African Travel Concept

The Elephant Coast

The Elephant Coast of KwaZulu-Natal stretches from the world-renowned Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park and iSimangaliso Wetland Park in the south, to Kosi Bay on the Mozambique border in the north.  The region extends west to the Lebombo mountains and includes the Hluhluwe–Umfolozi Game Reserve, the oldest Game Reserve in Africa.

The Elephant Coast is characterised by untouched wetlands teeming with birdlife, Big 5 Safaris and beautiful beaches where sea turtles lay their eggs in one of nature’s most time-honoured ceremonies. This beautiful strip of Indian Ocean coastline is named after the large herds of indigenous elephant that roamed the sandy forests and beaches for centuries, before rural development.

This rich eco-tourism destination is renowned for its wetland and wildlife conservation efforts, both of which are major tourism attractions. When you explore the Elephant Coast you will discover a host of eco-oriented adventures including hiking trails, sea turtle tracking, horse riding and deep-sea fishing. For exciting ocean activities including scuba-diving, whale and dolphin watching, visit Cape Vidal, Sodwana Bay and Kosi Bay on the boundary of Mozambique.
