracting families from all over the country to enjoy the laid-back lifestyle of Country Living whilst still offering the hustle and bustle of the big City Life.

Moving up the hill is more affordable than you think… thanks to Emberton Estate
