A world of wilderness and adventure awaits

The Elephant Coast of northern KwaZulu-Natal is one of South Africa’s unforgettable ecotourism jewels, boasting incredible biodiversity along with outstanding game viewing and birdwatching opportunities in unspoilt wilderness areas. The region also offers a wide range of unique experiences to both local and international travellers.

The Elephant Coast takes its name from the country’s largest herd of indigenous elephants that have roamed their ancestral routes through the region’s sand forests for centuries. It stretches from iSimangaliso Wetland Park, the largest protected wetland in southern Africa, to the Mozambique border, extending westward to the Lebombo Mountains and provides visitors with an incomparable backdrop to a truly unique African experience.
