Make a holiday rental property or accommodation in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa your home away from home

KwaZulu Natal (KZN) is a magical region of South Africa, with spectacular scenery of all types, from the sweeping beaches of the Indian Ocean to the sheer front of the Drakensburg Mountains. No matter what your interests upon your arrival in self catering KwaZulu Natal accommodation, your holiday will be filled with more hours and a more diverse range of entertainment than you could possible imagine! KwaZulu Natal, South Africa is a completely unforgettable holiday destination, and one which will stay with you long after you return home.

Things to do on holiday in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

It is hard to know where to start with KwaZulu Natal. There is so much to see that taking self catering KwaZulu Natal accommodation right in the middle of the region and touring can seem like the only way to see everything. However, there are some great tours of KwaZulu Natal to do, meaning that you can see all that you came to see, with ease and with one luxurious base.

The KwaZulu Natal coast is stunning. Almost perfectly straight for huge distances and lined with deep, golden sand, the beaches of KwaZulu Natal attract visitors from around the world. Snorkelling, swimming and fishing are all hugely popular activities from the beach, and although you can easily take a canoe or small boat further out to fish, the majority of those venturing past the breaks are surfing. Such infamous beaches as Salt Rock call KwaZulu Natal home and you will be able to get surfing tips with ease. As you travel away from Durban, the Dolphin Coast begins, named due to the rich marine life. From view points in traditional villages along the coast, you can often see dolphin and whales with surprising regularity, and there is nothing in the world more special than the feeling of waking up at dawn in KwaZulu Natal accommodation, walking down to the beach with a board, and seeing dolphin playing in the shallows as you prepare to tackle the swells.

No guide to KwaZulu Natal would be complete without a mention of the fantastic game sanctuaries. KwaZulu Natal safaris are some of the best you can have in South Africa, providing one of very few global destination where you can scuba dive in the morning and view game in the afternoon. With such a diversity of habitats, KwaZulu Natal safaris give you the opportunity to see an unrivalled number of species from cats to crocodiles.

KwaZulu Natal has had a fairly turbulent past, inextricably linked to the British Empire, and it was here that many of South Africa’s most important battles were fought. KwaZulu Natal battlefield tours are easily arranged and tear-jerkingly poignant at times. If you can only visit one KwaZulu Natal battlefield during your holiday, the mission station at Rowke’s Drift (immortalised in the film ZULU) is simply unmissable, and despite the extra cost, the local guides are exceptional value.

Places to visit on holiday in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

Durban is the main city in KwaZulu Natal. Aside from the famous golden beaches which provide the focus for Durban’s youth who surf, body-board, shop and party throughout the day, Durban has a carnival atmosphere throughout. Although the shopping districts throughout Durban are excellent, the Indian Market is one of the most fascinating places to go, although you will have to make sure your bargaining skills are honed!

Fantastic Sea Views

5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this house, including the monkey families who visited us on a regular basis. The house is very well equipped and very comfortable. The sea views are fantastic. Overall the Blythedale Beach area, particular the municipal beach area, is in need of some love and tender care as it is extremely dilapidated and looks like time passed it by quite a few years back. Having said that there are plenty of excellent shopping, golf and beach facilities within a 20 minutes drive of the house.

Tranquil location on the shores of the Indian Ocea

5 of 5
The name says it all. This is better than “Home from Home” A wonderful place to stay for either the outdoors active traveller or the professional business traveller who needs downtime in the evening or at the weekend. The location is superb, surrounded by countryside & forest and over-looking the vast Indian Ocean. What more could you ask for. Many exhilarating activities on your doorstep, hiking, walking, bicycle tracks, golf, beaches and local community shops and cafes. The facilities are second to none, everything you need including a small kitchen area to prepare meals & snacks. Immaculate and well equipped with comfortable bedding and spacious brightly decorated rooms. The owners are two wonderful people who being outdoor enthiuasts themselves are available to give expert advice on all activities or requirements you may have. They live on the property however you may not even notice that as your privacy will be highly respected. I have visited while on business and can only wish to return soon to experience the peace and tranquillity, as well as try out the local golf course.
