The Dolphin Coast - Between the ocean and the bush.
A seaside town north of Ballito is just 30 minutes from King Shaka Airport (Durban). The city is ideal to start your journey through KwaZulu Natal, especially your relaxing stay on the Dolphin Coast.
This is your gateway to the sublime iSimangaliso Park, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its fauna, flora and the variety of its ecosystem. As for St Lucia, it will welcome you to discover its hippos and crocodiles on a boat safari.
From protected nature reserves, dotted with lakes and swamps to deserted beaches and coral reefs which are perfect for diving. We will take you to stay on the coast of Maputaland.
You are now only two kilometers away from the border with Mozambique. Discover an intimate and rustic atmosphere while between kayaking trips on the lake and walking in the sandy forest.
Bringing together two reserves: Hluhluwe-Umfolozi, the park is home to the BIG 5 including many rhinos. It is proclaimed the oldest in Africa. It is also one of the largest in South Africa. Promising a more intimate experience, with a completely different landscape from that of the Kruger Park.
SAFARI AND VOLUNTEERSHIP
On your way back to Durban airport, you will be taken to a stopover in a private game reserve, a true sanctuary dedicated to the protection and survival of animals, especially elephants. One last escape into the wild!
The Black Sheep's choice
Spotting big games on a safari is most probably one of the goals of your trip to South Africa. But we will take you on an unusual safari. Be ready to encounter the chameleons of iSimangaliso on a night safari.
