KwaZulu-Natal Safari

There is something meaningful about being a part of the natural habitat of local wildlife – a zoo by its very nature is synthetic, the natural appeal of first-hand immersion is an indescribable experience – which is why the industry is so massive – no matter where you are, you are liable to find a reserve just an hour away; an elephant raising its trunk; a lion catching its prey; a rhino charging in defence of its territory. It’s not only fascinating; it’s an experience of a lifetime.

What is a safari? Is it an expedition to observe animals in their natural habitat? Is it an organized journey to look at wild animals? Is it an overland journey, done to observe and photograph wildlife? Whatever your definition, we all love a good safari tour. Thankfully, KwaZulu-Natal’s conservation and rescue efforts are massive – both in the private and public sector; meaning that there are many game and nature reserves to explore throughout the province.

Northern KwaZulu-Natal alone hosts many of our Big 5 game reserves, including but not limited to: Phinda Game Reserve, Thanda Game Reserve, Zululand Rhino Reserve, AmaZulu Game Reserve, Ithala Game Reserve, and the oldest game reserve in Africa, the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve. Northern KwaZulu-Natal is notorious for its vivid and lively bird life, scenic game drives and variety-pack activities – meaning that along with a drive, you might get a chance to wander the reserve on foot as well.

The iSimangaliso Wetland Park, the first world heritage site in South Africa, presents a fantastic opportunity to mix bush and beach; water and land. South of the park is lake St Lucia – hosting the Western and Eastern Shore Reserves; one a Big 5 reserve and the other not – but equally boasting a fantastic entry into a flourishing ecosystem and magnificent wildlife.

Whether you choose to go with a tour group, with your family, or on your own, a safari in KwaZulu-Natal is a memorable experience – a simple introducing into the flourishing and growing wildlife population of this South African province. 

Did you know that the white rhino was saved in this very province? Thanks to the efforts of staff the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve – the white rhino was saved from a near extinct population of just 20 rhinos.
