Maputaland holidays offer the chance to combine safaris spotting The Big Five, with snorkelling next to turtles and dolphins. Fronting the Indian Ocean, in the northern reaches of KwaZulu Natal, and with countless parks and reserves, Maputaland is all about beautiful natural landscapes and exquisite plant diversity, making the region a nature lover’s paradise.
On the coast there's beautiful, unspoilt
white sand beaches to see turtles nesting in the soft sweeping sands, and diving opportunities to immerse yourself in rainbow-coloured coral reefs and a myriad of marine life. Back on shore you can explore sand dunes and mangroves teeming with wildlife, spot lions in the UNESCO World Heritage site national park, and explore the pristine coastal forests for some outstanding birding opportunities. All it all together and you have all the ingredients for a perfect getaway, and the ideal spot to relax on a road trip from either Johannesburg or Durban.
