The Elephant Coast forms the north-east region of South Africa's unique KwaZulu Natal Province, stretching northward from Lake St Lucia (a world heritage site about 80 km south of Sodwana Bay), to the borders of Swaziland and Mozambique. The region is home to South Africa's largest herd of indigenous African Elephants.
Tembe Elephant Park, Sodwana Bay National Park, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park and many more sites to explore!
Further north, KwaZulu Natal's game sanctuaries represent the best of the African wilderness. This is one of the few places where good 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, from the elephant to the tiny suni. Bird life is equally prolific. This and much more is to be experienced when you visit us at Flat Cat Accommodation.
