  • Winner of three consecutive ‘AA Travel Guides & SAA Resort of the Year awards
  • In spring, the grasslands are alive with warthogs. In summer, masses of red ‘Pride of De Kaap flowers complement the wild dates on the reclining palms along the slopes and steam balks of this rugged reserve
  • Several rivers rise in or just out of the reserve, winding to the Pongola River. These rivers are attractive with waterfalls, pools and gorges flanked by dense thickets and riverine forest.
  • After years of near extinction from this area, Redbilled Oxpeckers were reintroduced to Ithala in 1994. Many sighting of immature redbilled Oxpeckers have been recorded since, confirming that they have accepted their new home.
