    Area: 2 516km²
    Description: The Umvoti Local Municipality is a Category B municipality located along the eastern border of the uMzinyathi District in the KwaZulu-Natal province. It is about 65km from Dundee and approximately 70km from Pietermaritzburg. It is the largest municipality of four in the district, making up a third of its geographical area.
     Umvoti comprises five traditional authority areas, all of which are located beyond a 40km radius from Greytown, which is the main centre within the municipal area. The central part of the area is generally covered with high-potential commercial farmland and is characterised by low population density.
     It is well-served by provincial and regional roads, given its location at the intersection of the roads to Pietermaritzburg, the coast, the Drakensberg and the Battlefields Route.
