South Africa Indian Ocean Coast & KwaZulu Natal

South Africa Indian Ocean Coast & KwaZulu Natal

Staying in everything from luxury tents in a game reserve to cozy air-conditioned B&Bs, you'll get to enjoy a taste of what makes South Africa such a diverse and contrasting land. Coastal towns, isolated beaches and a crocodile farm are just part of what await you on this adventure.

With plenty of time to explore at your own pace, this South Africa safari will take you along the Indian Ocean coast where the iconic great white sharks lurk beneath the waves. Getting into a cage to catch a glimpse of them is optional of course, but highly recommended by us!

South Africa Safari Attractions

  •  iSimangaliso Wetland Park became South Africa's very first UNESCO World Heritage Site when it opened in 1999. Since then its reputation has only grown, with an abundance of wildlife now roaming within the 3,300kmof open space.
  • When you stay in a luxury tent in Falaza Game Reserve, you're contributing directly to Chipembere Rhino Foundation, an organisation dedicated to the protection of the endangered African rhino. 
  • Anyone interested in history should go for the optional Rorke's Drift battlefield tour, to see where roughly 150 British soldiers fought off 3,000 Zulu warriors in 1879.

Holiday Highlights

Best Time to Visit

May-Oct: Not only is the South African winter a quieter time of year to visit, but the whale watching season starts around July. If you're going to be visiting the Indian Ocean coast, now would be the time to go. August is another great option, as southern right whales make their migration from Antarctica with their newborn calves.
