KZN Safaris for SA Residents

Kwa-Zulu Natal has longsince been one of South Africa's best bush and beach destinations. Whilst sometimes overlooked in favour of the world famous Greater Kruger region farther North, KZN offers South Africans some of the best game viewing and most beautiful landscapes in the country.

In addition, if you book these lodges prior to the 30th of November, for travel any time, you will receive up to R1,500.00 cash back on your petrol spend! No questions asked.
