From adventure to safari, make this summer season one that’s filled with a bit of everything!

With the summer holidays upon us, we would like to remind you why KwaZulu-Natal is the place to be this festive season! 

Known for our authentic safari experiences, culture, food, and beaches to enjoy all the way along our coast, make KwaZulu-Natal your preferred holiday destination this December for you and your family. 

With so much to do you can’t decide where to start? We’ve put together some activity suggestions to ensure you make the most of your holiday season! 

If it’s the views you’re looking for, then why not glide across the open sky while taking in the vast greenery that stretches on for miles in a hot air balloon through the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands? It surely is the best way to take in some of the province’s most glorious panoramic views.

And if you’re looking for more of an ocean view, you may want to venture about 40 minutes north of Durban, for an exhilarating Micro lighting experience. Here you can expect birds-eye scenic views of the north coast with regular sightings of dolphins, sharks, whales, turtles, stingrays and numerous other marine life.

If you prefer being closer to the ground, take in the beauty of the South Coast coastline via horseback beach rides. Watch the sun set and the moon rise on horseback – a truly magical 12km adventure!

If you seek adrenaline, you’ve come to the right place. KwaZulu-Natal offers a host of heart-throbbing activities waiting for you to embark on! Take a walk on the wild side at the Karkloof Canopy Tours. You can zipline through the canopies, while marveling at some of the most beautiful views from high up.

Looking for something more daring? Why not try Lake Eland? Situated around 2 hours south of Durban lies the longest zipline tour in Africa! Braving this zipline tour will leave you with an exhilarating experience you will be bragging to your friends about forever. 

Wondering where to go absolutely wild? Make your way down to Wild 5 Activities at Oribi Gorge, where you can swing from the longest gorge swing in South Africa (165m) and the longest of its kind in the world. The best part is that it is just a mere 2.5-hour drive from Durban.

Teeming with Africa’s most famous animals, when you visit KwaZulu-Natal make sure you take a moment to set your eyes on the big five. Guaranteeing wildlife sightings, Zululand is home to the world-renowned Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park and the iSimangaliso Wetland Park. Offering a break from the modern-world, the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park and the iSimangaliso Wetland Park is characterised by untouched wetlands filled with birdlife, Big Five bush breakaways and beautiful beaches. Who said you can’t have it all?
