Harry Gwala District Municipality (previously known as Sisonke District Municipality) is situated south of KwaZulu-Natal. It is comprised of five local municipalities: Ingwe, Kwa Sani, uMzimkhulu, Greater Kokstad and Ubuhlebezwe, and the District Management Area. The seat of Harry Gwala is Ixopo. The municipality is surrounded by uMgungundlovu to the north-east, Ugu to the south-east, OR Tambo to the south, Alfred Nzo to the south-west, the Kingdom of Lesotho to the north-west and uThukela to the north. It is also bordered by the Drakensberg Mountains, which form a 200km-long World Heritage Site. Economically, the most prominent employment sectors are agriculture, construction and small-scale manufacturing. The district is known for its progressive farming methods. The unspoilt natural environment has high ecotourism and adventure-tourism potential. Harry Gwala has an abundance of high quality soils, high altitude, abundant water, and climatic extremes, which makes the area suitable for dairy farming. A significant portion of dairy consumed in KZN is produced within the district.
