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.

Thanks Glenn for the advice for trips in the area and to both of you to make our stay so welcoming! We keep you and this beautiful space in our memories of our unforgettable ZA trip.

The town and beach are a very short drive and there is everything you need there for a laid back beach holiday. Excellent local amenities and restaurants, we felt safe and secure and Joan and Mick were excellent hosts.
