KwaZulu-Natal North Coast Adventures. View our list of things to do from Durban up the North Coast of KwaZulu-Natal.

Start feeling the thrill of adventure as you head up the KwaZulu Natal North Coast or west into the interior. Don’t let the undulating hills of sugar cane lull you into a sense of security. There are still wild lands here, protected by some of South Africa’s oldest, biggest, and most beautiful national parks. There’s also an almost tangible feeling of history. It’s where the great warriors of Africa, the Zulu’s, fought some of their fiercest and most devastating battles, and the Boers and the British had their bloodiest skirmishes.

The landscapes are as evocative as their Zulu, Afrikaans, and English place names. Isimangaliso Wetland Park, South Africa’s first World Heritage Site, means a place of miracle and wonder. There’s the Dolphin Coast and Drakensberg - Dragon’s mountain.

Warm ocean, pristine beaches, sparkling lagoons, and rich diversity of flora and fauna, both in the sea and on land, are nourishment for the adventurer’s heart. Brightly colored corals and over 1200 species of fish greet the snorkeller and scuba diver; some of the best dive sites in the world are found here. Slackpacking and horse-riding offerings, which include turtle watching, and access to secret coastal stretches.

Inland from Durban, the traveler encounters the land of milk and honey, the Natal Midlands. The tumbling streams and buzz-cut green hills hint of higher peaks to come. With stunning accommodation in quaint little towns, numerous beauty spots and many gourmet roadside stops, the Midlands offers a rural idyll with many mini-activities like zip-lining and canoeing.

Climbing ever upwards, perhaps on an adventure biking or cycling tour, green hills become mountain peaks of the Drakensberg. Her adventure reaches its highest form. Guided multi-day hikes take you where only Basotho shepherds dare to go. Mountain bikers discover exhilarating single track. The whole astounding landscape can be ascended in a hot air balloon.
