Some of Africa's most famous nature and game reserves are in the KwaZulu Natal province of South Africa. KwaZulu Natal is one of the few places where excellent game viewing can be enjoyed in close proximity to the pleasures of scuba diving and deep-sea fishing. Habitats from coastal dune forests to open bushveld support a wide diversity of wildlife. Within the province of KwaZulu Natal you can be surrounded by mountains, walk through savannah and ancient forest or relax on pristine white sand beaches. There is an abundance of ‘game’ in the area and some of the reserves boasts the Big 5 (Buffalo, Lion, Leopard, Rhino and Elephant).
