Mention the word "Africa" and images of vast
open spaces, beautiful sunsets and a wonderful array
of wildlife are conjured up.
Ezemvelo parks lie spread across the subtropical
plains of the east coast of KwaZulu-Natal and on the
upper reaches of some of its larger rivers. These parks
range from the small but very diverse like Weenen to
large areas like Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park,
the oldest proclaimed park in Africa, where the "big
five" roam free.
These parks offer an astonishing diversity of animal
and bird life, spectacular scenery with mountains, forests
and savannah crossed and dotted with crocodile and hippo
inhabited rivers and lakes.
To visit these magnificent parks, you may come for a
day or stay on in accommodation that ranges from the
luxurious with all facilities, to those which are atmospheric
and comfortable. From secluded bush lodges and camps
deep in the African bush to campsites set beside rivers
under spreading umbrella thorn trees.
