Holiday Highlights

  • Get close to the wildlife at Hluhluwe on a series of game drives and walks.
  • Discover the battlefields at Isandlwana. The British Army's worst defeat against an indigenous foe.
  • Walk the awe-inspiring Drakensberg Mountains.
  • Dip your toes in the Indian Ocean at St Lucia
  • Rorke’s Drift. A minor battle which resulted in the issue of 11 Victoria Crosses!

KwaZulu Natal is the traditional home of the Zulu tribe. KwaZulu translates into English as 'Zululand'. Bordering the Indian Ocean, it is South Africa's easternmost province. Inland are wetlands, the Battlefields of the Boer and Zulu wars, and the towering peaks of the Drakensberg, the highest mountain in South Africa. The variety of landscape is astonishing, the history fascinating, and the wildlife bountiful.

Flying into Durban you head north to the Hluhluwe area. Here enjoy four days of game walks and drives accompanied by rangers with the chance to see giraffe, impala, nyala, warthog, white rhino, wildebeest and zebra. Boat safaris bring you close to crocodiles, hippos and a wealth of birdlife.

You head inland to Dundee, a small town rich in Boer heritage, where British troops withdrew from Zulu land after their defeat at the battle of Isandlwana during the 1879 Anglo Zulu War. The first shots of the Second Anglo Boer war were fired in Dundee in what later became known as the Battle of Talana. You have the whole day with a specialist military guide who will bring the battlefields to life. You stay at Rorkes Drift, close by the scene of the (in)famous battle

You continue towards the Drakensberg Mountains. The Drakensberg’s rugged escarpment provides a dramatic background to the gentle green and rolling hills of the KwaZulu Natal Midlands. You can head straight out on foot from the hotel into the amazing mountain scenery. The hotel at Cavern Berg is in a stunning location on the edge of the Royal Natal National Park, dominated by the Amphitheatre, a crescent-shaped basalt-topped wall four miles wide which soars to a height of 3000m. 

Please note the Zululand Resort only offers twin bedded rooms. This is not a problem for clients booking twins or singles but clients booking a double will have twin bedded room here and double bedded rooms in Rorke's Drift and Cavernberg.
