KwaZulu Natal is often overlooked when planning a South Africa holiday but with stunning scenery, fascinating history and wonderful safari it is a great part of the country  to spend two weeks exploring, with the added bonus of dry, sunny winters.  Arriving into Durban you will drive west to stay near the famous Sani Pass which leads up to Lesotho. From here you will head further into the Drakensberg Mountains with its fabulous walks, bird watching and fishing to name just a few activities before continuing to the Battlefields and an insight into the history and culture of this region.  Finally end your holiday with a few days on safari – the ultimate in excitement, as you head out each day into the bush to see what close encounters await with Africa’s big game.
