Mention the word "Africa" and images of vast open spaces, beautiful sunsets and a wonderful array of wildlife are conjured up.
KZN Wildlife parks lie spread across the subtropical plains of the east coast of KwaZulu-Natal and on the upper reaches of some of its larger rivers.
These parks range from the small but very diverse like Weenen, to large areas like Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park, the oldest proclaimed park in Africa, where the "big five" roam free.
These parks offer an astonishing diversity of animal and bird life, spectacular scenery with mountains, forests and savannah crossed and dotted with crocodile and hippo inhabited rivers and lakes.
To visit these magnificent parks you may come for a day or stay on in accommodation that ranges from the luxurious with all facilities, to those which are atmospheric and comfortable. From secluded bush lodges and camps deep in the African bush to campsites set beside rivers under spreading umbrella thorn trees.
For the adventurous who want to experience the essential Africa, who want to feel the texture of the country, the sights, sounds and smells of Africa there are wilderness trails that allow you to explore with an experienced guide.
