With the freedom of your own self-drive vehicle, there is no better way to explore South Africa traveling into the heart of KwaZulu-Natal with it’s fascinating blend of natural wonders, wildlife and history.

You begin with a few days in the spectacular mountain landscape of the Drakensberg, before continuing to the Buffalo River Gorge, site of the historic Anglo-Zulu war battlefields of Rorke’s Drift and Isandlwana. You then travel north-east to the Phinda Private Game Reserve where seven distinct habitats shelter a breathtaking variety of wildlife, including Africa’s Big Five and over 380 bird species.

Finally, a few days are spent relaxing at a secluded beach retreat close to the astonishing iSimangaliso Wetland Park, a World Heritage Site and the perfect conclusion to this absorbing journey.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
