    Description: The Mtubatuba Local Municipality is a Category B municipality situated in the south-eastern corner of the uMkhanyakude District along the northern coastal belt of KwaZulu-Natal. Mtubatuba is located roughly 200km north of Durban and 55km north of the Richards Bay/Empangeni metropole along the N2 National Route. It is one of four municipalities in the district.

There has been substantial commercial growth in Mtubatuba, lending it the status of being an economic hub of northern KwaZulu-Natal.
