KwaZulu-Natal Holidays: an Overview

KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) is one of South Africa's largest provinces but is often overlooked by visitors who tend to enjoy a safari, go to Cape Town and the Winelands and then perhaps along the Garden Route.

Well, we at Original Travel think KwaZulu-Natal is well worth a look. There's Anglo-Zulu War heritage to discover, the dramatic Drakensberg Mountain range for superb trekking, excellent game reserves and some of the Rainbow Nation's finest coastline.

Elsewhere, between the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and the waterways of the Greater Saint Lucia Wetland Park renamed iSimangaliso Wetland Park in 2007 (a World Heritage Site), Phinda Game Reserve's 17,000 hectares span seven unique ecosystems and host an unrivalled diversity of wildlife including the 'big five', almost 400 species of bird and superb marine wildlife such as dolphins and turtles - perfect for a luxury safari.

KwaZulu-Natal holiday activities range from game drives to diving, and it's possible to spot a lion in the morning and a whale shark in the afternoon.

A Note on Price

South Africa’s USP is the sheer variety of experiences it offers (from food and drink to diving to safari), which makes it tricky to provide guide prices. A luxury holiday combining Cape Town and the Winelands could cost around £2,000 per person, while upgrading to the best hotels and including a top end safari could add a few thousand to the bill.
