Meet the african elephants
that roam the Elephant Coast
Elephant Coast Safaris is your gateway to this paradise, combining an unforgettable mix of adventure, comfort, and a unique experience of african elephants in unspoilt Africa. Visit places like Tembe, Ndumo, Rocktail Bay, Kosi and Sodwana.
Here, an abundance of african elephants, game, fish and rare species of animals, birds, trees and plants live in an environment unchanged by time.
We call it the African Elephant Coast because it is home to our largest herd of indigenous African elephants, living and foraging in the sand forests as they have done since the dawn of the continent.
Although the elephant coast is relatively unknown to tourists
we know it like the back of our hands (Find out more about us)
To the east, our african elephants' habitat is bounded by the Indian Ocean, where mile after mile of dazzling beaches are lapped by sapphire waters and creaming surf.
The place where african elephants roam free - the Africa that tourists seldom get to see - raw natural beauty where teeming marine life meets
lush sub-tropical vegetation.
The Elephant Coast forms the north-east region of South Africa's unique KwaZulu-Natal province, stretching northward from world heritage site Lake St Lucia to the borders of Swaziland and Mozambique.
By road, it is only a comfortable few hours drive from the city of Durban, tourist hub of the province, but it is still a journey through time to discover ancient Africa in all its majesty.
The Elephant Coast is the only tourist destination in South Africa where in a single day, visitors can view the Big Five, snorkel or scuba-dive at one of the world's most highly-rated dive sites, explore the shores of southern Africa's largest fresh water lake, and visit a 180 000 year old archaeological site believed to be the cradle from which modern man evolved.
Your African Elephant Coast Safari begins at whichever major city in South Africa that you choose as a starting point, with an overnight stay at an approved up-market guest house in Durban, Cape Town, or Johannesburg.
Transport options range from self-drive to chauffeured
vehicles, and scheduled or chartered air flights. The
Elephant Coast offers a rich diversity of accommodation, from luxury bush lodges to tented safari camps, each with its own special individual appeal. All sight-seeing and game-viewing drives are conducted by professional guides whose intimate knowledge of Elephant Coast ecology adds immeasurably to visitors' appreciation.
