KwaZulu-Natal Battlefields & Game Reserves

We have a special place for KwaZulu-Natal in our hearts as this is their home province. This tour aims to give our clients a good over all view of KwaZulu-Natal, from the Drakensberg mountains to the beaches of Maputaland.

We start off in Durban, where we will take you off the beaten track as we head for the Valley of a Thousand Hills to witness, amongst other things, an On-Air raptor display. You will get to see these magnificent birds of prey in action.

Our next stop is Howick falls, and then on to the Midlands Meander, before spending the night in Dundee.

Next day takes us back in time, to witness the many battles that where fought in the area. We will show you the three better known battle sites: Blood River from the Zulu Boer war, then Isandlwana and Rorkes Drift from the Anglo Zulu war.

The next highlight is when we enter the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game reserve, which is KwaZulu-Natal's premier Big 5 game reserve. This game reserve obtained world recognition for its Operation Rhino project which is responsible of saving both the Black and White Rhino.

We will offer you a chance to not only see the Big 5, but also to take part in a night drive which gives you a chance to view the nocturnal game species which are usually not seen. The third and fourth nights will be spent here.

The following day will start off with an early morning game drive, before we leave the park and make our way to the Greater St. Lucia Wetland Park. Here we will take you on a cruise up the St. Lucia estuary through South Africa's largest population of Hippo.

The next day we leave this world heritage site and make our way down the North Coast to Durban, but not before stopping at Shakaland to witness a traditional Zulu kraal (house) and watch some Zulu Dancing. You may even get the Sangoma (witch doctor) to throw some bones for you.

From there it is just a short hop and we're back in Durban where we can drop you off wherever you like.

Birding can be incorporated into this tour. We have one of the countries best bird guides (one of six), available to do this tour for you should you be a keep birder. Please feel free to request a list of special birds we could find for you on this tour.

All the tours we offer are perfectly suited to be the ideal family holiday.

As we do not mix groups together you don’t have to worry about loud or over active children getting in the way of anybody else. Our guides understand that tours with children need to be handled a little differently! On request we can even provide prams, car seats and booster seats for very young children.

About our trip providers and reviews

Our Trip Providers

We carry out extensive company checks on all our providers, over 20 years we have built strong personal relationships with each of them, which assures you of an unparalleled service, great value and the trip of a lifetime.
We have participated in many of the trips found here (we have a nice job) and make our own independent assessments of the services provided, ensuring they meet with our own high standards.

All the trips are supplied by the end provider of that trip.
You may find the same or similar trips elsewhere, usually these are offered by an agent.
We prefer to give you direct access to the trip provider for reasons outlined below:

  1. Best price.
    The price you see here is the direct trip price set by the provider, the same price as purchasing directly with them (which is how it works), there are no added commissions.
    This means you are not paying an agents commission and the provider is receiving their fully budgeted trip cost.
    (agents can demand discounts from providers as well as adding commissions to the providers trip price)
  2. Easy customisation.
    By booking directly with the end provider, making changes is quick and easy.
  3. Fast problem solving.
    On the rare occasion that an issue may arise before or during your trip, by dealing directly with the end provider, problem solving is quick and efficient.
  4. Helping Africa help itself.
    The most straightforward way to assist the economic opportunities and conditions for local people across Africa, is by direct financial interaction with people in Africa. In a nutshell "Tourism".
    This kind of direct tourism gives opportunity to local people.

We limit the number of providers we work with in order to strike a balance between a good choice of trips and to be sure we can honestly recommend the service and validity of each provider.
Because the majority of trips can be customised by the providers, the choice of trip configurations is in the tens of thousands.

Our Reviews

We have 3,000+ reviews for our trips and providers.
All our reviews are fully qualified, we do not take unqualified reviews.
We show all reviews, the good and the critical (very few). Our providers have the ability to respond to reviews and those responses are shown alongside the review.
Acquiring genuine reviews is actually very hard, for our genuine travellers we make this an easy process but many people although satisfied with the service they received do not leave a review.

Many reviews on the internet can be left by an open process with little or no checks.
At best unqualified reviews are worthless, at worst they are misleading. We never take unqualified reviews.

We hope you find a trip to your liking and we are here to assist.

Wishing you happy travels...
