Margate Airport KZN

Margate Airport is an airport in Margate, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa (IATA: MGH, ICAO: FAMG).

Margate is a seaside resort town on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast, about 20 kilometres southwest of Port Shepstone. The river which flows into the sea at Margate is called "Nkhongweni" (place of entreaty) because the original inhabitants were reputed to be so mean that travelers had to beg for hospitality. In 1908, Henry Richardson, an English surveyor laid out the town and named it Margate after another seaside resort on the northern coast of the county of Kent, in the United Kingdom.

"There is no sport equal to that which aviators enjoy while being carried through the air on great white wings."
