Combine your safari with some time on the coast

A diverse and spectacular landscape with a wealth activities to try

Stretching over 400kms from Durban all the way up to the border with Mozambique, the KwaZulu-Natal beaches and coastline is an incredibly varied area, offering experiences that will appeal to all visitors.

For pure relaxation with all facilities laid on, the area immediately north of Durban is a superb place to spend some time, with incredible hotels to enjoy in the upmarket suburb of Umhlanga, and some lovely resort-style hotels around Balito and Shaka’s Rock.

Further up the coast the shoreline of Lake St Lucia is dotted with all manner of places to stay and there are plenty of activities to enjoy. Locals rate St Lucia as a wonderful spot to fish, and you can enjoy boat cruises on the lake, walking, quad biking and birding trips. For those pushed for time it is also a great base for day safaris in the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi National Park.

The nearby iSimangaliso Wetland Park is a paradise for nature lovers, with wild beaches, bird-rich forests and little lakes to explore by boat with expert guides. Between November and March each year the beaches in this part of the world are turtle nesting sites, with guides able to take guests down to witness young turtles hatching and making their first tentative steps down to the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

Whatever type of experience you are looking for, we will able to match your requirements for a KwaZulu-Natal coast holiday to one of the superb spots along this glorious stretch of South Africa. It’s really the perfect way to round off your stay in KZN.
