Accommodation in Amatigulu KZN Parks
National Park/Reserve - Self Catering
Amatigulu - KZN Parks
Amatigulu Nature Reserve is situated approximately 100 km from Durban on the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast, between the Tugela and Amatikulu River mouths. This reserve is one of the few places in Southern Africa where wildlife can be viewed feeding on forested dunes overlooking the sea.
The Coastal Forest grasslands and rivers are home to giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and smaller antelope and attract much birdlife, including the rare african finfoot. Visitors can enjoy this in a variety of self-guided walks and 4 X 4 game drives through the many vegetation types found in the reserve.
Other activities include canoeing on the Amatigulu Estuary and Nyoni River. Canoes are available for hire per day or part thereof and trained bird guides are available from the local community. Easy access to the beach where surf angling is good. Fishing in the estuary is also extremely rewarding and a whale and game watching tower is situated quite close to the camp.
