North Coast – Magical Encounters with Ocean Creatures

Magical encounters with our planet's most endearing sea creatures, a walk in the footsteps of Africa's mightiest king, gourmet delights overlooking a warm Indian Ocean...all possible when you're on KwaZulu-Natal's North Coast.

The Dolphin Coast, an expanse of magnificent beaches and a panorama of waving sugar cane, stretches across the malaria-free North Coast of Kwazulu Natal from Zimbali in the South to the mighty Tugela in the North. This is the playground of the bottlenose dolphins, which frolic in the waters close to shore and are visible all year round.

The dolphins favor this stretch of coastline because of its relatively clear and shallow waters,
allowing dolphins to swim close to shore in order to feed. Surveys of these waters suggest that
they are frequented by a school of about 200 dolphins, which break up into smaller groups. Whales
can also be spotted on their annual migration to Mozambique for the summer.
