Kwazulu Natal

KwaZulu-Natal is a stunning and lush area of South Africa and one of the most accessible and exciting parts of Africa to visit on a family safari. It's relaxed, scenically beautiful and easy to do as a self-drive itinerary combining everything from (inspirational) battlefield tours to mountains and coast.

While you won't find the extensive true wilderness areas you can expect in countries such as Tanzania, Kenya and Zambia, there are great opportunities for a taste of game viewing as part of the mix here. 

And what Kwazulu Natal excels at is embracing the outdoor life in every way possible; from rides and walks into the stunning countryside, to more extreme sports such as white-water rafting, canoeing or climbing and abseiling, all in the hands of highly accomplished guides.

This is an area of massive and epically beautiful landscapes; rolling plains dotted with solitary flat-topped hills. The stunning Drakensberg mountain range forming an iconic backdrop, with its pinnacles and spire like formations rising to the peaks of high berg, some of which are over 3 000 metres. 

As well as all the things you'll experience outside, the other major reason to visit this area is to experience the natural hospitatlity in charming and often family-run small hotels and homestays. Expect hosts who are relaxed and welcoming as well as passionate about the fresh, often locally grown food they produce.
