Year Long Summer
is known as the ideal winter retreat in Southern Africa as this sunny,
sometimes somewhat humid region, apart from in the mountains, seldom drops
below comfortable temperatures. Many tourists from within South Africa flock to
its shores in the winter months to enjoy this almost always temperate climate.
Its Scenic Splendour
those families who like to experience drives in scenic areas, KwaZulu Natal
offers some of the best in the World. From its coastal splendour, to its
hillsides with lush plantations, to the magnificence of the Drakensberg
‘Amphitheatre.’ it is a place of great beauty and majesty.
coastline is a balmy, lush sub-tropical area stretching for miles along the
warm Indian Ocean. Beautiful beaches, vibrant city life, the up-market Umhlanga
rocks and Ballito to the North and the quaint South Coast towns of Margate, Port
Shepstone, Leisure Bay and many more, wait to welcome you.
The Dizzy Heights of The Drakensberg

offer serious climbers and paragliders wonderful extreme sport opportunities.
The Drakensberg is also known as uKhahlamba (or ‘barrier of pointed spears’) in
the isiZulu language.
beautiful lodges with cosy fires nestled in forestry areas, also offer those
who just want to chill great hikes and horseback riding trails.
Sublime Safari Experiences
the north of KwaZulu-Natal lie the Big 5 wildlife areas of isiMangaliso Wetland
Park, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Nature Reserve and Phinda Game Reserve. These are all
magnificent African safari destinations where you will see the best wildlife
that Africa has to offer.
Phinda is famous for exceptionally
good sightings of Cheetah. Although you are less likely to see Leopard, all of
these do offer the ‘Big 5’ with a good selection of antelope, Giraffe, Zebra
and wildebeest as well. You are virtually guaranteed to see the now endangered
and therefore slightly scarcer Rhino in the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park!
In the IsiMangaliso Park,
surrounded by Lake St Lucia, Lion and Elephant are rarely seen, but it has its
own particular charms. It has excellent birdlife and scenic splendour not
offered by the others. Lake St Lucia has the highest vegetated dunes in the
world and there are vast expanses of open grassland alongside spectacular warm
Indian Ocean beaches.
If you time your safari right,
you can also witness the great turtle spectacle on the beaches of Lake St
Lucia, where sea-turtles come to lay their eggs in the summer every year. This
is an experience not to be missed!
