Empangeni (M 11)

Name: Empangeni

Situated in attractive hilly country side, overlooking a flat coastal plain,90 to 150 metres above sea level with panoramic views of Richards Bay and the Indian Ocean from the higher lyiing suburbs.

In 1851, the Norwegian Missionary Society established a station on the banks of the Mpangeni River. The river was named after the profusion of Mpange trees growing along its banks, and the settlement that formed around the station took the slightly Anglicised name of the river.
