The Elephant Coast of KwaZulu-Natal

One of South Africa's most unspoilt and beautiful areas, the Elephant Coast is a narrow strip of land - about 200 kms long and 70 kms wide, running down the coast of Kwazulu-Natal.

The area is home to an incredible 21 different eco-systems, with dense evergreen forests of fig trees, lush ferns and wild orchids, and palm savannahs with wild date and lala palms.  Visit swamp forests with large raffias and greenery which is home to many exquisite birds and view mountainous sand dunes.

Fresh water ecosystems include major rivers, flood plains and large coastal lagoons and lovely clear coastal lakes.  Game includes hippo, crocodile and many small game and bird species.  Over 2000 plant species, many of which are endemic to the region, brighten the landscape.  The Elephant Coast runs from the north west, by the Ubombo Mountains, to the east and the warm Indian Ocean, and in the South by the Unfolozi River, just below the famous St Lucia Estuary, part of a World Heritage site. Many paleantological sites of scientific importance can be found in the area.

A holiday destination with something for everyone - gorgeous sandy beaches, game reserves, fishing and deep sea fishing, water sports including diving on various reefs, mountain trails, historic sites and cultural activities.  Imagine viewing the Big 5 in a game reserve, then driving a short 30 kms to watch the dolphins and whales!
