KwaZulu Natal Safari

The ultimate guide to your next KwaZulu Natal Safari

Get to Know KwaZulu Natal

Rising from a steamy Indian Ocean coastline to the chilly heights of the 3,000-plus-metre uKhahlamba-Drakensberg, KwaZulu-Natal is the most ecologically and scenically diverse of South Africa’s nine provinces

Despite being one of the smaller provinces in South Africa, KwaZulu-Natal’s wealth and variety of attractions is sufficient to keep you busy for weeks. Its urban centrepiece is Durban, which doubles as the busiest port in Africa.

This fun-filled beachfront city is steeped in cosmopolitan Zulu, Indian and British heritage. Stretching on either side of Durban, a beautiful 800-kilometre-long coastline incorporates dozens of low-key beach resorts as well as a primal mosaic of forested dunes, idyllic estuaries, hippo-infested lakes and offshore coral reefs protected in the iSimangaliso (St Lucia) Wetland Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

(P.S. If you’re looking for affordable KZN accommodation deals, we’ve got some great travel deals for you.)
