KwaZulu Natal Adventures

South Africa’s KwaZulu Natal province is a place of dramatic dynamism, evidenced everywhere from its awesome landscapes to its iconic inhabitants. The Indian Ocean pounds the shores into pristine sands, the land surges up to form the earthy Drakensberg mountains, prowling creatures stalk the savannahs and wetlands, and local storytellers recite gripping tales around historical landmarks and campfires.

The Drakensberg

Province capital Durban provides a gateway to the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Drakensberg range, where cattle-crossed roads take you to the foot of these mountains. Communities and schoolchildren smile and wave as you make your way uphill to discover greener pastures and vivid vistas.

Near the top, the rugged mountains dominate the skyline at every turn. Helicopter rides zip through the grand peaks and troughs. Awe-inspiring quad-biking sessions take place on weaving trails. Those who simply wish to take in the tranquillity of life in the rarefied air will be delighted after experiencing the calming lakes and gorgeous swimming pools.

Rorke's Drift

History fans will want to gather at the former battlegrounds of Rorke’s Drift, a place where you can mountain-bike among giraffes in the morning, then hear a history expert give an animated and fascinating talk on the grounds of the famous Anglo-Zulu battle. Their fierce stories of combat will stay with you long after the sun has set over the former Zulu warrior-lined ridge.

Manyoni Private Game Reserve

With a fantastic density of animals per square mile, the “big five” roam happily in the bush for spotting by expert guides driving you through top predator country. Here you may see lion prides hunting and devouring impala, cheetah families stretching at dusk, rare black rhinos cooling themselves in the dust, and elephants feasting on fauna. It is five-star game viewing from a truly five-star venue.

Maputaland Coast & iSimangaliso Wetland Park

Maputaland Coast offers the relaxing delights of Lake Sibaya with its surrounding guided forest hikes and village visits. After which a trip to iSimangaliso Wetland Park, another World Heritage site, promises wonderment at the vast wilderness, snorkeling with exotic sea dwellers, and spotting Leatherback and Loggerhead turtles laying eggs at night!
