Kosi Bay, although in a remote part of northern KwaZulu-Natal, is well worth a visit for the beauty of its isolated white beaches, palm-fringed reed channels, lakes, and waterways. Known for its traditional system of fish-trapping in woven baskets, this little-known area is one of Zululand's loveliest holiday destinations.
The Drakensberg is the highest and most extensive mountain range in Southern Africa and stretches from Sehlabathebe National Park in the south to the Sentinel in the north, a distance of circa. 200 km (125 miles). The summit is a plateau characterised by domes, ridges and valleys sloping gradually to the west and buttresses, cutbacks, gullies, free-standing peaks and sheer cliffs to the east. The Thaba Ntlenyana at 3,482 m (11,452 ft) is the highest point and Sani Pass at 2,865 m (9,400 ft) the lowest, with the average altitude being 3000 m above sea level.
Have you ever driven across the Jozini Dam wall en route to Ponta Do Ouro or Ponta Malongane in Mozambique or perhaps to Ndumo Game Reserve or Tembe Elephant Park? It is a pretty awesome experience to actually drive on the 90m high wall with the dam on one side and a sheer drop down to the Pongola River on the other. In fact, many people stop at the lay-by on the far side of the wall to get a better look at the river as it flows off into the Makhathini Flats wondering what it would be like to paddle this stretch of the river. Well wonder no longer here is a brief description of the first 15 km of Pongola River from directly below the Jozini dam wall to the Pongola River Camp.
This Journey offers a unique opportunity to learn a variety of skills from experienced rangers that will enhance your knowledge and appreciation of wildlife, conservation and the African bush.
