The Hibiscus Coast: This 70km stretch of coastline attracts thousands of holiday-makers every year.  The small coastal towns of Hibberdene, Port Shepstone, Shelly Beach, Margate, Southbroom, Margate and Port Edward dot the coastline as you travel south from Durban. Stroll along the delightful beachfronts stopping into little restaurants along the way.

kwazulu natal scenary bar7-african-stay

Sardine Run & Whales: A great tourist attraction every year in June and July is the sardine run, when sardines migrate up the KZN coastline in a northerly direction.  It brings in its wake hundreds of dolphins, marine birds and sharks competing with fishermen and crowds of eager tourists trying their hand at collecting a slippery dinner.

Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is in the northern area of KZN. This area is renowned for its rich diversity of animals, birds, trees and plant communities. This is Big 5 territory and home of the White Rhino Conservation Programme. The annual migration of butterflies brings the surrounding bush to spectacular life. Over 300 recorded species of bird are to be found in this area including the rare Palmnut Vulture.

The Zulu Kingdom. The area stretching from far north of KZN right to Maputoland is called the Zulu Kingdom.  The small kingdom gained world fame during and after the Anglo-Zulu War.

The Natal Battlefields: Steeped in history, the central and northern part of Kwazulu Natal is a beautiful land that hides a violent history.

Known as the Battlefields for the bloody battles fought over a period of 70 years between the Boers, British and Zulus, this area is rich in history, culture and sadness.  It shaped the history of South Africa.

Meet our Battlefield guides and weep with them as they bring the Battles to life, and describe the futility of war.

kwazulu natal scenary bar11-african-stay

Set in an area of scenic splendour numerous battle site routes have been developed.  You can visit places like Isandlwana and Rorke’s Drift where these epic conflicts are brought to life with re-enacted battles. The famous Battle of Blood River, so named because the river ran red with the blood of the Zulu’s, is a site not to be missed by any history lover.

For a special treat, travel to the beautiful Elephant Coast, where, seasonally, Loggerhead and Leatherback baby turtles smash out of their eggs laid along the beach, and desperately struggle to the sea. Many are picked up by foraging birds, and more still by hunting water predators. The beauty of nature and the desperate will to survive is something that will enthral you.
