Welcome to SafariKZN Safari Travel Consultancy

Here at SafariKZN we are not travel agents. We are travellers, tourists and holidaymakers. We just happen to have a passion for the province of KwaZulu Natal (KZN) and we want to help you share our passion and get the most from your visit. We have been travelling to KZN since 1994 and since 2006 have been doing our bit to spread the word, on what we feel is the best all round province in South Africa. We have covered thousands of miles and our knowledge of ‘places to stay’ & ‘things to do’ is wide and varied. Regularly we dedicate time to keep building on our knowledge and experiences.

The planning stage of a holiday or journey is key to a successful trip. It is a time to learn and get an understanding of your destination. It should also be fun too! Let us help you and in some cases put your mind at rest. We will only recommend accommodation where we have stayed on our travels. For excursions and places of interest these, again, will be based on our first hand experiences. Budgets are also important and we will do our very best to work with yours.

KZN is famous for its bush, beach & berg destinations. There are also more ‘b’s’ to add in: Battlefields from both the Zulu & Boer Wars. We can even direct you to the ‘Beer Route’. The province offers excellent safari reserves & lodges and miles of pristine beaches. The Drakensberg mountains are a UNESCO world heritage site. I should mention that KZN boasts two world heritage sites, the second being the iSimangaliso Wetlands. You can combine a bit of everything on a visit to the province and add on other destinations in Southern Africa.

To be able to continue building on and sharing our knowledge we have introduced our new safari consultancy service. For this service there is a nominal fee of £39.99. For that fee you will get a one hour Skype call where we can offer advice on your planned KZN visit. We can offer ideas on places to stay to suit your interests. We will also give you a general idea of what to expect, from driving conditions to the seasonal weather.

If you want us to plan your trip with you we can do that to. Based on our initial Skype call we can follow up with specific places to see, plan your self drive route with realistic times, and let you know any other places of interest on route. For this service the fee will be £79.99.

Our services are also available to holiday companies, travel agents, tour companies, and specialist ‘group’ tour specialists including schools. This service will be quoted for on an individual basis and we are able to travel within the UK if required.
